Haeundae Beach, Busan

(4.2/5 based on 1,900+ reviews on the web)
Backed by downtown's skyline, Haeundae Beach ranks as the one of the country's most popular waterfront spots. Stretching for 2 km (1.2 mi), the beach draws thousands of visitors with its sun, surf, and festivals. Rent an umbrella from one of many booths at the rear of the beach to give yourself some shade while you kick back on the sand. Alternatively, grab an inner tube and don your swimsuit to enjoy splashing and swimming in the sea. Along the beach, you'll find plenty of cultural activities and events--primarily focused on the "folk square," these include traditional games, wrestling, and performances. Make Haeundae Beach part of your personalized Busan itinerary using our Busan trip itinerary builder.

  • This wonderful beach become the most visited place and very swarm during summer in Korea. Some bird view picture revealed that almost entire of the beach inhibited by thousands umbrella and people enjoying summer kick in Busan.
  • Nice beach when sunny. However, no more beach lies and parasols in warm september. The life guards patrol the beach and keep visitors from swimming. Loud annoying voice informing visitors every 10 minutes.
  • It's the most popular beach in Busan. There's an aquarium, hotels, and restaurants just beyond the boardwalk. The only downside during the summer can be the ridiculous amount of parasols and the life guards who take their jobs very seriously. Most days, you can't go any father in the water than past your waist. Other than that, there's a great time. The best area to have a good time is on the far left side by Pale de cz. ;)
  • The beach itself is beautiful but way too crowded on high season plus the life gurds won't let u swim more than 5 meters away from the shore which was extremely annoying.
  • Great beach for relaxing and having a few drinks. Not a good beach to swim at though! Freezing water and you can only go in waste deep.
