Lovely walk of around 1.5 hours. The entire walk is on a boardwalk and the views of the oceans and surrounding hills add to the experience. Tall pine trees and shrubby camellias make it very pleasing as well. The fish and chips cafe at The Bay 101 was really good.

You need to ride train, not just for the experience, but the place is big and you'll be tired. There are long lines for the danubi trains. Waited less than an hour to ride it. But lots of sitting spaces available. Ate ice creams and pastries while waiting for our turn. We had a long day that day, went there... More

When you go there in winter you will feel the fresh air while enjoying fresh vibes from the ocean. You can have a walk from here to Haeundae by the wood walking alley

I walked along Haeundae beach and came to the park, walking along the coastal trail which starts just beside Westin Chosun Busan. It was a nice coastal walk (away from the crazily packed beach) and offers sea view. It was hot as I continue on path, but there are benches around. Good exercise (many locals jogging too!) Nice views and... More

If you are short on time in Busan, and want a long walk with beautiful scenery go to Taejongdae instead. But if you have time, you can visit Dongbaekseom Island, there's a mermaid statue and a boardwalk build near the rocky shoreline with a mermaid statue. You can then walk to some interesting areas nearby later. (Like Haeundae Beach area)

We were staying at an airbnb place along Dongbaek station and we just walked all the way to Dongbaekseom and walked around the area including the APEC nurimaru building. It was an amazing day.

If you're looking for peace and quiet, this is the place. It's close to Haeundae beach. If you're staying somewhere near Haeundae, it's an easy walk. There's no fee on entry. Attractions: there's a statue of a mermaid if one walks along the path by the sea. Then there's a lighthouse and viewing deck. It gives amazing views of the... More

We went there from Haundae beach and there are two ways to go. One taking the road and the other one along the shore. The small light house stand on the end and quite a lot of people visitng the place. It is nothing special but nice for a walk.

Right next to Haeundae beach. It's a beautiful view. Good for a decent walk too. Free entrance. Worth a visit while in Busan.
