Songdo Beach dates back to 1913 and was supposedly a man-made beach. The entire area has developed into quite a tourist destination and was worth exploring for several days. This pristine beach abutting the Sea of Japan
purportedly was the first public beach in Korea. We also enjoyed the nearby Songdo Skywalks, Cable Car and Suspension Bridge.

If sightseeing is their thing, then the best place to go is the coast of Songdo, Busan.

I arrived at my accommodation by the sea around sunset. The view of the sea as soon as I arrived was very beautiful.

I felt like I was healed by the scenery itself.

The next day, I rode a sea cable car with a glass floor, which was the best to see the beautiful sea view.

And I went to a cafe with a view of the sea and had a cool and fun time.

In the evening, I went for a walk on the sandy beach. It was nice to take a leisurely walk because there were a few people. And it was summer but the cool breeze made me feel good.

It was a trip that made me feel relaxed because of my school life.

We love to beach across our hotel. Very large and we have the beach just for us before a guess a future busy summer. Great walk around the seafront with many bars and cafe. Amazing bridge above the water. Great park, go to the mini local fishermen harbor at the end and they have nice fish. Many open spaces, mini mart for last minutes ice cream, and a few. Was perfect for us to relax. Take the cable car. Enjoy the boat ride. Very cool beach for the week end.

It is sobering that in the 1980s, Typhoon Thelma wiped out the beach sands at Songdo Beach. Twenty plus years later, the beach has a reasonable amount of sand even if hardly up to Philippines white sand standards.

We travelled by bus from Nampo metro station, taking 13 minutes on a route 7 bus.

The beach had temporary showers nicely done, It was an easy 10 minute walk to the cable car and there was a biardwalk highlighting local rock pools.

Heard about the reopening of the Songdo marina cable car. It's called Busan Air Cruise now. So want to give it a try. Went to ticketing and found out it is very foreigner unfriendly. The staffs do not understand English. One of the female staff didn't even talked to me and just stuffed me with a pamphlet instead.

I was sent to a ticketing machine since I said I'll pay by credit card. The machine is Korean only. My daughter had to use Google translate in order to understand how to use the machine. So if you can't read Korean, I suggest you to wait in the incredibly long line for the sales window. Also with using the machine you wouldn't know of the wait time for the car. We found out there's an over 2 hours wait for the crystal car at the boarding line. Too late already, we already purchased the tickets. Ended up having to wait.

We visited this beach during the week, so there were not many people on the beach- this was great. Some interesting sculptures in the water and a beautiful walkway out into the ocean make it a worthwhile stop on your visit to Busan. Try the fried chicken at Mom’s Touch on the beachfront!

Songdo beach is more popular to residents than other touristic beaches of Busan such as Haundae or Gwanganli. If you prefer a comparatively quiet beach, Songdo or Dadaepo is recommended in Busan.
- There are many groups of families.

- The trail along the cliff starting from Songdo Beach is good to walk. There are some nice place on rocks to rest or get fishing.
- Martime Cable Car above sea is available.

Very nice place, the 365 meter long skywalk is amazing. It was Sunday and very crowded there. Come and take a walk on the sea, to see the beautiful scenery or you may spend a day and relax on the beach too,

Unlike the big Haeundae and Gwangalli beaches, this one is much smaller and quieter.
It's set in a nice small bay and you can have a whole view from the cable car.
The area seems a desirable neighborhood as there're many high rise apartment buildings and many others still being built.

Songdo is a small but nice beach. It's touted as the first official beach in South Korea. Haeundae and Gwangalli are definitely bigger, but Songdo had nice sand and looked very clean. The skywalk is nice, but nothing too crazy. The statues and stories make it nice. If you go during non-popular times, its a nice little place to hang out. Didn't have time to swim or take the cable car due to long lines, but a nice little nook with some extra history. Definitely more windy than the other 2 beaches, though. The murals were beautiful and worth checking out. Waves looked much calmer than Haeundae, so might be better for swimming. Overall not bad.
