Came here late in the afternoon & it was still a nice spot to have a relaxing walk. Only issue is, not enough eatery with good views.

You can have an excellent (not too difficult) walk next to the coast line with some amazing views! Lots of benches to rest and enjoy the view.

This is a really worthwhile place to visit in Busan. The scenery is stunning and you will have a multitude of photo opportunities. You will also have the chance to immerse yourself in some local nature whilst still being in the heart of Busan.

The Dongbaekseom Island trail was a highlight of my trip to Busan. I am a nature lover, and this trail gives you great views of the Haeundae area and the surrounding ocean. The trail is not actually that long, but has a few attractions along...More

Access is at the far end of Haeundae Beech near the Westin Chosun hotel. It's a beautiful area to walk along the coast with amazing views. Great for photos.

Very interesting place to visit. Haeundae Beach is very beautiful. Take a walking path to circle the island from the beach. There is a light house on the way to Nurimaru APEC House. Korea hosted APEC leaders meeting in 2005. Its wonderful view from here!

Yes, as long as you are not tired. I don't encourage walking certain dark areas without crowd/lights if it's at night. If you are just walking certain areas, it's alright to walk at night
