Hamdeok Beach Reviews
Visited at mid-day in August. It was very hot but beautiful. had a picnic near the carpark and took a stroll along the trail on the east end of the beach. There is a small freshwater spring on the bea... more »
Even on a cloudy rainy day it is still beautiful. The waters were clean. There are restaurants and cafes lining the beach. Free fountain to clean feet. more »
Nice beach, good surroundings, populous but not overcrowded. Water is clean, and an... Interesting amount of seaweed. Also some great pork barbecue restaurants in the area.
So beautiful place with blue sea water. The thing about Hamdeok Beach is that if you arrive in the evening, you’re likely to think that there isn’t much of a beach.. or beaches in the area but that’s because the tide has come in and covered it up on the western end. Hamdeok has three small beaches that don’t get taken over by the tide in the evening and the two to the east are the most popular by far. If you come in on that end of Hamdeok, you’re likely to think it’s too busy and want to leave during high season. I’d tell you to keep walking west and you’ll like what you see though. If you want your own space, go as far west as you can. That’s just what we did and it was spectacular.
