Nurimaru and Dongbaek Island in Busan

Haps Magazine Korea

At one time this “island” was completely separated from the mainland by the surrounding sea. Now one end of the Dongbaekdo Island, Busan is attached to the mainland area and is a short walk from Haeundae beach. It is a popular destination for its trekking and hiking trails.

There is a historic lighthouse as well as a 2.5 m statue of a mermaid. In clear weather, you can see the Japanese Island, Tsushima.

The famed APEC building was the location for a meeting of world leaders several years ago and is still open for tours.
