Gwangalli Beach & Millak Waterside Park

Nighttime is when this beach truly shines: it starts with the spectacular sunset, followed by an unobstructed view of the nightly Gwangan Bridge light show (8, 9 and 10pm Fri-Sat and 8 & 10pm Sun-Thu), which is sometimes complemented with firework displays. There are street performances along the promenade and dozens of inviting eateries. Unsurprisingly, the beach tends to get quite busy after sundown and is especially popular with local youths who particularly favour the area. If you feel up to a genuine local nightlife experience, pick up some picnic food (sashimi and soju are usually the local combinations of choice) and join the crowds at Millak Waterfront Park.

Bars & Nightlife

Gwangalli is the area to be once the sun has set, Seomyeon and Haeundae also remain fairly busy. It-places shift from one year to the next, although HQ Gwangan seems to have been able to maintain its patron base through the years. Galmegi Brewing and Gorilla Brewing are favourites for craft beer.
