A very nice and clean beach in Busan. Not as crowded as Haeundae and it even has a separate surfer, paddleboard, boogie board area on the far southwest side of the beach. Rentals boards and classes are available.

While it’s not the most famous beach in Busan, it is a must see destination. It’s a wide, sandy beach with very small waves. In the summer months you can enjoy jet ski rentals or go out for a sail. The food choices are mostly...More

Very clean beach. Little umbrellas are present to shelter you from the sun. Water was too cold to enter. There's nothing much else to do.

Not that far, you can take train or buses, off course with taxi as well. Allocate 45mins for travelling between Gwangalli to downtown, and at least 1:!5hrs to the airport. For me, mainly to explore the city downtown area... More
