Is there a modern cultural heritage of Korea at Songjeong Beach?Songjeong Station is a small and pretty flag station that looks like a station from a movie and can be reached by a short walk from Songjeong Beach through the alley opposite the beach. Built in 1941, the station was designated as a National Registered Cultural Heritage because it retains its 1940s architecture.
Refreshing while walking on the night sea of Songjeong!To Busan locals, Songjeong Beach is a place full of memories, such as playing leisurely in the ocean instead of crowded Haeundae Beach or having fun all night with friends during school days. Let’s walk along the sandy beach when the sun is setting down. In summer, the daytime will be good to swim in the sea under the sun. In autumn, however, it is better to walk on a sandy beach after sunset while listening to the waves blown by the autumn breeze.
Jukdo Park with beautiful pine trees and a pavilionThere is a small park called Jukdo Park at the end of Songjeong Beach. A lot of bamboo trees were the reason it was originally called Jukdo (“bamboo island”), but now Jukdo Park is surrounded by beautiful pine trees. A deck path and lighting make it a good place to walk at night.
