Busan Trail: Haeundae Beach (해운대해수욕장)

After a very satisfying lunch at Jagalchi Market (자갈치시장), we headed over to Haeundae Beach (해운대해수욕장).

To get there, just take the Busan subway to Haeundae Station (line 2) and get out from either Exit 3 or 5 and just walk straight. You will see signs along the way that will lead you to the beach. It is a very lively area so no worries about getting lost.

The actual beach itself was kinda like “ok, it’s just a beach” to me. Nothing exceptionally special about it except that it was very big.

It is the Haeundae Traditional Market (해운대시장; Gunam-ro, 41th-gil/구남로 41번길) one block from the beach that is more interesting.

There are shops there that sells groceries and meat and stuff. There is a lot of food shops there too. They have some seafood restaurants and I saw this at one of the shops:

It was pretty horrifying and fascinating how they skinned the eel and put the still squirming body straight onto the fire. Like wow.

We didn’t stay for long in the Haeundae area. Nothing much of interest to us really. It was still pretty cold so it was definitely a wrong season to go to the beach anyway.

We left for Centum City after eating our fill along the Haeundae Traditional Market street.
