Life in the city can often get unbearably hectic with never-ending work and home responsibilities. And sooner or later we all need a refreshing break from all these worries. That’s where Haeundae beach comes into the picture. With its tranquil blue waters and and fresh ocean breeze it simply washes away all your city-stress so that you feel rejuvenated from within. If that isn’t enough incentive to immediately drive down to this place then here is another reason to visit: Haeundae Beach is ranked as Korea’s most popular beach! Let’s find out why!
Haeundae Beach- what’s the best time to visit this haven of ocean-freshness?
So, what’s the best time of year to visit? I’d say the best time of the year is definitely in spring because you get to enjoy the calmness of the waves and the beach before the summer crowd hits. And when I say crowded I mean like seriously bustling with people because this really is everyone’s favorite spot in Busan when it comes to escaping from the summer heat in peak summer months like June or July.
To get to Haeundae Beach from Seoul take the KTX no. 101 to Busan. Then take bus number 1003 from Busan Station straight to Haeundae beach.
Or if you are already in Busan then simply catch subway line 2 to Haeundae Station and use exit 3 or 5. The beach is just a 5 minute walk from the exits.

It’s not hard to see why Haeundae beach is one of the most popular beaches in Korea. It has one of the loveliest sparkling blue shorelines and is easily accessible by subway or bus so it makes sense that many people come here in spring and summer.
Another great thing about this place is that since it’s so close to the city you can enjoy your whole day at the beach and then get lunch or dinner at one of the nearby restaurants that are just a short walk away.
And really there is no better feeling then letting the fresh, cool ocean breeze caress your face and take all your city-stress away! I think the seagulls agree with me too! Seriously you will instantly feel so much better and get that extra and much needed boost to go back to work in a more positive frame of mind.

And I must say visiting the beach with friends makes the whole trip twice as fun. So if you are wondering where to go on a road trip with friends then I must say that this place needs to be on your bucket list. Because this is the perfect place to picnic with a large group and then have a memorable group meal at one of the famous steakhouses nearby.
The perfect place to make lifelong memories
To wrap up I’d like to say that visiting Haeundae beach is an absolutely lovely way to de-stress and spend some time away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Because here you can feel the warm sand under your feet and enjoy the wind blowing through your hair. And of course mess about in the water with friends! Is there any better way to spend your day off than this? Probably not.
And after all when you leave you will take with you a thousand good memories of the sun and the sea. Really this is the perfect place to make some good memories and have a fun time with friends and family.
