Jangdok Island & Lighthouse, Wonsan Pier
Jangdok Island & Lighthouse
Jangdok Island & Lighthouse on Wonsan Pier (장덕도등대/長德島燈臺) is a thin, rocky pier located in Wonsan on North Korea's East Coast.
It was established in 1919 by the Japanese to help guide ships into Wonsan Harbor.
Jangdok Island & Lighthouse is located on a small rocky island in Yonghung Bay.
It is about a 15-minute walk from Wonsan city centre.
Depending on the hotel you're staying in, it is just a short walk away.
From the Tongmyong Hotel, it is approx. 10 minutes walk away to the start of the Wonsan Pier.
From here, it is another 10 minutes walk down the pier to the lighthouse.
Walking along the causeway to Jangdok Island & Lighthouse will take about 15 minutes to complete the walk one way.
However, it is best done at a leisurely pace and you can stop along the way to have a look at all of the stalls and small BBQ areas selling seafood.
At the end of the pier is the lighthouse. You can have a look around here, but cannot go into the lighthouse itself.
Here is a common picnic and BBQ area for the local North Koreans so you can expect to see many people here - especially in the summertime, of a weekend, or on a public holiday.
