now a short drive from the airport. I'd take the bus from the airport or Unseo station so you can enjoy a drink. there is a great round the island hike takes five hours;. I will do that next week and write a fresh review. the beach is very nice includes a zipline and bungalows = 20,000 won per night! with the new bridge it is easy to get to. if you have five hour overlay you can defintiely make it to Muido and back.

This island was near Incheon airport, and had good beach and trail road. Though there was not good public transportation, but it was worth to visit in a one-day course of trip. There had two famous beach, the road to there was not good. There had sea bridge through beach, and connect with trail road. We enjoyed walk at Hanagea beach and sea bridge. Though the road in Muuido was not good, but no problem.

Don't stop at Muuido Island! Take the shuttle bus on the roller coaster ride to the last little village on Muuido Island there you will find a surprise! Beyond the big seafood restaurant is a span bridge built in 2010 so that you can walk across to So Muuido Island. A tiny fishing village hugs the shore but if you follow the sign post in the middle of the village up the hill you will see tiny gardens on both sides of the path full of red pepper plants and houses painted with murals. At the top is a church and community centre. Over the hill you wander down to the seashore. Such contrasts - the old houses and a very large new museum. The design appears to replicate waves! The museum tells the story of this significant village. Just make sure you don't go on Monday as museums etc. are closed that day in Korea. For nature lovers there are stairs that lead farther up the hill above the village and around the side. Great view of the sea and very quiet!

We spent 3 days camping on the beach and I have to say it was gorgeous! There are several activities to do at the place, asides from swimming in the ocean; there is a huge zip line that costs only 15 dollars per person, and I have to say, I am not acrophobic but it was REALLY high. You can pick seashells, I got some pretty impressive ones (and we even had a seashell showoff, I won). Moreover, there was a number of people who were catching clams while the tides were low, and in the end, finders keepers, they got to eat all the clams they found! How jealous... And lastly, there is a tiny stable with two horses, which you can take a nice horse ride along the shoreline and back. A memorable experience.

We spend 24 hours at Muuido island at the Hanagae beach mid of September 2015. The island itself is cloth to incheon airport. You can approach the island only by ferry or swimming. The bridge construction started and probably finished after 2017. However the ferry boat can load around 40-50 cars. A car round trip cost you 29000 Won. The ticket needs to be purchased before entering the ferry. Ticket booth is close to the entry point. Probably you can reach that area also by bus. Waiting time at this Saturday morning was just 20 Minutes. The ride takes you 10 Minutes and don’t forget the special shrimp cracker to feed seagulls. Many people use this island for fishing and hiking. The island itself is not very big. Hanagae beach has parking facilities. We had booked a small cottage in advance. Additionally you have to pay entrance fee for the beach area. If I am not mistaken a 1000 Won per person. The cottage is equipped with small kitchen (incl.ref, micro wave, rice cooker, sink), ondol room 20 square meter, ondol bed stuff and small 00. Outside you have a small terrace with table, chairs and fire place for barbecue. You have also other choices which you can find at the web page. There are couple of restaurants serving fish mainly. They were not very busy at this time. No any 7/11 at the beach. We found one C&U at the ferry port. During day time there was low tide and few people came to look for mussels. At the beach you can rent a quad 15000 Won for 20 minutes but you cannot leave beach and you cannot go to sea side. Consequently was not our first choice. To be honest I did not see one people driving a quad. There is one tower (something like 15 meter high) were you can go down along a wire rope. Length around 400 meter. One ride 13000 Won. Equipment will be provided there. Most of the people had fun. Only one old lady was screaming like hell. LoL. Obviously Hanagae beach has been also used for some Korean soap drama. Finally it is a nice place for a group adventure were kids could have fun together and the oldies as well. No one was complaining about barbecue and campfire at the beach. We left Sunday early morning back to town and there was no much going on traffic wise. Between ferry and Hanagae beach we visited a new caffee shop which obviously just opened. Nice place with a nice terrace where you can look at all the planes coming in or going out. Coffee, Tea and waffle were good. It is definetly a place for stop over. They also offer camping and lodge. English was no problem at the coffee shop but at Hanagae beach. We may come back one day to Muuido.

Visited mid-week (Thurs-Sat). Had a great time and the beach to ourselves. Saturday the crowds started in.
Not the most pristene beach we have seen. The tide fluxuation is extreme....like the water is 3/4 of a mile away at low tide, but was still cool to walk that far out and explore the sea bed.
Zipline and 4 wheeler rental is beachside as well as good hiking on the island.
Make the trip, you won't be disappointed!
Basic info as of August 2015:
Freeway tolls to from Seoul: 7,600 Won each way.
Car Ferry: 30,000 Won roundtrip plus 1,000 won per person I think. Takes about 10 minutes to make the crossing.
Beach fees: 2,000 won per person.
Beach hut rentals: 40,000 won/night plus 10,000 key deposit.
Little cabins as pension rooms also available, my guess is 60,000 won or more per night.
Zipline was 13,000 and is about 400 meters long, 70-80 feet tall.
4 wheelers were 15,000 won for 20 minutes.
Showers are available for a small fee, cold water only.
Bathroom clean, no problems.
Several places to eat right on the beach, most serving seafood.
Small store with basics as well.

Most people seem to take the ferry out early in the morning for either day hiking, or spending the day at the beach. If you camp for the night, you can take the ferry out early afternoon and there's no line. Then there's no line out the following morning. I should note most of the eating establishments on Hanagae Beach look like hepatitis or food poisoning waiting to happen. We brought our own food and were glad we did. Also, I think the cabins on the beach are a rip off - mostly foreigners do those. If you have your own camping gear, take your car across on the ferry and save money!

I went to Muuido, expecting a "western" definition of a beach, and I was very disappointed. I caught the bus from the airport to the ferry (Don't believe the websites that claim they can take you from Incheon station, they lie) walked 20 minutes to the ferry (it was a narrow road, make sure the cars can see you as you walk) and took the ferry to the island. From the ferry station, I took a bus to Hanagae "beach." Then I spent 30 minutes at the "beach" before deciding to go home. No swimming, no tanning for me. On the plus side the food smelled divine on the Island and the whole journey cost about 10 dollars round trip.

Muuido(무의도) is located very close from Yeongjoungdo(영종도) where Incheon airport is located.
So it only takes about 30 minutes to get to the ferry terminal(잠진도 선착장) from the airport.
Muuido is very peaceful island and it's good island to experience the Korean Island.
Since Muuido is not that big and far away, you can enjoy some beaches and mountains in a day.
Muuido is also famous for the shooting place for movies.

You can read more details on my blog.

Went to Muuido on a Friday. Took the car Ferry and drove to Hanaggae beach. Even though it was low tide...the clamming and relaxing walks were memorable. Great sand and the fresh pine smells were wonderful! Next time I will rent a bungalow. Recommend this gem of a place to decompress.
