  • Beautiful beach with many activities and events, restaurants and fresh fish markets. There is an awesome view of the newly named Diamond bridge.

  • Had an awesome night time stroll along this beach with my husband. A perfect night with great views of the bridge in all its glory!

  • Nice beach with a variety of restaurants and nightlife. Scenes from the Black Psnther movie were filmed here. Nice view of the bridge. Not a great beach for swimming

  • This place has one advantage over Haeunde. Fireworks are not prohibited. And I like that. Also at night you can have beautiful view on bridge and take good pictures.

  • beautiful place, lots of good coffee shops and restaurants with a fantastic view of Diamond bridge.
