Gwangalli Beach & Millak Waterside Park

Gwangalli Beach & Millak Waterside Park

Nighttime is when this beach truly shines: it starts with the spectacular sunset, followed by an unobstructed view of the nightly Gwangan Bridge light show (8, 9 and 10pm Fri-Sat and 8 & 10pm Sun-Thu), which is sometimes complemented with firework displays. There are street performances along the promenade and dozens of inviting eateries. Unsurprisingly, the beach tends to get quite busy after sundown and is especially popular with local youths who particularly favour the area. If you feel up to a genuine local nightlife experience, pick up some picnic food (sashimi and soju are usually the local combinations of choice) and join the crowds at Millak Waterfront Park.

Boksoondoga F1963

Located at the F1963 cultural centre is Boksoondoga, a fine dining restaurant celebrated for cultivating a revival of "makgeolli", a traditional variety of carbonated Korean rice wine that is fermented with "nuruk" and served unfiltered. Historically, this particular variety of wine was held to be a farmers' drink, but has now gained a following among the younger generations and brought into the realm of "hip" by enthusiasts such as the founding Kim brothers. The restaurant serves an excellent menu that straddles Korean and western influences. After a meal, explore on and browse through the book store and gallery space of F1963.
