Gwangalli Beach, Busan Reviews - Write a Review

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

  • Nice beach . Its quite long and alot of cafes located other side of it which has good view of bridge. I recommend visit in the evening

  • A nice place to unwind after a long day experiencing the hustle and bustle of a city life. There are plenty of restaurants nearby with views of the beach as well as the iconic bridge.

  • visited this place after sunset. you can hear different musicians play and sing, and atmosphere is very nice. also have nice bars along the boardwalk. check it out if you are nearby and looking for a place to chill and relax!

  • 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. Animals sell fire works on the beach which are like 2000 wins 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.
