Busan Travel : The morning around Haeundae Beach (해운대해수욕장)

Our Day 2 started early in the morning as the weather forecast is saying that it would be a rainy day. So when we got up in the morning and it was sunny, we decided to quickly head the way over to Haeundae for the morning of exploration around Haeundae Beach (해운대해수욕장).

We started our journey by taking the subway from Busan Station (부산역) to Haeundae with a change from Line 1 (Green Line) to the Line 2 (Orange Line) at the Seomyeong Station. Exiting from Haeundae Station, we walked about 10 minutes before reaching Haeundae Beach (해운대해수욕장).

One of the most famous beach in South Korea, Haeundae Beach (해운대해수욕장) is 1.5km long with white sands that spans over an area of 58,400㎡.

Haeundae is named by a scholar Choi Chi-Won back in the Silla Kingdom (57 BC-AD935). He was walking past Dongbaekseom Island (동백공원) and he was fascinated by it. He left the carved words: ‘Hae Un Dae’ on a stone wall on the island. The sand of this beach is composed of sand that comes from Chuncheon Stream and shells that have been naturally eroded by the wind over time.

Also famous for its various cultural events and festivals that are held throughout the year around Haeundae Beach (해운대해수욕장). There is also a Folk Square where one is able to enjoy traditional Korean games such as neolttwigi (seesaw jumping, Korean wrestling and many more.
