 Description Suncheonman Bay has a rare coastal wetland featuring fantastic reed fields, wild turkey habitats, and curving waterways, creating beautiful ecological landscapes.The broad intertidal zone has developed a rich wetland with a diversity of mudflat creatures including lugworms, crabs and shellfish.

The wetland provides wintering grounds for some 200 kinds of birds, including hooded cranes, black-headed storks and spoonbills, which have been designated as natural monuments by the Korean government; and 11 internationally rare species including white-faced plovers, goldfinches, reed warblers and oystercatchers.The huge groups of migratory birds flying up against the sunset have become the scenic emblems of Suncheonman Bay.

In 2006, the Korea Tourist Service named the bay one of the nation's most outstanding places for landscape appreciation.
