We came on Christmas Day. Took Bus 1003 from the Gamcheon Culture Village. We came right around sunset and it was pretty crowded with people who had the same idea. It's a nice area to take pictures of the Gwangandaegyo Bridge (Korea's longest suspension bridge).

Stayed in an Airbnb house near the beach and the house offers a beautiful view of the Gwangan Bridge. At night, there’s a light show at the bridge. It’s also a great place to catch sunset and sunrise too!

We visited this place during the fall season. We came by at night and it was beautiful because of the view you get of the Gwangandaegyo Bridge. It's a good place to stroll around. There are also a lots bars and restaurants around.

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
