Songdo Beach: My Happy Place in Busan

I rarely wade into water deeper than my ankles. I know how to swim, but I’m not crazy about the other stuff, like fish, that can swim too. However, there’s an undeniable magic in the sound of the waves, the aroma of the sea, and the texture of sand beneath my feet and between my toes. I’m drawn to a serene beach atmosphere, one without towering skyscrapers, opulent hotels, or bustling crowds. A casual beach walk is my kind of activity, regardless of the season. The option to stroll along the boardwalk, experience a glass-bottom cable car, or go for a mountain hike while keeping the ocean in sight is pure joy. That’s why Songdo Beach in Busan is my happy place.
