Gyeongpo Beach, Gangneung

(4.5/5 based on 100+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Make sure you visit this beach while in GangNeung Area. The white sandy beach along with clear blue water is something you just can't forget.  more »
  • Good place to work, a special inspiration, but near lake promenade in Herne birthplace gyeongpo Henan preaching Sir is a great place to walk around, such as the turret.
