Gwangalli Beach

Operating Hours: All day

Entrance Fee: Free

Gwangalli Beach is the secondary beach of Busan.


It’s most noticeable difference from Heaundae is the Gwangan Bridge that adds to the view of the horizon – especially during the night when it’s lit with a lot of colors.

However, just like Haeundae, adjacent to it are hotels, shops, bars, and other establishments that cater to the young. There were a lot of people on the beach that day since it was almost the end of the working and school day.


One thing I also like about Korea is the abundance of places where people can hang out without having to spend a lot of money. The government invested in improving this service by providing people with parks and the like.

Imagine being able to chill out by the beach after a long hard day at work. Wouldn’t that be heaven?


And just beyond the beach are the establishments. Although it’s a good way to infuse nature and progress, there’s still this strong inkling towards a pure beach experience – no buildings, no great amenities, just pure nature.

Next time I visit, I might see people take a dip?
