Cafe-lined streets at Gwangalli Beach in Busan city

You haven’t experienced a summer in Busan until you grab a meal or a cold drink at an outdoor cafe.
The youth melting pot of Gwangalli Beach turns into a mecca of cafes in the summer.

The Suyeong District designated an 800-meter section of seashore road as a “no car” area every Satur-day and Sunday from 10 p.m. to 2 a.m., in large part so restaurants in the area can offer outdoor seating.

After swimming and tanning on the beach in the afternoon, head this way at night to enjoy beer, tea, ice cream and snacks at the cafes. And don’t forget about the amazing sight of Diamond Bridge, which is even more impressive lit up at night.

The outdoor cafes lined up along the shore feature parasols, tables and chairs.
There are also various cultural performances, further adding to the area’s allure.

Performances include jazz, saxophone, and Korean traditional dance. They start at 7 p.m. at Gwangalli’s outdoor performance hall and six other smaller performance halls including Park Hotel, Guess Who and Terrace G.
