Nice view- you can see the lighted Gwangalli Bridge from the beach at night! Many young talent will be singing at the beach so enjoy their singing, sea breeze and the beautiful view of the Bridge. There are many restaurants and cafe along the beach.

Movies on the beach, plenty of shopping opportunities and fireworks on the beach make this a great stop for the evening. The lights on the bridge are cool and many Koreans use this site to propose. Maybe you'll be lucky enough to see it or...More

The street along the beachfront is lined with tons of restaurants and cafes. At night, you can watch the light show on the bridge. People also come at night to light off fireworks.

We had dinner by the beach in the evening - bought kimbap and coffee on the way and ramyeon at the nearest convenient shop. Plenty of people enjoying the nice breeze and the night view.

Just like Haeundae Beach except that this has a smaller field of view. Within walking distance to the nearest subway station. The walk towards the beach is more interesting to me than the beach itself.

Lovely beach, not sure if its man made. Is best visited at night when the bridge is lit up. People also bring their own fireworks which adds to the atmosphere. There are many restaurants and bars with sea views.

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

we arrived to the beach from nampodonga 1003 bus. I do not remember stopping at which got off the bus. drove on the navigator. The cost of 1,700 won. from the bus stop you have to pass between the houses to the beach.
