Gwangalli Beach, Busan Reviews

  • The horizon encountered disturbs my agony, only its serenity calms the sorrow I was carrying, temporarily proves me that I can actually be this calm with the fading images of you. Still the warmth left in the centre of my heart compensates the icy cold sand and ruthlessly wild wild wind-blow. no interruptions, no attracts, no distracts, but its presence that covers every absence. Reminds me of Nice beach in France, but different. Had a great lonesome Christmas. Happy New year. to you.

  • Good beach to take a walk, not to swim or bath in Busan city because of good location. There are many cafes and restaurants. The night is better time to visit it.

  • A beautiful beach and closed to lot of anmenities. Hotels, restaurants and shopping areas. A great place not only for tourists but for locals as well. No doubt great for summer, but winter is too cold to be there.

  • Best beach in Busan. Because of the good food places available. Beach is clean

  • It is one of the most beautiful urbanized beaches in South Korea. It provides one of the best night sighting. It is a very romantic beach located in the second largest city of South Korea. Also it is very safe to walk at night, too.
