Nice scenery with lots of activities to from morning till dawn!! The best is to stay at Novotel Ambassador Hotel. When at the beach area don't forget to go to the Busan Aquarium located near the Smart Beach counter.

Well it's fun for Asia, not a bad place all in all, good night life, but don't expect too much, it's not that great. I would equate it to a Japanese Izakaya district.

Haeundae is a nice beach but definitely avoid during the summer, it gets much too crowded, and a good portion of the beach is covered in parasols. Best to visit a different beach in Busan around that time. However the area is nice and the beach is good for a visit when it's less crowded.

The beach is quite ordinary and crowded maybe it was summer. Go further away from the beach and walk uphill and along the sea coast. The sea view is stunning. Really enjoy it.

Big sand beach, nice small park, side walking along the beach is very nice but in high season too many tourists. The water is not warm, often the waves are too big and stormy weather didn't allow to swim and get inti the sea unfortunately. Nice place with many people during the day and in the evening. Across the road... More

We are not really beach people, but stopped here with our son to build a sand castle and regularly walked along the beachfront. The beach is laid out in different sections including one called sand experience with a giant sand hill on it. The beach was really clean and there was loads going on. I agree with the views of...

There were hundreds of sun umbrellas. Nothing natural about the beach. The water looked clean, but was too cold for me to venture in. Nothing like the beautiful beaches of my home. Lots of shops and restaurants across the road. I wouldn't stay there, as it is too touristy for me, although the targets are Korean tourists, not foreigners, so... More

Wasn't as busy as normal, maybe due to being there midweek and approaching typhoon. Lots of space and not overcrowded.

Go there in the evening: there will be street musicians and the atmosphere is very cosy. Also girls: if you sit on the beach, don't be surprised when guys come to offer you drinks, it's a tradition. However, be careful, there are nice guys who just want to hang and others, well, you know.
