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.

Haeundae Beach reviews
I only ran on the beach. It was pretty busy as could be expected. The beach is nice and well maintained. It is also near plenty of eateries, both local and westernized. more »
At 7 Am, I was woken up and saw this beautiful sunrise. As I stayed in the room opposite side, I could wake up and walk alongside batch road. more »
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 place to chill and swim during the day then come back at night for drinks and fireworks
