Gyeongpo Beach, Gangneung

4.6
#1 of 31 in Outdoors in Gangwon-do
The sandy shore at Gyeongpo Beach extends for 1.8 km (1.1 mi), bordered by a boardwalk, as well as many cafes and restaurants. During peak season (mid July to mid August) the beach buzzes with activity, ranking among the busiest in the country at this time of year. Any other time, you can expect a peaceful visit, and even camp on the sands farther along the beach. Swimmers may be put off by firm waves, but those who like to frolic in the water should have fun. The local delicacy of crab comes recommended. Make Gyeongpo Beach a part of your Gangneung vacation plans using our Gangneung road trip planner.
