The setting of this beach really is beautiful with the rocks spreading into the water, hills behind and the long arc of sand. It is especially beautiful in the evenings around sunset. It is a busy urban beach with lots of umbrellas everywhere during the day, but it was less crowded than I had expected given some of the other... More

Haeundae beach is a pretty happening place with lots of activities. We were there early September and as it was near the end of summer, not many people were swimming. But still there was lots of activities like a bicycle race, a stage set up with MC playing interactive games with the audience, buskers on the beach, people cycling and... More

There are several things that can be done close to this beach location. We spent quite some time on the beach and it has good shower and change facilities too. You have several restaurants close to this place and the evenings here are particularly wonderful.

Lots of activities. Enjoyed my stay but was a bit overwhelming with people at times. I grew up near the beaches so this one wasn't very impressive.

Not much water sports activities going on during the last weekend of summer, considering the slapping waves. Even tubing can only be done within 2-3 ft away from the sand, otherwise you'll hear the whistles from the lifeguards. But for those who love tanning, this is an excellent place :) At night is when things can be interesting especially if... More

As with most beaches Summer time is the most anticipated time to visit, this is true with Haeundae along with the host of new h activities from marketing companies giving free makeovers to free concerts taking you to the wee hours of the morning. The iconic scene with countless umbrellas strewn on the sand in the most orderly fashion can... More

This is truly a great beach. Clean and well organised. Before entering the beach you have to buy a ticket for a bed (and inflatable tube and parasol). then you go to one of the ushers and he will point you to a guy with the beds and eventually you'll get a bed. The buying of the ticket was in... More

I spent the day on the beach here by myself. Felt very safe. Beach umbrella and bed and mat very reasonable to hire , Lots going on here, promotions giving free sun tan cream, shampoo etc. Quite an entertaining place I was amused by the elderly Koreans burying themselves on the beach and despite the beach getting crowded most people...
