After visitng Haeundae Beach, we had no idea where to go. Searched online and see there is a Gwangalli Beach. Visiting a beach after another beach...sounds crazy, but we did it anyways. Took the subway to Gwangan Station and got out at exit 5.
Found there are lockers at Gwangan Station! Good for putting my luggage in if I were to stay in the area.
The walk from exit 5 of Gwangan Station to Gwangalli Beach took us about 10 minutes. It seemed much longer walk to compared to walking to Haeundae Beach. It was probably because it was nearing the end of the day and we were just tired. I don't like this area as much compared to Haeundae. Haeundae seem like a younger area and more vibrant? I don't know how to explain the feeling.
Finally we have arrived at the beach. This beach seem busy with a 6 lane road next to sit. Feels scary to cross the street. We don't know when to cross and when to stop as there wasn't a light.
There are a lot more tall buildings, either commercial or residential next to Gwangalli Beach. For this, I like Haeundae Beach a lot more.
Took a long walk along the beach and the sun was ready to set. It's nice to just chill with friends here. There are plenty of restaurants and bars nearby. Other than that, I don't know what else there are to do.
