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
地下鉄で海雲台に行って来ました。５月中旬で、まだ海開きは行っていませんでしたが、気温も高く暑かったです。 ビーチでは、砂のアートが造られていて、どれも大きくスゴイ作品ばかりです。 more »I went to Haeundae on the subway. In the middle of May, the sea was not open yet, but the temperature was high and hot. On the beach, the art of sand is made, and all the works are great.
Easy to walk to the beach from Haueundae Station on Line 2. Long and clean beach with no end to the ocean. Lots of restaurant around this area and they close very late. You can even see people playing... more »
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.
