Haeundae is a district in the east of Busan that is known as the main tourist destination of the city and home to the nationally renowned Haeundae Beach.

Understand [ edit ]

Haeundae is one of the country's main tourist destinations. It offers Korea's most famous beach, upmarket hotels, the newest shops and luxury apartments. Due to the relatively recent development of the area, it lacks the tradition and history that can be found in the rest of the city.

Many Koreans have happy memories of traveling to Busan to spend a hot summer's day on the packed beach in Haeundae.

Although a little distance away to the east, the Songjeong area with its impressive beach is also part of the Haeundae-gu district.

Get in [ edit ]

Map

By metro [ edit ]

The easiest way into Haeundae from central Busan is via metro line 2. The Haeundae area starts at the 35.169002 129.13154 1 Centum City station , stops by the beach at 35.163739 129.158319 2 Haeundae Station and ends at 35.169984 129.176859 3 Jangsan station . Haeundae Station will bring you closest to the action on the beach ( The train will even play seagull sounds on arrival ).

By bus [ edit ]

There is a direct limousine bus from Gimhae International Airport that will stop near most of the major hotels in the Haeundae area. More expensive than public transport, but more convenient if you have a lot of luggage. 60-90 minutes - ₩8,500. There are also a number of municipal buses that go to Haeundae.

By taxi [ edit ]

A taxi into Haeundae from most parts of Busan will cost between ₩7,000 to ₩25,000.

Busan Station to Haeundae Beach will cost around ₩18,500, and from Gimhae airport about ₩30,000.

By car [ edit ]

By car, you can drive east over the famous (at least for Koreans) Gwangalli bridge in order to get to the Haeundae area. Parking in Haeundae is possible outside during quiet days with various small car parks around, although parking near the beach on a hot summer's day or public holiday will be a challenge.

By train [ edit ]

The mainline train connections through the Haeundae area are now closed . Busan Station is about 40 minutes away from the area and is directly connected by metro line 2.

  • 35.157 129.182 4 Dalmaji Hill , Haeundae ( from Haeundae station (Line 2) it is probably easiest to take a short taxi ride; otherwise you can walk to the eastern end of Haeundae Beach (Mipo) and climb the small hill to arrive at the start of Dalmaji ). This is regarded as Busan's 'romantic road', and climbs a hill overlooking the sea. It is often called the Montmartre of Busan by locals, although the two locations only share the attributes of being romantic and on a hill. The majority of visitors are couples of all ages looking for a romantic experience. Along the way there are many galleries and at the top there are viewing areas, cafes, as well as an amphitheater with a dramatic ocean background.

Stay safe [ edit ]

haeundae tourist information center

Haeundae is, like Busan and South Korea in general, very safe. Refer to the Busan article for details.

There is a Tsunami warning system and signs on the beaches, although the risk of a Tsunami is far less than in nearby Japan . In the unlikely event a tsunami warning is issued for Busan or the South Korean coastline, head for the top of a tall building or higher ground. ( Higher ground is not easily accessible from Haeundae Beach. )

Traffic can be hectic with a lot of tourists unfamiliar with the area trying to find their way around whilst driving. It is worth checking carefully before trying to cross the road even if you think that you have the right of way.

Connect [ edit ]

Along the beachfront there is government provided free Wi-Fi. Most coffee shops around the area also seem to offer.

Top choice in Busan

Haeundae is the country’s most famous beach. During the peak August travel season, umbrellas mushroom across the 2km-long beach while frolickers fill the water with inner tubes rented from booths behind the beach. It’s a fun family outing with 100,000 friends, though the marketing material portraying Haeundae as a world-class resort is bunkum.

Tips for Visitors

To make the most of your visit, it’s crucial to keep a few tips in mind. Haeundae Beach is not just a beautiful sandy expanse and glistening sea; it’s an experience that calls for respect towards its environment and adherence to beach etiquette.

Start by arriving early in the day. The beach can get crowded as the sun rises high, so beat the pack and claim your spot. Don’t forget to apply ample sunscreen, as Busan’s summer sun can be unforgiving. Now, let’s talk about beach etiquette. Stick to designated areas for swimming and refrain from playing loud music that could disturb fellow visitors or wildlife nearby.

Sustainable tourism is another aspect you should consider while at Haeundae Beach. Remember to carry a trash bag and collect all your waste before leaving the place as clean as when you arrived. Not only does this protect the environment, but also enhances the experience for those who come after you.

When hunger strikes, head over to one of the many seafood restaurants lining up along the shore instead of carrying food onto the sand which may attract seagulls or other wildlife species disrupting their natural behavior.

From the soft sand beneath your feet to the rhythmic splashing of the waves, every moment spent here is a testament to the beach’s enchanting allure. Whether you’re a first-time visitor or a returning traveler, Haeundae Beach promises a unique and unforgettable experience that will make you fall in love with Busan all over again.

Haeundae

Haeundae Beach in Busan is famous both in Korea and abroad. Not only is it popular as the largest summer vacation spot, but it also attracts people even in the spring, autumn and winter for its variety of festivals and events, such as the Busan International Film Festival, the International Yacht Race and the Haeundae Sunrise Festival. These festivals help keep Haeundae busy as a popular tourist site all year round.

With Haeundae Beach at its center, Haeundae Special Tourist Zone offers diverse marine leisure activities and fresh seafood. The zone has transformed itself from a typical vacation spot into a destination where one can stay long-term while enjoying leisure activities and cultural events. Today, the zone attracts an increasing number of tourists from around the globe.

