Sandbar Experience Festival(Hansando-Yeomgae Area)

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.
