Suncheon Bay Nature Reserve Visit – Suncheon, South Korea
Suncheon Bay Nature Reserve (순천만습지) is a protected natural area near Suncheon, South Korea. It is a bay between Yeosu and Goheung peninsulas, located 8 km (5.0 mi) from the center of Suncheon, with 21.6 km2 (8.3 sq mi) of mudflats and 5.4 km2 (2.1 sq mi) of reed beds.
From the junction of the Dong and Isa streams to the beginning of the mudflat in Suncheon Bay, it has the widest reed bed in Korea. In autumn, reed blossoms, red turkeys, and white migratory birds make the area a popular attraction.
Suncheon Bay Nature Reserve and Reed Field is a wonderful place to visit if you like the peace and quiet of nature. We started early and enjoyed walking around.
This place is huge so be prepared to walk a lot. The reed field was beautiful in summer, very green. The birds, ducks, herons, crickets were all humming the entire time. The air was nice, crisp and clean. I enjoyed watching the crabs and mudfish interact in their natural habitat.
