I know that when you hear the word 'beach', you will react positively unless you are among the few exceptions! Anyhow, I believe that you already expect somehow lovely about this beach. Here are my descriptions...
Dadaepo is excellent for chilling out either with friends or family. Visitors and pilgrims come to have a picnic and enjoy the refreshing breeze and views around.
Since the sand is shallow, it is very safe for all ages. Some would simply stroll by the shores, while other search and collect seashells.
Being at the estuary of the river, migratory birds come to rest and replenish for their next long flights on the horizon. The marshes provide the migratory birds plentiful of food for their long journey ahead. This site is one of the best places to see them!
Dadaepo Beach is made from sands deposited by Nakdonggang River and features shallow water and broad sand fields suitable for children to enjoy.
Dadaepo Park, located nearby, is another perfect place for a family vacation as various facilities such as a foot bathing facility, shower facilities, and parking places are available.
The beach serves as a venue for several events, such as the Busan Sea Festival and daljip (brushwood) burning event on Jeongwol Daeboreum.
