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

Long and beautiful. The view from this site is great. You can see the outstanding and stunning Gwangandaegyo Bridge along the beach. Visiting the beach in the late afternoon until night is recommended.
