Sandbar Experience Festival(Hansando-Yeomgae Area)
Introduction

Yemgaeman Sandbar in Sansando is where the salt was roasted during the Japanese Invasion of Korea in 1592, and it’s where the unique festival is held along with a number of participation programs such as mantis shrimp catching, shell collecting, and fishing.
The 1st and 2nd festivals were a village event, but became a larger scale festival with more events participated by the myeon residents.
A wide range of events are held on the eve of the festival, such as lighting at Chubongbyo Bridge and fireworks. At the sandbar, visitors are welcome to catch short-necked clams, mantis shrimps, eels, sea cucumber, and other types of shellfish rich in taurine and succinic acid that are good for liver.
