Nice sandy beach, but not too clean

This beach is lovely and huge, with perfect sand and small waves, perfectly located in the heart of the urban buzz of the Haeundae neighborhood. I'm glad we stayed in this area... read more

We have stayed at the Westin Chousan Hotel which is right on the Haewoondae Beach. Beach itself is very long and wide, busy with tourists and activities but keep in mind this is a city beach right next to a very busy street. Therefore if you are expecting quiet, peaceful and enjoyable time that is not what you will get.... More

Fun fun fun. For the kids and the adults. There is a vibrant nightlife and the beach area is clean and fun for the kids as well. There are many different types of restaurants that line the beach. We will not go anywhere else but this beach in Busan!

One of the most overcrowded beaches in Asia. I love the area in the off season, but there I would recommend several other choices over this particular beach. Too many people and too much waste as a result

Ok, Haeundae Beach is very famous in Busan. But If you looking for a quiet place to enjoy, it's not a place to go! Too many tourists and nothing so much special to do at the beach. However, there are lots of restaurants and cafes along the beach so you can seat and enjoy!

A nice beach with fine sand but not a "Wow" place to be in. Wandered around the area and found a food alley across the road. Interesting place to try some hot piping dumplings, noodles, etc. The fish cake shop opposite the underground station offers a wide variety of fish cake after our 'beach walk'.

This beach is lovely and huge, with perfect sand and small waves, perfectly located in the heart of the urban buzz of the Haeundae neighborhood. I'm glad we stayed in this area and would recommend Busan to anyone, but I was quite surprised at the amount of litter in the water and washing up on shore. Throughout our 5 days... More

I'd like to give more stars but I feel it's hugely overrated compared to Gwangalli beach. It's just a beach full of tourists. The location is Ok but again, others are better. There's also less to do because it's all focused on backpacker drunkards; cheap motels galore and crappy bars like... ugh.. 'ho bar', where everything is too loud to... More

It's a nice beach long beach but is always too crowed. However it is great for the kids You're better off going to Seonjong beach up the road if you want some more peace and quiet

I liked the beach better than the one around the corner, Gwangali. You can't miss the fish market, quite interesting. You pick out your fish, octopus, etc from the 100's of tanks and they cook it for you. The Sunset Hotel is a steal and is ocean/beach view and lovely rooms with a full american/asian breakfast included. Downstairs is a... More
