Due to its convenient location on the southeast coast of South Korea, Busan is one of the country’s prime seafront cities. In addition to being home to one of the world’s busiest ports, it’s also amazing for relaxing and soaking up the sun thanks to many beautiful beaches on its shores.

Haeundae Beach

One of the most popular beaches in all of South Korea, Haeundae will rock your world with its crystal clear waters and breathtaking skyline views. In addition to offering classic beach activities, such as fishing, swimming, and water sports, it’s also home to many festivals, including a freezing batch competition called Polar Bear Club.

Gwangalli Beach

Another beautiful golden-sand beach with views of Busan’s skyline, Gwangalli is curved in a half-moon shape and covers the length of 1.4 kilometers. It’s best known for being lined with picture-perfect tiki umbrellas and offering the best possible views of Gwangalli Bridge.

Songdo Beach

This man-made beach has been around since 1913, and there are several amazing features that set it apart. One of the most notable is the historic cable car connecting Songdo Beach with Geobuk Island, but its pedestrian overpass is also a sight to behold.
