The Cave Sound Research Institute is holding a music performance called the Udo Cave Concert on Udo, an island off the east coast of Jeju, at 3pm on Nov. 4 (Saturday).
The venue for the annual concert is Dongan Gyeong-gul (동안경굴) of Udo. This cave is affectionately known as “whale nostril cave” and is said to be one of the eight best sights of Udo. It is underwater during high-tide and reveals itself only when the tide is low.
Udo is referred to as ‘Cow Island’ in Korean, as locals insist the island is shaped like a cow swimming through the ocean toward Jeju.
Ferries to Udo are available at Seongsan Harbor in Seongsan. The ferry runs every 20- 30 minutes and takes about 15 minutes, allowing time for visitors to observe Seongsan Ilchulbong (Sunrise Peak) and the mounded slope of Udo. A 5-minute ride on the prepared shuttle bus or in your own vehicle takes you from Udo port to the cave.
