Gyeongpo Beach, Gangneung

4.5
#1 of 8 in Beaches in Gangwon-do
The sandy shore at Gyeongpo Beach extends for 1.8 km (1.1 mi), bordered by a boardwalk, as well as many cafes and restaurants. During peak season (mid July to mid August) the beach buzzes with activity, ranking among the busiest in the country at this time of year. Any other time, you can expect a peaceful visit, and even camp on the sands farther along the beach. Swimmers may be put off by firm waves, but those who like to frolic in the water should have fun. The local delicacy of crab comes recommended. Add Gyeongpo Beach and other attractions to your Gangneung trip itinerary using our Gangneung itinerary planner.

    A good place to rest! The sea is clean, there are hostels, shops, bars, cafes and much more. From the bus station there are direct bus or take a taxi (will be about 7-9 thousand Vonn). On the beach you can rent circles, mattresses, jackets and umbrellas

Where to stay in Gangneung

The Gyeongpo Beach area has a welcome number of seafront hotels, from sprawling resorts to humbler guesthouses and the odd motel.
