This is the most popular tourist area in Busan. The beach itself has soft deep sand. The ocean has strong surf and strong under tow in certain areas. The Main Street is comprised of hotels, restaurants, cafes. It is full of tourists and really loud. I would not want to stay at a hotel on the main promenade. Overall this is a fun area and lots to see and do

Okay place to visit, it is full of people. I saw people openly making their drinks on beach. However, windy and fresh air, good for an one time visit. The place has very good restaurants, must visit for food lovers.

Haeundae and Gwangalli beach are popular with tourists from Asia and Western countries. Stretching between Westin at the border or bridge to Gwangalli and Ananti-Mipo fish market, Haeundae is on the edge of both traditional Busan and the modern (think Busan X Sky). Besides typhoons like Mami and Hinnamnor, these were solely spared and helped sustain the entire nation with U.N.-sourced supplies and food during the Korean War. Therefore, I will give food-info before visiting the surrounding traditional markets, between Benikea Haeundae across from Paradise/ Grand Josun hotel (Gunam-ro 41 beon-Gil to Gungdong 1-ro). First of all, Koreans have never eaten strange mammals like cats or rodents, so do not worry (and after Chinese medicine, a certain dog species’ organ was seen only to treat men’s prostrates). Second, Koreans were historically vegetarians/vegans, and do not consume large sea mammals like Japanese do, e.g., dolphins and whales defended by the Sea Shepherd. Until recently, seafood and vegetables grew to be staples with eggs during the late Joseon era (and on Jeju later pigs), as well. (Only after the U.S. pushed mad cow disease-tainted beef on Korea, which was discarded wholesale, in protest Koreans began replacing the meat often with pork.) Check out bbq meat or grill houses with ease, and unlike in North America, hotels are popular dining places with locals for the best views and meals. Gwangalli is closer, but both are about a half hour by subway train from Busan/KTX station. (Listen for the seagull cries with English subway overhead announcement.) After a twelve minute walk from the station—exit 5 being closest to buses, follow the boardwalk to catch a cruise behind Mipo-side water breaker-barrier East of Busan X. Or, take a short train ride from there to Yonggungsa Temple on the ocean. It’s a view you can’t beat!

Haeundae beach in summer is usually busy start from afternoon until early evening, during the day it’s too hot and humid here. The beach is connecting with apec house and apec park, so one can walk along the coastal road and end up in this beach, which is a nice walk with spectacular view of the sea and city.

This is a popular beach spot for tourists. There are many hotels in this vicinity and offer great accessibility and convenience for beach goers. Lots of eating options and shopping available. It’s also near Centrum city mall. If you’re into beach, you may want to check out Gwanglli beach instead which is nearby.

We went during a cloudy and windy day hence not the ideal conditions . However, on a warm and sunny day , the beach will certainly be very inviting with a large expanse of beach of 400m length and depth of 100m . Good place to soak up during the summer time .

Barefoot, sand feels nice. This is a small beach. There are many men with looks that pry on girls and women who come here. Too commercial.

There are a few beaches in Busan. I went to the three main ones and I liked this the most. Having said this, everyone is different. All beaches were clean and well kept. I liked this due to the atmosphere. Busy with lots to do. For those looking for a more peaceful beach then another option may be better as you might find this loud and touristy. The sand and setting were nice. Lovely to take a walk. Don't think beaches like Bali or Cancun. This was nice and simple.

I have heard a lot of good reviews about this beach. And of course I had a dream to go there and experience it by myself.
When I saw the waves, flying birds above me and families with happy kids around, I realized that Haeundae beach is really amazing for afternoon playings with kids and families and slow evening walks with friends or alone along the sea. Haeundae is a MUST for every visiter in Busan. You won't regret.
