Stayed in an Airbnb house near the beach and the house offers a beautiful view of the Gwangan Bridge. At night, there’s a light show at the bridge. It’s also a great place to catch sunset and sunrise too!

We visited this place during the fall season. We came by at night and it was beautiful because of the view you get of the Gwangandaegyo Bridge. It's a good place to stroll around. There are also a lots bars and restaurants around.

Very clean beach with calm clear water. The bridge over the sea is beautifully lit at night and provides an excellent view.

Did not see any light “show” per se. Just a lit bridge. Eateries around the area more for groups/ sharing.

Gwangalli beach is an amazing place that doesn't get enough recognition when compared with its "sister" Haeundae Beach. Visited both places and Gwangalli will always hold a special place in my heart. Gwangalli Beach is full of life so you will always find something to...More

This is a really good spot for ending a touristic day. You can buy your wine (or soju due were talking about Korea) and just sit in the sand to watch the bridge from the beach. Is a really nice view to relax and talk...More
