Great view of the Gwangan bridge at night. Lots of eateries along the main road next to the beach: this area seemed to me especially popular with the young Koreans. Very pleasant walk in the evening.

Very busy beach with a lot of restaurants and bars . Fine sand. Some nice artwork along the promenade and view of Gwangan bridge. Close to the center of Busan.

Smaller than other beaches in Busan, reachable from Gwangan metro station. A lot of people go there in the evening to view the bridge lit in front of the beach. Shops, cafes, festivals. There was no laser show when I went.

If you plan to visit Gwangalli Beach, I highly recommend to use public transportation. Do not take your car. IT's really hard to find a parking spot around the beach. It's also very crowded and boisterous place, but walking along the beach was an quite...More

We stayed at the Hound Hotel that is on the beach, it's just a 20 second walk around the corner from the hotel. It is a nice stretch that goes on for miles. You can walk or bike the whole thing. There are shops, cafes,...More

Of course, strolling along a beach in February might not the typical time. Anyway, we liked the beach and the surrounding multiple choice of restaurants, coffee shops, pubs and shops. We will be back im summer!

There are so many restaurants around the area. Walk around to discover places. During the Spring, visit the Cherry Blossom Street several blocks away.

Not that far, you can take train or buses, off course with taxi as well. Allocate 45mins for travelling between Gwangalli to downtown, and at least 1:!5hrs to the airport. For me, mainly to explore the city downtown area... More
