Songdo Beach, Busan

(4.2/5 based on 110+ 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.

  • Skywalk was fantastic to go for lunch on a sunny day and the sea is very simple and goes at night, fresh sea breeze and sparkling and beautiful. When you come to Matsushima come also places you want to visit is. I came from Busan in a taxi, taxi was about 2000 yen. We recommend taxi moved Korea cheap taxi, train or bus to unfamiliar.
