a good place to chill during the evening. It will be packed during summer. My visit was last autumn, 2014 which had lesser people at the beach. it is a good place for relax and a good walk

Definitely a nice spot if you want to be around a lot of people. Gwangalli is quieter and more fun (at least in my opinion). But the water at Haeundae beach is better.

One of the must visit/popular tourist spot and Korean series/movie filming location is Haeundae Beach, it is located in Busan’s high end district but guess what? It’s free and open to anyone although you should expect higher parking fee rates and food costs in case you’re travelling by car and eating out. You might want to lessen also your expectations...

This is a great place to go in the summer for sun, swimming, as well as good food and drinks close by. It can get a bit crowded though, so if you are looking for solitude this is not the place.

Don't get me wrong, this is a pretty place. The problem I have with it is that every single Korean flocks to this place as soon as it is warm. There are great attractions and shows at this beach, but it is far too trendy for my liking.

Nice beach to take a walk in. We visited the past weekend, so it is still February, cold and still very windy. But we were blessed with a nice sunny day, and lot of people with selfie sticks were around us. It had good sand and not bad in terms of cleanliness, but you will notice the constructions in the...

Just a stroll from my hostel, I felt like I was on South Beach in Miami. This is a pretty chill spot for some sun and sand and perhaps a good book.

we went during winter. The beach is still under maintenance. So the place is a bit messy. But the surrounding is very nice and peaceful. Love it.
