Recommendations

 

• The amount of time you spend at the beach depends on your interest.
   If you include beach activities and surrounding areas it can be an all day activity.
   Just to view the beach is maybe 30 minutes with the bridge light show.
• Come early. The parking spots get full fast. Take public transportation if possible.
• Bring flip flops for the beach and wear comfortable shoes, as well as snacks, water, and sunscreen/ hat. Great place for a picnic
• Combine the beach with Millak Raw Fish Town (민락회타운). You may purchase fish on the 1st floor and then go to one of the restaurants on the 2nd floor through the 10th floor to have them cook it for you for a small fee.
   After your meal, take a digestive stroll through Millak Waterfront Park for a nice walk and view of the ocean.
