Songdo Beach, Busan

(4.2/5 based on 100+ reviews on the web)
Opened in 1913, Songdo Beach was Korea's first official beach and affords plenty of soft sand and picturesque views of the surrounding pine groves and ocean. Often quiet and peaceful, the beach was frequently damaged by hurricanes, and has recently undergone a five-year overhaul. The now expanded beach has ample room for beach games, inviting water for swimming, and also harbors a walkway allowing you to stroll out over the water. Look out for the statue of a breaching whale out in the middle of the bay (a novel photo opportunity), and consider dining in one of the seafood restaurants in the immediate surrounding area. Put Songdo Beach on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Busan vacation trip planner.

  • The first is infused with the beach and between the cable car up to the beach now, cherry tree, cherry tree, having it all goes under construction seemed to be a great spot overlooking the sea and the views are even more spectacular to the winter leg became even if the herd view Skywalker leg. ..

  • This cosy soulful and beach! We were here in late April. The weather was beautiful, sunny, summer, but has not yet started the beach season. Therefore, there were few people on the beach, and walking on it was a pleasure! In the evening after dark here very relaxed and romantic-you can sit on the beach with a bottle of wine or soju and around almost anyone, only waves are noisy. And what a wonderful pedestrian bridge over the water! It is already a kind of separate attraction. Still on the left hand side of the beach (from the bridge) on the hill there is a nice little park with blooming flowerbeds, benches and beautiful views!
