Haeundae Beach, Busan

4.2
#1 of 157 in Outdoors in South Korea
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. Use our Busan planner to visit Haeundae Beach on your trip to Busan, and learn what else travelers and our writers recommend seeing nearby.

  • Beautiful beach, gives a California feel to it. It is a great place to watch the sunset and walk around the surrounding area for food. Seem people swim as well but might be a bit too cold in the fall. The beaches stretches for quite long as well, hence it is a good walk from one end to another.
  • Great beach but if u are coming just for sight seeing - you may not have much fun unless you are ready to dip yourselves on the sand. Overall - the water was nice and it was breezy. Good to come in sandals and not shoes it u are preparing to go near the water.
  • Relaxed place to hang out in the evening. One of the cleanest and well maintained beaches. Facilities are provided for bathing and swimming. The road to the beach is lined with shops both formal and informal . Also there are numerous restaurants and beer cafes to hang out. The whole area has a cheerful vibe and is a must visit if you are visiting Busan. #LetsGuide
  • If you have choice to be at only one place in Busan at the time of sunset then this place is to be that. Beautiful and clean beach in the city. Very easy to reach there via public transport. One can spend some quality time there with family or alone. Not recommended during the rainy day though as it is mostly empty and you wouldn't find a soul there so not worth visiting in rainy days
  • The day I visited was very cloudy, but it brought lots of fog, literally making the three sky high buildings pierce into the sky. The beach is always full of tourists during summer time. If you like the crowds, that’s the season you should go.
