Gyeongpo Beach, Gangneung

4.5
#1 of 13 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. Make Gyeongpo Beach a part of your Gangneung vacation plans using our Gangneung road trip planner .

  • Went to see the monuments of the Olympic Games during the Olympic Games. From Gangneung station about 20 minutes in the 202 bus? White high rise hotel is a landmark. White sandy beaches, was dotted with artistic objects. Candy nearby dried shop-lined street next to the State and enjoyed in many ways.

  • Now the Sun is warm and the wind can also blow cool sea-watching too many people come to the complex in the summer everything I didn't have when I look at this nice place to go

  • In the area of Kangnung and nearby town of Donghae amazing coastline. Houses a strip of sandy beaches, Emerald sea, separate areas with picturesque rocks. Pine trees along the beach, between the promenade. In General, the perfect place to relax. Gyeongpo beach is located near the Centre of Kangnung. Here you can quickly get on the bus. It is a favorite destination of Sunday rest locals.
