Becoming increasingly popular in recent years, this area is great day or night, with handfuls of trendy restaurants, cafes and bars to choose from on the street along the beach. There are events throughout the summer and there is always something happening on the weekend. It's not a bad place for swimming, and it is a popular place for playing frisbee and beach volleyball.

Great place to try sashimi with beach view. And no shortage of entertainment all night long!

Stayed at a beachfront office-tel found on airbnb, 4 days 3 nights. Easy access to Haeundae, Shinsegae, and downtown without being "in the middle of it all". Wonderful swimming. Never wanted to leave.

Gwangan Beach (Gwangallli Beach) is more relaxing than Heaundae Beach, which is more well known and more popular for locals and visitors. There are lots of hoe (raw fish) restaurants here.

The nicer of the Busan beaches, Gwangalli Beach offers plenty of sand, surf, and beach side restaurants for evenings out. There is a "strip" that is fun for walking or grabbing some beer with friends.

Can walk at night along the beach and see the diamond bridge. Many food places. Walked to the seafood restaurants near the fish market. Excellent meal!

Famous for its hoe (sashimi) restaurants, colorful bridge and bouncing nightlife, Gwangalli Beach is the spot to head to in Busan when the sun goes down. Fronted by a long crescent of sand, the strand road here is a lovely place to have an evening wander and take in the life of the city.

Smaller than Haeundae beach in Busan, Korea but good enough to relax and enjoy the beach. Many restaurants and bars along side th beach.

Gwangalli Beach is another one of Busan's gorgeous beaches. Again I was here during the winter so did not experience the crowds that i heard it can get during the summer. On Gwangalli beach is an amazing view of Gwangalli bridge. Definitely a site to see at night.
