Gwangalli Beach

Busan, South Korea —

Gwangalli Beach (광안리해수욕장) is known among locals and tourists for its fine, white sand. It’s the second most renowned beach next to Haeundae Beach in the dynamic city of Busan.


Danny and I were fortunate enough to book a room at Bridge Hotel, across the famous Gwangan Bridge (광안대교) despite the typhoon-like weather. Some even reported that an earthquake occurred that same night. We didn’t feel it though, maybe because we were too awed looking at the breathtaking view of our window.


The hotel provided us a parking space and necessary toiletries but, no breakfast included. Here are the inclusions:

  • Appliances: tv, aircon, mini refrigerator, hair dryer, computer with internet
  • Bathroom: hot and cold shower, bathtub, towels, bathrobes, disposable toothbrush, toothpaste, shampoo, body wash
  • Skin care, body lotion, hair spray, mosquito killer, comb
  • 2 cans of coffee and 2 bottles of mineral water
  • NO room slippers

Our room was clean and homey. However, I didn’t sleep soundly probably because of the noise from the streets.


In our morning stroll by the seashore, we spotted some surfers basking under the sun and enjoying the strong, huge waves. The weather was way opposite from the previous night.


After we grabbed our brunch at Brunsweek, we enjoyed some more sea breeze before finally checking out. We wished we could stay a bit longer to stroll around the city wherever our feet and wheels will take us but, it was just time to go. Well, we could always come back, right?


Address: 219, Gwanganhaebyeon-ro, Gwangan 2-dong, Suyeong-gu, Busan
