Descrizione

Busan’s newest tour attraction, the Busan Air Cruise at Songdo Beach, got off to a great start with tourists in the thousands visiting over its first weekend of operation. It runs 1.62 kilometers and you can enjoy the view from a height of 86 meters. It’s the longest cable car over the sea in Korea.
Busan Songdo Beach, Located a mere 3km from downtown Busan, Songdo Beach is a popular escape for the area’s city dwellers each summer. Opened in 1913 as Korea’s first official beach, the beach was named “Songdo” (meaning “Pine Island”) in reference to its bordering groves of pine trees. The beach began to gain popularity in the 1960s for its graceful coastlines, but was damaged by frequent hurricanes and subsequent sand loss. Starting in 2000, the beach underwent a comprehensive 5-year reconstruction and reopened with restored and expanded coastlines and the addition of several fountains.
The magnificent cliffs and tree-lined seaside views of Amnam Park bring the harmony of the bluish-green waters and the forested landscape together. Originally a protected area, entrance was not permitted until its opening to the public in 1996, when visitors could first experience the untouched landscape. Now, visitors can fish, explore the observatory, and enjoy the walking path and the elevated bridge. The abundunt pine trees along the walking path makes for a pleasant stroll while the path up to the observatory offers great views. If it is fishing that you want, here you can fish on the ocean as well as off the fantastically shaped rocks. There is also a famous road to go for a drive, leading from Songdo Beach to Amnam Park. This drive takes approximately 5 minutes, but it takes about 20 minutes on foot.
A Walk on the Sea at Songdo Beach The As Busan is famous for beaches, it is very busy and jammed with a crowd of people during the summer. Especially the Songdo Beach, located merely 3km from downtown of Busan, began to gain popularity for the area’s city dwellers each summer in the 1960s because of its graceful coastlines. In fact the name of “Songdo” means “Pine Island” in reference to its bordering groves of pine tree. Songdo Beach Skywalk, formally opened as the Korea’s longest and curved sea overpath in June 2015, was equipped with of 104-meter-length (from sea shore island to the lighthouse) and 2.3- meter-width that was made with special steel plate and wood. The bridge was 5.5~6-meters-high above sea level. Visitors are able to see the color of the ocean while the wave rolling under their feet through the floor which made of tempered glass double-reinforced, included strong railing. So this is the place for visitors can securely revel in the sounds of churning waves and an expansive ocean view.

  • Songdo Beach Skywalk


Cosa facciamo
  • Lasciamo il porto per raggiungere una favolosa attrazione turistica: la cabinovia Busan Air Cruise, che si libra sulle acque della baia di Songdo con cabine panoramiche a 10 posti, sospesa tra due piloni infissi direttamente in mare.
  • La baia di Songdo, costeggiata dall'omonima spiaggia di sabbia e scogli, si trova a soli tre chilometri dal centro di Busan, una meta particolarmente popolare tra gli abitanti della città che desiderano sfuggire alla congestione urbana.
  • Saliamo a bordo della cabinovia per un'emozionante traversata aerea della baia, ammirando panorami spettacolari sul mare e sulla città.
  • Scendiamo sulla *spiaggia di Songdo, incorniciata da magnifiche alture coperte di vegetazione e da un litorale fiancheggiato da alberi di pino, dove possiamo trascorrere una pausa di relax facendo una passeggiata e ammirando il mirabile incontro fra il blu del mare e il verde intenso delle foreste circostanti.
  • Sulla spiaggia è presente un ponte sospeso, il Songdo Beach Skywalk, che serpeggia sulle acque della baia come un drago sinuoso, ispirato nelle sue forme alla leggenda di un giovane pescatore e del suo amore per la figlia del re dragone, signore del mare.
  • Percorriamo il ponte sospeso, provando l'emozione di sentirci un tutt'uno con il mare, grazie alle sezioni di camminamento trasparente in vetro temperato che creano l'illusione di camminare sulle acque, mentre il fragore delle onde fa da colonna sonora a questa magnifica esperienza e davanti a noi si schiudono vasti panorami d'incredibile bellezza.
