Busan City announces the dates for all seven public beaches
Busan City has announced the dates of its summer operations for the seven public beaches during the summer in Busan.
This year sees all the beaches closing at the end of August, as last year Songdo and Gwangalli beaches were extended until September 10th.
In Haeundae and Songjeong beaches, there is a decrease in the number of parasols once again, opening up even more swaths of open sand.
Haeundae-gu has decided to increase the area without parasols by 70m and 150m respectively at Haeundae and Songjeong beaches.
The beaches will also have more cultural activities once again — busking performances, beach radio, a book cafe, hot air balloons and Haeundae beach cinema have been announced by the district.
Haeundae Beach has also recently been recognized as an “Open Tourist Spot” which will offer easy accessibility where all visitors, including the disabled, the elderly, and the young can freely access and engage in tourism activities without any obstructions or limitations.
Opening dates of public beaches in Busan this summer:
Haeundae Beach: June 1 – August 31
Songjeong Beach: June 1 – August 31
Songdo Beach: June 1 – August 31
Gwangalli Beach: July 1 – August 31
Dadaepo Beach: July 1 – August 31
Ilgwang Beach: July 1 – August 31
Imrang Beach: July 1 – August 31
Songdo Beach, whose popularity last year soared after the installation of Songdo Marine Cable Car and its new Skywalk, will be equipped with a seawater pool for infants.
There will also be an opportunity to experience kayaking and various marine sports in Gwangalli in addition to other activities planned over the summer.
Last year, Dadaepo Beach, which was selected as the best bathing beach in the whole country, has strengthened its facilities as well to add more comfort to sunbathers.
Littering, smoking, fireworks, and commercial activities without a license on or near the beach areas are prohibited by law and those found to be in violation of the law will be fined.
Various cultural and art events, which have been taking place to revitalize the beaches will be extended through the summer months.
