The most popular beach in South Korea!

Haeundae is the most famous beach in South Korea. For this, you will inevitably see A LOT of people around August, which can be a downside if you don't want to be among the... read more

I can see this place would be a fun place in the summertime. The beach is beautiful. Though the horizon is crowded with building and structure and so not the typical beach, but that makes it unique. The beach leads to the concrete walk where there are cafe's and coffee stalls. One can imagine how fun an evening out would... More

Haeundae is the most famous beach in South Korea. For this, you will inevitably see A LOT of people around August, which can be a downside if you don't want to be among the crowds. This place is definitely not for relaxing, though there are lots of fun things to do for youngsters.

We came here as our hotel was quite nearby. This beach is touted as probably the most famous in the country. It is not difficult to see why. The beautiful rough white sand sticks to your body. Looking afar across the vast beach, one can see the magnified beauty of pure whiteness. Unlike ordinary beaches elsewhere, this place holds cultural... More

Beach was overly crowded. Hoped to have seen some Seagulls when visiting but there were only crows and pigeons around . Rather disappointing.

This beach is wild and beautiful. There is generally something going on around it. It's a nice walking beach too.

It's cool beach but if you travel south east Asia you will find the water cold and it feals like Miami beach a bit with the city behind wich make it also interesting. At night you can go drink and see live music so that is really cool

The sand is soft and white, the water may be a bit chilly. There were many beachgoers when we visited, but there was still ample room to layout in a spot of our own. Showers and shops are nearby, as is the subway. Great for people watching! We saw plenty of sunbathers, including many people in bikinis. I guess the... More

Compared to beaches in Southeast Asia, Hawaii or the Caribbean, this beach is not “beautiful”, however, for a beach in Korea, it is definitely one of the nicer ones. I would recommend this beach more for people watching and a cultural experience than anything else. First of all, Koreans hate the sun, so all the locals at this beach will... More
