  • Situated in Donghae (Gangwon-do), Mukho Port (opened in 1941) used to be the best trading port on the East Coast, but it has changed to a fishing base.

    A large wholesale seafood market at the port offers a wide array of seafood from squid to mackerel, mackerel pike, crabs, and sea squirts.

    From early in the morning on weekends, merchants across the country gather at the market to purchase fresh seafood.

     

    Mukho Port, in particular, is renowned for squid along with Jumunjin Port. Indeed, the port is full of squid (the largest squid market on the East Coast) and boats carrying them.

    The port is surrounded by the manned Mukho Lighthouse and Mukho Lighthouse Park. There are three ways to get to the park: a suspension bridge (which appeared in the popular Korean drama, “Shining Inheritance”), a road, and Lighthouse Pathway. Lighthouse Pathway is decorated with artistic murals (with verses) and colorful signs.

    Donghae Regional Maritime Affairs & Port Office has made strong efforts to transform Mukho Port into a pleasant park for both tourists and residents by establishing broad squares, promenades, and leisurely facilities; by 2012, the port will be the home of the largest coastal guard base after completing a port extension.
