#1 of 157 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.

  • Beautiful beach, gives a California feel to it. It is a great place to watch the sunset and walk around the surrounding area for food. Seem people swim as well but might be a bit too cold in the fall. The beaches stretches for quite long as well, hence it is a good walk from one end to another.
  • Great beach but if u are coming just for sight seeing - you may not have much fun unless you are ready to dip yourselves on the sand. Overall - the water was nice and it was breezy. Good to come in sandals and not shoes it u are preparing to go near the water.
