Set at one end of the Haeundae beach, Dongbaek Island does not need a boat to get there. It is now joined to the mainland. It is closed to motorised traffic, cycles and skates. It is a delightful walk - if you are not in a hurry. The island is a small hill with a park. There is a walkway built right around it.

There are a number of view points along the way to stop and take in the landscape. The most spectacular being in the evening, when the Gwangali bridge is lit up.The park is worth exploring - i did not have the time. However I walked around the island on 2 occasions, and would do it again.

There are toilets. There are benches along the way to rest and relax. However, there are no eating places/water to drink. It is more popular with local residents than tourists, who come there for a relaxing stroll.

It is a vantage point for the Busan International Fireworks Festival held on Gwangali Beach, because you can see the fire works and the Bridge together - magnificient sight.

This is a great little walk - it is not difficult and takes about 30 min if not too many stops. Bring water if it is hot as you cant buy any along the way.

I took a (mild) walk along the Dongbaek island esplanade and I was blown away by the view/scenery! There are several places where you can stop and rest and just take in the view and the fresh air while sitting down or standing. At the end of esplanade you'll come up on Nurimaru APEC house with Gwangalli beach and Gwangan Bridge, also know as Diamond Bridge, in the background. It's a postcard perfect view!
