The location of Cheongsapo Daritdol Skywalk is in the middle of the closed section of the Donghae Nambu Line. Once trails ran on this part of the railroad from Mipo to Songjeong.
Cheongsapo Daritdol Skywalk stands 20 meters (65 feet) over the sea and stretches out 72.5 meters (240 feet) to the ocean. Its width changes from 3 meters (10 feet) to 11.5 meters (38 feet) along with its curvy shape.

Cheongsapo is the name of the town right next to the observatory. Daritdol in its name means stepping stones and it refers to a line of five rocks from the Choengsapo shore to the lighthouse.
The Cheongsapo area is perfect for farming seaweed thanks to its strong currents and abundant marine life. Haenyeo (female divers) are catching a lot of seafood here like abalone, sea cucumber, and sea urchin.
