Busan, South Korea: Dongbaekseom Coastal Hike

Two of the many things I miss about living in Haeundae, Busan are the weather (the transition of summer to autumn so it was my kind of cold. Around 16 degrees Celsius on most days and becomes 10 degrees on most nights. Tamang sweater weather lang) and the proximity of the hiking places and the beach. You know what I mean. :))) I'd love to become a more active person but it's just not possible from where I live here in the Philippines. Hahaha! 'Yung sa Busan kasi, walking distance lang 'yung bundok at beach. Haaaaaaay!!! <3

It doesn't always have to be mountain hike, just going on coastal walks like this in Dongbaekseom is enough and it doesn't need a one full day to finish. 


If you're from Haeundae, you have to walk towards The Westin Chosun because the trailhead of this easy 1 to 2 hrs coastal hike is there. 

Once you see the mermaid statue on the above picture and the mini suspension bridge on the bottom picture, you're on the right track. 

Went there on a hot weekday so there weren't a lot of people walking here but it gets pretty crowded especially during weekend afternoon. 

Just walk, and walk, and walk.

It's a beautiful and easy coastal walk especially if you're not used to doing this kind of activity. Igidae Coastal Walk is still the best for me but that was a bit difficult. 

At the end, you'll see this white light house and the APEC building. You can continue to walk around the park and the other attractions within the area or you may continue walking.

From this area, the nearest subway line should be Dongbaek Station.
