Gwangalli Beach, Busan Reviews

  • You got some beach activities to do here. Also a beach volleyball net. A few cover spot if you want to suntan or lie down. Normally you can start swim around end of june when the temp is around 28. A lot of pub and eating foods that caters both koreans and international tourist. A lot of cafes also that have different concepts nearby. And a lot of hotels popping up around the area

  • I love this place, but the parasols are far too intrusive the last few years. In the summer if there is sunshine and you are catching it, someone will soon come along and put a parasols next to you and demand 5,000 won or you have to move way back near the sidewalk. Not really a public beach anymore. There are really good restaurants all over. Hulk and Black Panther scenes were filmed there. The bridge is beautiful especially at night. Free public WiFi is available, but can mostly only handle short texts, and that not reliably when crowded.

  • As an Australian, you might not be impressed with this beach but as an entertainment venue with pubs, restaurants, cafes, etc along its shore it's pretty great. Worth a casual walk and the bridge enhances rather than hinders the view.

  • very beautiful place, especially at night when the bridge lights up, there are a lot of restaurants and cafes to chill or have a meal while admiring the view. in my opinion, one of the must see sights if you are in busan

  • This beach is one of the popular beaches in busan. It's good to go here in the evening around 6 and stay there for 2 to 3 hours. The busan bridge in night is lit completely and gwangali beach is the best place to see the amazing view. Also around the beach area lots of hotels and other buildings are there which look amazing in night light. Ajummas sell fire works on the beach which are like 2000 wons and lot of people light these at the end of the beach. It's great to watch the fire crackers being lit by so many people. Taking a walk along the beach we can enjoy all these beautiful things mentioned above.
