Based on a manwha of the same name, Tamra the Island is inspired by the story of a Dutch explorer, Hendrik Hamel, who was shipwrecked on Jeju in the mid 17th century. In the 17th-century Joseon era, a young Englishman, William (Pierre Deporte) is shipwrecked on an isolated island called Tamra (known today as Jeju). Forced to deal with the quirky, fun-loving inhabitants, he quickly falls for Beo Jin (Seo Woo), a cheerful diver who dreams of escaping from her limited existence.

Seemingly destined to carry on the ancestral tradition of diving, Beo Jin is drawn to William, who emobodies the outside world she hasn't seen. Meanwhile, Park Kyu, a noble exiled from the capital, also falls for Beo Jin, and clashes with William. Beo Jin will have to choose between the kind-hearted, innocent castaway, and the haughty, closed-off prince. All three, as they interact with each other and the other island inhabitants, learn what it means to grow up.

My comment :
I like this series since the 1st episode till the end.
It's a comedy, romantic, historical, cultural drama.
The plot is not complicated and the story is not depressing. 
It's easy to follow.  You can laugh out loud.
Very entertaining. Recommended!

Rating : 8/10
