Songdo Beach, Busan

4.2
#3 of 13 in Outdoors in Busan
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. Take a look at our Busan trip planner to schedule your visit to Songdo Beach and learn about what else to see and do during your holiday.

  • There's a bus in the Nanpu station, and it's going to be very fast, the trans-sea cables is very high, but the scenery is very strong, but in the winter, walking on the air trail, the wind is very strong!

  • Loved the beach and the walkway. Crystal clear waters with abundant sea vegetation. There were buskers which made the atmosphere festive.  more »
