Haeundae Beach, Busan

4.2
#1 of 157 in Outdoors in South Korea
Backed by downtown's skyline, Haeundae Beach ranks as the one of the country's most popular waterfront spots. Stretching for 2 km (1.2 mi), the beach draws thousands of visitors with its sun, surf, and festivals. Rent an umbrella from one of many booths at the rear of the beach to give yourself some shade while you kick back on the sand. Alternatively, grab an inner tube and don your swimsuit to enjoy splashing and swimming in the sea. Along the beach, you'll find plenty of cultural activities and events--primarily focused on the "folk square," these include traditional games, wrestling, and performances. Use our Busan planner to visit Haeundae Beach on your trip to Busan, and learn what else travelers and our writers recommend seeing nearby.

  • I went to Haeundae on the subway. In the middle of May, the sea was not open yet, but the temperature was high and hot. On the beach, the art of sand is made, and all the works are great.

  • You can definitely find nicer beaches elsewhere, but not many within city limits. The beach is pretty clean and nice overall. Its annoying that they'll try to charge you to shower or even wash your feet off.
  • This beach may not be the best but it is the most accessible and convenient in the whole world. If you have money you can do anything about bathing. You can easily get there by subway or bus. You can order some foods and get them in the beach because most shops provide delivery services. Life guards are watching anytime in July and August. You can swim even in the night for 2weeks in the hottest days.
