Manly or Bondi beach of Busan only a whole lot weirder but in a very entertaining way. A very safe place as well even at night and most of all free WIFI yehey! I mentioned weird since where else would you be able to witness bikini clad ladies with matching high heels on the soft beach sand? who's complaining anyway?... More

The sand is nice and soft, but not perfect. The water is pretty cold (compared to Vietnam) but that was only refreshing. The water is sadly not so clean, maybe due to boats coming in pretty close to the bathing area. There are some vendors at the beach but they only sell food and drinks, which is actually handy but...

This is probably my favorite beach in Korea, apart from Hyeopjae on Jeju Island. There are always crowds in summer, but this doesn't bother me too much. The water temperature is warmer than Gangneung and Sokcho in Gangwon-do, and the beach is nice and sandy. Fun place to spend a day tanning and people-watching, with lots of restaurants nearby.

Very nice beach with many activities. There's also an aquarium on the beach. We didn't have time to visit. There are many beach chairs with umbrella's for relaxation. Restaurants, shops, bars are in abundance to say the least. There is also a little mall not far from the beach location (within walking distance).

Our first night there was a Christian Concert which was an unexpected Treat! The fireworks every night were fun and free entertainment by singers throughout the beach was again an unexpected Treat. The entire beach is patrolled by Busan PD so you feel safe walking on the well lit walkways.

this beach. Its busy, full of high-rise hotels and noisy but on closer inspection this is one of the cleanest beaches I have seen, the crowd is decent and food and drink options abound and are generally pretty classy. A lovely way to end a real wonderful holiday to this great country.

We came here in late spring so it wasn't overly hot, but we still had a great time relaxing in the sand listening to the ocean. I really really love the relaxed beachy vibe in Busan, and especially in the Haeundae area. People are very friendly and not stressed at all. There are a lot of tourists around and I've... More

A place to relax and have activities with friends. No need to worry if you need the rest room or drinks or food. It is also clean and safe. A good place to see the Korean spend their spare time there.

We stayed at the nearby Novotel Ambassador Hotel and found this beach to be pretty average by world standards and comparing to beaches back home in Durban, South Africa...