The zone not only has natural resources, such as Haeundae Beach, Dongbaek Island, Dalmaji Hill and sea water hot springs, but also a convention center and IT complex. Well-equipped with cultural facilities, including movie sets, arts galleries and aquariums, it is a qualified destination for MICE (Meeting, Incentive tour, Convention and Exhibition) tourists.

The coastal drive course is another way to enjoy Haeundae Beach. Moontan Road, offering a grand night view and various walking trails, including Galmaet-gil lying along the coastline, should not be missed as well.

The skyline at Haeundae underwent a dramatic change with the advent of Centum City. At night, the city skyline that is brilliantly illuminated by the high-end residential/commercial buildings captivates travelers. Inside Centum City are luxury apartments and a grand shopping complex, including a department store and a retail outlet.

Orykudo Islets 오륙도 五六岛

Oryukdo Islets (or Islands) is group of six rocky islets designated as Scenic Site No. 24 by the Cultural Heritage Administration of Korea in October 2007  and a Marine Protected Area (MPA)  by the Ministry of Oceans and Fisheries in December 2003 .

The name ' Oryukdo ' literally means ' five or six islands '. One theory is you can see 5 or 6 islands based on east-west viewing direction, another saying is due to the low-high tide. Regardless, they formed an exquisite natural scenery with almost vertical coastal cliffs, marine plateaus and sea cave. There is also a lighthouse established in 1927 at Deungdaeseom Island , the furthest island from mainland as a guide for ships to Busan Port .

💡The meaning of ' 5-6 islands '  is particularly clear in its official Chinese and Japanese names whereas its official English name, ' Oryukdo ' is based on Korean pronunciation.

💡 About 120,000 years ago, these islets were part of a small peninsula once connected to the mainland but was separated due to wave erosion.

⭐Take a worthy sightseeing day cruise, Haeundae Cruise from Haeundae Mipo Wharf to tour around Oryukdo Islets . The wharf is conveniently located at the left end of Haeundae Beach .

Busan Destinations: Create a Precious Memory With “Panorama Haeundae Service”

The ‘Panorama Haeundae Service’, which takes pictures of landscapes and people at the same time as if they were taken with a drone, is being offered at Haeundae Beach.

The Panorama service can be used by scanning the QR code with a smartphone at the photo zone on the sandy beach in front of the Haeundae Beach Tourist Information Center.

If you press the shoot button, two high-definition cameras installed on the roof of the tourist information center about 100 meters away will take pictures of tourists and Haeundae and send them to you via email or smartphone.

It has the advantage of being able to capture the subject and the foreground at the same time with the optimal angle of view, breaking away from the limitations of the existing method of taking pictures with a smartphone or selfie stick at tourist attractions.

The city plans to produce a reel video that shows how to use the panoramic Haeundae service in conjunction with social network (SNS) influencers and post it on the YouTube and TikTok Visit Busan channels.

In addition, a giveaway quiz event commemorating the service operation will be held from February 8th to February 28th through the Busan City Tourism Portal .

Haeundae-gu, the jurisdiction, will also hold a giveaway event. If you take a picture of Panorama Haeundae Road, post it on your personal Instagram with a hashtag, and write a comment on the Haeundae-gu official Instagram event page, 10 people will be given a prize every month through a lottery.

Busan's Top 8 Natural Hot Springs

 © Cimer Spa

The South Korean port city of Busan has long been associated with its mild climate, beautiful beaches, abundant seafood and its own international film festival, but with some 450 spas—the most of any metropolitan city on the peninsula—it is also a great place to ‘soak up’ the country’s jjimjilbang culture. So, if you’re looking for the perfect place to relax, look to one of Busan’s best spas, listed below.

1. spa land centum city.

Building, Park, Spa, Store

Located in Centum City, the world’s largest department store, Spa Land is Busan’s biggest and most famous spa. Although it was originally intended to be a water park, plans were changed when workers discovered the underground hot springs during the building’s construction. While Spa Land boasts over 20 spas fed by all-natural spring water, its differentiating factor is its vast array of themed rooms that each offer unique healing properties. The SEV Room, for example, emits electrons that are believed to promote health, while visitors can de-stress in the Wave Dream Room by watching undulating waves of water.

2. Hurshimchung

Hurshimchung (also spelled Heosimcheong) is one of the oldest spas in Busan’s Dongnae district and, after several recent renovations, is also one of the largest, with a capacity of 3,000. With a name that literally translates to “cleaning one’s mind”, the facility aims to improve the health of visitors through the curative power of its hot spring baths. And with over 40 different baths to choose from, such as the Longevity Bath, the Cave Bath and the Outdoor Bath, there’s something for everyone.

Bridge, Spa

Hill Spa (formerly Vesta Spa) has over the years become a popular spot with tourists looking for an affordable place to stay during the annual Busan International Film Festival . Of the jjimjilbang’s facilities, the most popular are its open-air spas that offer a panoramic view of Haeundae Beach and Gwangan Bridge. On a clear day, visitors can even see as far as Japan’s Tsushima Island .

8. Haeundae Hot Spring Footbath

Need to rest your tired legs after a long day of sightseeing? There’s no better place to do it than at the public hot spring footbath situated near the Haeundae Beach Tourist Information Center. With seating capacity for up to 80 people, the footbath makes for a great spot to sit back and relax with friends while taking in the beautiful views of Busan’s most popular beach.
