If you're in Busan, don't miss this! It's a few minutes walk from the Haeundae Beach. There's no entry free. You can enjoy nature in a city that's as urban as it can be. Visitors can enjoy the vista from the lighthouse and the vieweing...More

You can have an excellent (not too difficult) walk next to the coast line with some amazing views! Lots of benches to rest and enjoy the view.

This is a really worthwhile place to visit in Busan. The scenery is stunning and you will have a multitude of photo opportunities. You will also have the chance to immerse yourself in some local nature whilst still being in the heart of Busan.

The Dongbaekseom Island trail was a highlight of my trip to Busan. I am a nature lover, and this trail gives you great views of the Haeundae area and the surrounding ocean. The trail is not actually that long, but has a few attractions along...More

Yes, as long as you are not tired. I don't encourage walking certain dark areas without crowd/lights if it's at night. If you are just walking certain areas, it's alright to walk at night
