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
로비는 2층에 있고요 해운대역에서 도보 10분도 안걸리고, 해운대도 바로 앞에 있어서 접근성도 너무 좋아요! 쾌적한 걸 우선시 하는데 무엇보다 굉장히 쾌적했습니다~ 다음에 또 방문하고 싶어요 more »The lobby is located on the second floor, less than a 10-minute walk from Haeundae Station, and the haeundae is right in front of the hotel, so it's very accessible! I would definitely stay here again.
Dafür, dass es ein Stadtstrand ist, ziemlich gross. Sehr sauber, wie alles in Korea. Wirkt vor allem abends mit den ganzen Bands sehr multikulti. Vielleicht nicht typisch Südkorea, aber sehr lässig... more »For the fact that it is a city beach, quite large. Very clean, like everything in Korea. Especially in the evening with the whole bands very multicultural. Maybe not typical South Korea, but very casual...
Clean and big enough. Easy to access and I would recommend visiting the Dongbaek Park right next to the beach. It seems like you have to rent an umbrella for a day, since tents are not allowed there and showering is also not for free, but there is a small bath to clean your feet. Overall nice to see.
You can definitely find nicer beaches elsewhere, but not many within city limits. The beach is pretty clean and nice overall. Its annoying that they'll try to charge you to shower or even wash your feet off.
