“Gwangalli style”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2013

This is a most surprising and attractive part of South Korea, a city beach with magnificent bridge, and a fabulous promenade with lots of bars, cafés, restaurants all looking out at the sea view - a definite must, by day and especially by night...

“Fireworks at Gwangalli”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 19, 2012

Similar to Haeundae Beach, there is a row of shops opposite the beach, with many restaurants and cafes, targetting foreign tourists. Here, you can also see the beautiful Busan city night skyline.

You'll see many foreign tourists here - taking walks, eating street food. Here, you can buy fireworks - small ones, which you can light on the beach.

“Gwang-an-ri, Busan”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 5, 2012

This is Gwang-an-ri. It is one of the famous beaches in Busan besides Busan Haeundae. Famous attractions are Kwanganli beach, a city gallery, and annual world firework festival. There are not many people because it’s winter, but you can enjoy beautiful scenery through blue sea and Kwangan Bridge. You can get more information through pictures of fireworks festival, and other view I attached.

“Perfect at Night”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 5, 2012

There is no better place in Busan to grab a coffee or a bit to eat during the evening hours than Gwangalli Beach. I had an amazing time with my wife enjoying drinks on a balcony just over the beach. The city and bridge lights of Busan look fantastic. Walking the beach at night also seems very popular here.

The setting is really a highlight, I still have fond memories of that last night in Busan. Just a reminder, I am not reviewing the beach as a sunbathing or swimming attraction. The fireworks were also nice.
