Gwang·an

Gwang·an information

Lonely Planet review

Among the city's seven beaches, Gwang·an is the best option for access and quality (the other beaches are Dadaepo, Songdo, Songjeong, Ilgwang, Imnang and Pebble Beach). Although the ugly wall of commercial development behind the beach diminishes the daytime experience, Gwang·an really shines at night. The multicoloured light show illuminating the bridge is grand. The shortest route to Gwang·an is Line 2 to Geumnyeonsan station, Exit 3. Rotate 180 degrees at street level and turn right at the corner; the beach is five minutes down the road.
