Let's face it, as popular as Busan's Haeundae Beach is, the crowds there during the summer make a day at the beach unbearable. Fortunately, the Korea Tourism Organization (KTO) teamed with the Korea Marine Environment Management Corporation to select and recommend 20 beaches around Korea that provide a more relaxing experience.



Close To Seoul

Most of the beaches recommended in the article are found on the west coast in Gangwon-do. However, Dongmak Beach can be found on Ganghwa Island, which is merely an hour away from most of Seoul.

Hyeopjae Beach and Gwakji Gwamul Beach, both on Jeju, also make the list...but you're probably going to be taking a plane to get there...not a boat.
