I was disappointed that you couldnt really even walk on the beaach at all.. the area close to the westin chosun was the only area that you could actually get down to the beach the rest of it was a mound of sand and bull dozers.. Would have been good if there was some kind of notice that work was... More

We have visited 5 times there and we always stayed near Haeundae beach. It is very nice all seasons. But we like to be there in summer the best.. Always there are so many people there in summer and they came there for swimming. As it is the resort area there, there are so many nice hotels there. We will... More

Even though we visited the beach in the winter, it was still very beautiful. Scenic from left to right!

I grew up in Honolulu. Haeundae Beach is a very appealing beach, even by Hawaiian standards. At the moment, approximately half of Haeundae Beach (across the coastline) is being reclaimed in an attempt to stem beach erosion and extend the depth of the beach (distance of beach to water). This effort will continue for another two years...until 2017. Haeundae has... More

DO NOT EXPECT so much here... :-) There are so many accommodations, but a bit expensive. And, things to play are continued until sun rise. If you hate loud place in night, Haeundae Beach is not for you.

Beaches are not always clean, Haeundae you could eat off the sand! It's a lovely place, last summer there was a terrible storm and a huge amount of debris got washed ashore, the council had it spotless in less than a day! This is a beach to walk along day or night, watch the fishing boats ast night, romantic walks,... More

Our family and another family stayed at a hotel right on the beach and we're glad we did. The sand is soft and there's a lot of beach so it never felt crowded, even though we were there in mid-June. There is also a slide from the walkway to the beach area and the kids enjoyed that too! The water... More

If you have to go to Busan for Bexco business or has any chance to get to Haeundae Beach, go for it. It will be so relaxing, with plenty of options for food and drinks at night. From there you can also reach other attractions as the Busan Aquarium, the Paradise Casino, etc.

Apparently it is really crowded in Summer ( I haven't been during that season) but I enjoyed watching the first sunrise of 2014 with friends with met at the guest house, as there is like horse riding pass, a helicopter flying by, and just hundreds and thousands of people watching the sun rise with you! its cold before the sun...
