The Nakdonggang River cuts through the Yeongnam region. The sandy area right before the river meets with the South Sea, forming a vast delta triangle of rich soil. Downstream the Nakdonggang River is home to numerous migratory birds enjoying rich food and clear water. Visit the Amisan Observatory to view a fantastic landscape where the river meets the ocean.
Downstream the long and winding Nakdonggang River, Saha-gu and Gangseo-gu, Busan is where the river reaches the ocean. In the area surrounding Saha-gu’s Dadaepo Beach, you can find the Amisan Observatory, where you can see the unique sandy islands downstream the Nakdonggang River along with the low-flying kites against the tranquil backdrop of sunrise and sunset.
Before the view, explore the permanent exhibition hall on the second floor of the observatory, which answers all questions regarding Nakdonggang River’s downstream by topic. Information on the landscape, ecosystem, delta triangle formation, the nearby eco park, and tourist facilities of the Nakdonggang River’s downstream fulfill the curiosity of tourists.
You will find the observatory on the third floor along with convenient facilities, such as the café. A telescope helps people view the Nakdonggang River’s downstream in detail. The sandy bar formed by soil sediments brought down via the river, including Doyodeung Delta, Sinjado Island, Baekhapdeung Delta, and Jangjado Island, is a magnificent sight to see. As the soil scatters and builds up via the sea, water, and wind, the size continues to change. The landscape formed by the union of the river’s gentle waves and the ocean’s dynamic waves brings forth a great and moving sight that cannot be expressed in words.
Do not miss out on the Amisan Noeulmaru-gil, another way to view downstream the Nakdonggang River. The moment you step outside and take in the breeze of the ocean fragrance, you will have a more breathtaking experience. Walk down the wooden staircases that connect below the Noeulmaru-gil to reach the observation points. Around sunset, this is a great spot to enjoy a fantastic view of the ocean, sun, and sandy beach. Even the cloud that hangs above the red sun over the black Gadeokdo Island is like a mesmerizing movie scene.
Amisan Observatory is a place where you can see nature’s magnificent view of the natural sandy beach, the migratory birds, and the sunset’s red glow.
Need rest from a busy daily life? Need a moment of peace? Climb up the Amisan Observatory to receive the most beautiful comfort that’s out there.
