“Do” (pronounced like ‘doe’) meaning island in Korean. Deokjeokdo is one of the many islands off the western coast of Incheon. Fourteen of us met at Incheon’s Port station to take a ferry for about an hour. (*Incheon residents got 50% off the ferry cost!) The island is almost deserted with the exception of a few restaurants, a handful of pensions and one Family Mart (convenience store). We brought snacks, drinks and things to grill.

When we arrived on the island we were quickly approached by two competing pensions for our business. They both gladly offered us rides to their respective pensions so we could decide where we wanted to stay. These pensions were virtually the same, but we chose one for it’s slightly better location to the beach and dropped off our things. We immediately walked over to the beach and set up our things and began grilling some lunch. We hung out on the beach all day and into the night when we started a fire right on the beach.

The next day we enjoyed a little more beach time before getting some amazing Chinese food at this great little restaurant. It was a small place where the owner/cook/waiter/delivery man made us all a feast literally as fast as he possibly could! The name of the restaurant is
바다 반점 (Bada Banjeon) meaning Sea Spot, I believe.
