The view is great and one can enjoy sea there at best. The bridge adds more to the beauty of beach. Lots of shops and restaurants located on the beach road so a good hang out.

there are so many restaurant, coffee shops, pub and bar along the Gwangali beach road. Just sit and relax in one of it when the sun set or at night, and see the colorful light of the busan bridge.

Gwangalli beach area used to be seen as the poorer cousin to Haeundae but recently Gwangalli has really come into its own. The rapid expansion of bars, restaurants and coffee shops offers something for everyone. The water sport centre is a great place to pass away a few hours and Won and usually the beach in Gwangalli doesn’t get a busy and hectic as Haeundae during the summer. There are several festivals that pass through the area and the bridge at night with a few beers in hand and a firework or two in the other gives Gwangalli big thumbs up.

I've been mainly to beaches in Southeast Asia, but since I live in Korea, I have to make do with what this country has. That said, I really liked this beach because of the laid-back atmosphere and recently developed boardwalk. One bar to hit here is Beached Bar run by the New Zealander Craig Morrison.

It's a great place to just chill or spend time with someone. I highly recommend this place.

We spent the night at some hotel on the beach that was reduced half price b/c it was late October and cold. The views were wonderful! Seafood restaurants line the beach (very romantic) and strolling along the beach walk afterwards was very pleasant. At sunrise the next morning we departed and the bridge views were awesome...almost majestic even though it is a man-made structure. I would recommend this location as a nice place if you must spend the night in Busan. The city itself is typical large city...crowded and noisy so we found this outside location more relaxing.
