I don't think this beach is that over the top but it's nice and I can understand why people would come here for vacation. It's less busy than Haeundae. I would recommend getting an accommodation here and relax for a day. It's chilly and windy...More

The beach is very similar to Haeundae Beach, albeit a smaller version of it. The beach seemed to be half (or smaller) the size of Haeundae Beach. It also has the Gwangalli Bridge blocking (or perhaps some may say enhancing) the views of the seas....More

Very nice beach for a stroll, both at night and during day time. Nice view over the Gwangali bridge with spectacular lightning through the night. Probably crowded during summer, but really beautiful in the off season as well.

Hi, I'm not sure in Busan as there is no reef sections that I know of. Most of the beaches will be nice on a calm day, but you wont see many fish. I live on Geoje Island, there is more marine life there. I hear Jeju Island... More
