Came here at night to view the Gwangan bridge lights up. It’s fantastic! A nice place for couples and families to hang out and enjoy the cool Breeze and sight.

If it was not for the set up of something that must have been a festival kind of thing, this beach is the perfect hangout for a lazy day. Busan is well known for their many beaches and this one is one of the better...More

To a chance and went to Gwangalli beach to catch the lights on the bridge. Didn't see any good food and settled for coffee and cakes at Pascucci. The views offered from its 3rd floor was amazing. In the end the bridge was a letdown...More

Very vibrant lights and buzzing with night life. Nice lights from Gwangali bridge. Would be good if we had more time to explore.

Nice beach. Nice scenery. Lots of food outlets along the street. You will also get to see the famous bridge from anywhere along the beach. At night, buskers are almost at every corner and they are really good singers. Also caricature artists.

It's very pleasant place, especially in the evening with the lights on over the bridge. There are plenty of restaurants on the beach side road offering tons of options to choose from. Make sure to be there after it gets dark, to enjoy the views...More

WE stopped here to lie on the beach for a while and then got a beer at one of the many places in the bay. OK for a quick visit, but not particularly memorable. Haeundae Beach around the corner is much better

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

Hi, I'm not sure in Busan as there is no reef sections that I know of. Most of the beaches will be nice on a calm day, but you wont see many fish. I live on Geoje Island, there is more marine life there. I hear Jeju Island... More
