The Jindo Miracle Sea Road Festival took place in Jindo, South Jeolla Province, from May 16-19. It is the Korean version of Moses’ miracle, and the seawater parted to open a pathway between Jindo Island and Modo Island for a few hours a day. The phenomenon, which takes place once a year, is caused by the difference in high tides and low tides. This year marked the 40th edition of the festival, which attracted a great number of local and foreign visitors. Visitors had a chance to walk along the sea road between the islands and enjoyed a variety of cultural activities and programs.
