WE took metro line 2 and stopped at Gwangan station. We used exit 3 and walked for about 15 mins to reach the beach in the late afternoon, just before sunset. The beach was okay, not too big and not as famous as Haeundae beach....More

The lighted bridge was spectacular at night. There were restaurants of all sorts alongside the beach. The sandy beach itself was clean and enjoyable.
