If you want to go to a beach that isn't quite so crowded, this is the best beach in Busan. Songjeong's off the subway line, so it doesn't get quite the same tourist traffic that Haeundae and Gwanganli do. There are a few coffee shops (Holly's, Angel-in-us) with 5 or so floors each, right up on the beach so you can see everything for kilometers around. There's also a beautiful little park on a peninsula nearby with walking trails and a beautiful pagoda.

That being said, there isn't much foreign food in the area (I think I've seen a McDonald's a few blocks away). We ate at a dwegi-gukbap (pork/rice soup) place and loved it. Otherwise, if you're wanting a full meal, be prepared to eat fish.

You'll see a lot of people surfing/learning to surf in the water here even in the winter (which is where I learned too)!

The beach is great for swimming during the summer months, and it is full of places to eat and dine and have coffee with friends all year around. It is very open sea beach, so you feel nature around, and surrounded by buildings where all sercvices are provided. So close to Busan and as good as the city.

We stayed at Hotel Carib, which gave us a perfect view of the many surfers who were out doing their thing every day....I loved it! True, it's maybe not the best place for really swimming, but for a great view and just dipping your toes in the sea, you really can't beat it!

Good hotels, good cafes at the beach and good and inexpensive restaurants in the neigbourhood. The beach is much less crowded than Heaundae and quite pleasant for sleeping or having fun with little kids.
But the rule on guarded beaches in Busan is no swimming beyond buoys that are chest-deep during the high tide and below-the-waist deep during the low tide, so you basically cannot go more than ca 30 meters away from the shore. It's strongly enforced by many lifeguards, you hear their whistles almost permanently. After swimming there and back again and again along the buoys, constantly pestered by the lifeguards, because you're too near to them and kicking the sand in shallow water, you'll get annoyed soon.
It is also prohibited to enter the water after 6 PM. Not to swim, they'll kick you out when you're walking knee-deep along the shore.
And that surely weren't bad weather rules, those rules apply all the time.
If you want to have fun in the sea, just don't go to Busan beaches. They won't let you have it.

Here is a more quiet beach and beautiful as you expect it to be on a weekend getaway.
Sunny day needed to see the beauty of the water and sand tho.

I was there on a Sunday/Monday, and it was not crowded at all.
its a surfer beach but dont expect waves, that's for beginners.

Its still quiet at night, couples and family are coming
Some good seafood restaurants, cheap and great hotel (I recommend Songjeong Marina Resort) nice view of the beach.
The sunrise at the hotel was breathtaking.

If you spend 2 nights there, I can assure you that you would feel disconnected.
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED for at least a night as it is far from everything else but its worth it

I will come back for sure someday !

A beautiful place ruined by weekend beach goers leaving their rubbish. Lovely walks at the temple hill end.

Lovely old ladies selling their home grown greens early in the morning in the street. Nice places to eat near the reserve road off the beach.

We had a great time at the beach. Wonderful for family. You can rent a chair and an umbrella for the day. Tons of coffee shops and places to eat. The crowds were calm and not much of a party place so it was great for a family with children. We will be back.

What I like about the Songjeong Beach is the surfing activity. It is less crowded than the Haeundae Beach. And lots of coffeeshops for relaxation and pasttime.

I can definitely recommend surfing in this beach. For an additional activity, you can hike the small hill at the end of the beach, where you can indulge in light exercises. They have installed light equipment for exercise. There is also a temple at the end of the trail, where you can just sit down and enjoy the cool breeze. A good spot for an afternoon nap.

In June, it was wonderful and quite but I don't recommend going in August if you want to see people camping, cooking and almost living on an overcrowded beach.
Anyway, in June... it was nice. There were plenty of shells and surfers. There is only 1 restaurant for foreigners but it's ok.
