I live and work in Seoul. To me, a weekend getaway to Haeundae Beach in Busan, can be just what I need to relax. The water is pretty cold every time and the beach isn't the most scenic, but this isn't southeast Asia or the Caribbean. Like I said, it is the perfect weekend getaway if living in Korea, but I wouldn't go out of my way to visit this beach.
So many people I talk to warn me how busy it is and that the crowds are unbearable, but that is only if you are in the area with all of the umbrellas. Personally, I don't understand why anyone would want to sit there. My fiancee and I get a spot in front of the Paradise Hotel and Casino and there is plenty of room to stretch out, put down a few beach towels and enjoy your space. Best to visit, but also the busiest, June-September.
