Haeundae Beach, Busan

4.2
#1 of 175 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.

  • It is a beautiful beach which can be called the symbol of the sea cloud stand. Good for a walk in the morning and evening. Summer is very crowded, so we recommend autumn.

  • It's really a beautiful beach with the white sand. It's quite near Busan Aquarium, we went to here in Spring but if in Summer, it will be really crowded. Nice!
  • Really nice beach. It was very clean and had a lot of people. It was easy to get there and walk alongside the beach was cool. There was a little market going on. Please note that it's not legal to go swimming in the sea during all year. There are certain periods of time that you can do so. Also, the water is freezing ! Very #instagramable place
