  • Gwangalli Beach, or Gwangan Beach is a beach in Busan located on the bay overlooking Gwangan Bridge. This is the site for sailing events in the 1988 Summer Olympics. They say that this beach isn’t as popular as Haeundae, but I can’t tell the difference. There were still loads of people here. In fact, I find Gwangalli a much more happening spot as the beach is surrounded by waterfront cafes and restaurants. At the edge of the waterfront on Gwangalli, you'll find the common sight of fishing rods casting their bait into the sea. Rock formations just off the Gwangalli waterfront. Look closely at the crashing waves and you might just catch a small statue of one man standing against the sea. Never yielding, unmovable, it stands against the current, against the crashing waves, against the winds, his sight fixed upon the horizon.

  • Huge beach, lots of space. I think we are here when swimming isn't allowed, but it is allowed at some point during the year. Wonderful view of the bridge, and at night it lights up with a very nice light show. Even the strip of the beach lights up at night so it's a really nice sight. Plenty of local and western-chain restaurants and cafes around so you can get anything that you like. There is even compressed air to blow off all that pesky sand from the beach when you're all done!

  • My favorite place in Busan. Great beach all year round with great views. Especially great in summer when swimming is allowed. Many great restaurants and bars along the beach to enjoy while looking out over the amazing views offered .

  • The beach itself is typical of Korea and not so great. The surrounding area is really nice though. Its full of great bar's, restaurants, and entertainment. This beach often has entertainers a festival's.
