Busan is one of the busiest cities on South Korea’s east coast, and its seafront location transformed it into the country’s prime attraction with beach lovers. If you’re looking for a perfect spot to relax and soak up the sun, these three Busan beaches are the places to be.

Haeundae Beach

Haeundae Beach is hailed as one of the most popular beaches in all of South Korea thanks to its crystal clear waters and amazing skyline views. You can enjoy a wide range of different activities while here, especially if you’re lucky enough to visit it during one of many festivals that take place here, such as the freezing water competition Polar Bear Club.

Songdo Beach

One of Busan’s most popular man-made beaches has been around for over a century, and it’s unique in more ways than one. Its most popular features are the impressive pedestrian overpass and the historic cable car that connects it to Geobuk Island.

Gwangalli Beach

If you love beaches with amazing skyline views, you have to check out this golden-sand, half-moon-shaped beach that covers 1.4 kilometers. You won’t be able to resist its adorable tiki umbrellas, amazing views of Gwangalli Bridge, and many fun activities it has in store.
