The city made countless visits to Korea Forest Service and theNational Assembly to develop a national recreation forest in the city. As aresult, Muui-do Island is now the home of the 46th national recreation forestof the country.

There are two theories about the origin of the island's name, 'Muui-doIsland.' One is that it resembles a war general in his official uniformdancing. And the other theory is that a heavenly woman descended onto theisland to dance.

Truly, the island commands a spectacular view to make even aheavenly woman dance. It is close to Horyonggoksan Mountain, Guksabong, HanagaeBeach, and Keunmuri Beach, along with the amusement part in Silmi-do Island,which also have plenty of forest resources and hiking routes. All theserecreational resources make the area a popular destination for tourists.
