Lovely beach but some improvements with the swimming boundary would be good

Haeundae really is a beautiful beach. Much nicer water and sand than Gwangalli. But try and go in June or September or October. It is insanely busy in July and August. Also, I'd... read more

Haeundae really is a beautiful beach. Much nicer water and sand than Gwangalli. But try and go in June or September or October. It is insanely busy in July and August. Also, I'd really appreciate it if the lifeguards would move the swimming limit out. Durring low tide you can only get knee high before getting whistled at. During high... More

This beach is very famous beach in Korea, but due to a lot of people come to Haeundae, the beach is polluted by great amount of trash. It is not a clever idea to walk along the sand without your shoes. Also, food price around Haeundae are very expensive.

Korea has only a handful of famous beaches and Haeundae is probably the most famous. It's quite nice, though be forewarned: the water only warms up briefly at the very end of the summer. I was there in July and it was still freezing -- not too surprising, given that the Sea of Japan (or 'Donghae' -- 'East Sea' as... More

Small beach in the city among tall buildings. Since it's small it can get crowded. Beach is clean and water is nice.

Nah. This is highly overrated as are lots of beaches in China, Japan and Korea. Very crowded and only a small strip allowed to swim.

Great if you have a plan for activities. Very clean and windy. Otherwise just take some picture before going off.
