Mara-do Island is a small island located at the southern end of South Korea. It is about 11 km away from Moseulpo Harbor in Daejeong-eup, Marado Island is 4.2 km long, but only 39 m at its widest shaped like a sweet potato, and inhabitants fish and provide accommodations for tourists for a living.
As there is no water on Mara-do Island, people get their water from gathering rain water, and they use solar cells to generate what electricity they have. In 1883, three families first came to the island and began living there. At first they lived off the food growing there, but once the food became scarce, they burned the mountain thick with trees to create field for farming. It was said that all the snakes and frogs died in that fire, and thus no snakes and frogs are found in Mara-do Island even until now. The island is famous for sea fishing.
