A beach view with the Diamond bridge.
Apr 2021
If you are ever in Busan make sure to stop by this laid-back beach!
Since it's too cold to go for a swim.
You can go for a walk or hang out at a cafe with a view of the beach.
At night the Gwangandaegyo or Diamond Bridge displays a light show.

Tip:
You have to wear a mask at all times, no lighting fireworks, and no feeding birds!

Beautiful night views

Gwangalli is a beautiful beach to visit at night when the bridge across the water is lit up. There are plenty of restaurants and bars in the area but beware of drunk people.

Nice place to chill~

Beautiful view! I think the view will be worth it if you are there at sunset! The beach is pretty quiet due to Corona. Along the beach there's a lot of restaurants & cafe for you to sit and look at the view.

Nice place to hang out
May 2020 • Couples
With the overcast weather the usually popular Gwangalli Beach area looked deserted. However, with so many good restaurants and bars in its vicinity (with many offering ocean views) it’s always a good spot to hang out.

Smaller than Haeudae Beach but still a nice place to visit.....
Nov 2019 • Family
We came here 2 years ago. It was still a nice place for a 2nd visit & we came again since we have time. It is not so crowded or touristy as Haeudae Beach.

It has its usual dining, hotels, motels, etc around the beach. The bridge looks nice at night.

Great place to chill
Sep 2019
Gwangalli is probably one of my favorite places in Busan. It's a smaller place than the nearby Haeundae Beach and less crowded. (except during the firework festival)

It's nice place to go for a walk, jog. The scenery at night is pretty nice; there are decent restaurants and bars along the beach.

I recommend checking this place out

Nice beach to relax and chill!!
Aug 2019
Came here in the summer of August!! It was hot, as it is summer time in Korea. You can rent a mat and umbrella for 5,000 and up. You can also buy chicken from here; some vendors would walk around carrying chicken and food. It's a nice beach to relax; it's less crowded compared to Haeundae beach.

Great place to spend the evening
Apr 2019 • Couples
The beach comes alive in the evening with a lot of people playing on the beach. A live band was performing on the beach and it was a nice setting with the fully lit Gwangandaegyo bridge in the background. Some youngsters were setting off fireworks. We felt very safe here even late evening as we saw a lot of families and couples around. There are lot of restaurants in the area

Great in all weathers!

We stayed on a hotel overlooking the beach and we loved the beach itself and the whole area. Lots of restaurants and bars to choose from and a wonderful beach to stroll along- plus the convenience of the compressed air pumps to clean the sand off your shoes afterwards.
