Songjeong Beach in Busan is not as well known as Haeundae beach but equally as beautiful with white sand and way less people. Songjeong Beach is located about 15 minutes from Haeundae beach and 1.2km in length. The beach is ideal for families with children as the water is shallower than other beaches in Busan. The beach is able to hold up to 140,000 people but never comes anywhere close to these numbers. During the summer Haeundae beach is packed with people while Songjoeng beach is relatively quiet when compared to Haeundae beach. The area around Songjeong beach is also less commercialised than Haeundae beach. Water sports are popular at Songjeong beach with places available to rent jet skis, surf boards and more. Like most beaches in Korea there are changing rooms and shower rooms available. You can find many people fishing from the docks or taking in the picturesque sunset from the Songiljeong Pavilion.
The beach is open from early July until the end of August.
