The place to be this month: Busan’s beaches

It's a great time of year for sandy walks and delicious street food in South Korea

It’s warm but not sweltering, with summer rains yet to arrive: June is an ideal time to visit the beaches of Busan.

Join the crowds at Haeundae and Gwangali, the town’s most popular spots, or seek out quieter locations such as Songjeong Beach. But for fans of Korean food, the best part is taking a break from the sun to try the many barbecue and seafood restaurants that line the streets just off the sand.
