The beach is immensely popular with Koreans and tourists in summer and the surrounding area is the center of local night life. All of the popular tourist hotels are nearby as is shopping ranging from luxury to everyday. This beach also offers marvelous of Busan harbor and is a real must for visitors to Busan.

Having lived in Busan for many years, I have seen the various beaches around the city. I have to say that this is the best Busan and maybe even Korea. It's very clean because of the volunteers and city workers who pick up the trash daily. Also, there are many restaurants and a local market nearby the beach. One thing... More

This is the beach area in Busan. Has a boardwal the entire length that is very nice. Beach is not crowded. For some reason Koreans do not seem to swim when it is not summer despite the weather being in the high 70s. No one was in their bathing suits but sitting fully clothed. Water was delightful. Koreans/foreigners use forced... More

I enjoyed this long, clean beach just outside my hotel (the Westin Chosun). Great promenade, nice sand, scenic everywhere. Also it's close to many restaurants. Just up from the beach is a little strip that has many food stands with local ocean delicacies like silkworms, sea slugs, and more ordinary fare. In the early morning, if you walk all the... More

A beautiful beach just next to tall modern buildings which creates a sense of contrasts! I was there for only a brief visit in November.

I love it, esp when you visit the beach at night. Very clean and surrounded by cafes and restaurants. For solo traveler, you'll get envy because there's lots of couples :D

I was lucky to get there late afternoon, on a sunny day. The highrise buildings east of Haeundae were bathed in sunlight. Plenty of people, but still very nice. I guess it would be beautiful any time of day, but sunset is unforgettable.

The most popular beach in South Korea. All Korean people want to visit here. Enjoy blue sea, sea food (at Jagalchi fish market, a little far from here). Summer time is most busy time. Nearby you can enjoy Dongbaek park too.
