is a city
located in the South Gyeongsang
province, just off the coast of the port city of Busan
, South Korea
. The Daewoo
Shipyard (DSME) in Okpo
Heavy Industries (SHI) in Gohyeon are both located on Geoje Island. The city also offers a wide range of tourist sights.
The city is made up of a number of islands,
of which by far the largest is Geoje Island.
These photographs of Geoje Island were taken during a weekend in May, when we drove
from Daejeon along the fast expressway, and stayed overnight at a motel on the Pebble Beach. The weather was overcast and
rainy, but the island was still beautiful and relaxing.
These show the walk along the coast road, and the Fishing boats pulling the nets in. We also visited
the harbour, and climbed the Southern Rock to see the islands.
