Anmado

Anma-do (안마도) is an island off the coast of Jeollanam-do province, South Korea. Anma-do covers an area of 6.09 km² and is home to approximately 200 residents. The landscape features several peaks: Duit-san (177 m), Mak-bong (167 m), and Geon-san (145 m). Anma-do is suited for agriculture, and many of its residents work as farmers. Its main agricultural products include rice, wheat, corn, garlic, bean, sesame, and pepper. There is currently one elementary school located on the island.

Overview

The topography of Anmado forms the shape of saddle. In Korean language, Anma means kinds of saddle. It borders with Jeollanbuk do on the northest part of South Jeolla province. Anmado came to be an island because Noryeong mountains of the west submerged. That is, it is a kind of islet but there are large mountains which are lower than sea surface. Transportation is quite inconvenient for even catching fish around another islet such as Nakwol do or Song-i do.
