Hometown Special - Incheon
Baengnyeongdo is home to the world's one of two natural airports called Sagot. It also contains the Congdol Coast, made up of bean-sized pebbles of multiple colors as well as spectacular basaltic cliffs in Jinchon-ni and Dumujin, designated as Scenic Spot No. 8 for being one of the most dramatic scenery of the Western Coast.
