Gyeongpo Beach, Gangneung

4.5
#2 of 8 in Beaches in Gangwon-do
Beach Nature / Park
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.

Where to stay in Gangneung

Gangneung offers a little rest and relaxation for many residents of the capital, so you'll find a good number of established accommodations here. The Gyeongpo Beach area has a welcome number of seafront hotels, from sprawling resorts to humbler guesthouses and the odd motel.
