You can get the seaweed, shells and experience various forms of sea life. The island of Jindo was once populated with savage tigers, according to the legend, when the tiger appeared people fled to Modo Island.

But an elderly woman was unable to flee, and so she prayed to the sea god for a pathway that would allow her to walk to the island, at which point the water divided.
