Busan, Gwanganli, White Island Guest House | 화이트아일랜드 게스트 하우스
Day 1, Busan
I would love to recommend this cozy and lovely guest house that my parents and my brother stay for one night on the first day in Busan. Due to different flight schedule, five of us arrived Busan one day early before the Chuseok (추석), while my sister family another 5 persons will arrived next day early morning.
Husband and I will be overnight at Busan home, as we need to wake up early for the prayer (제사) next day early morning. So, we had arranged my parents and my bro stay at this lovely guest house so they could visit around Gwanganli beach by themselves.
This guest house name is White Island - Bed & Breakfast. Ground floor is a cafe selling self-brewing coffee and sandwiches while upstairs is a 3 rooms guest house. The guest house is located inside an alley which is just about 3 minutes walking distance to main road and 5 minutes walking distance to famous Gwanganli beach.

The lodge at first floor is accessible via staircase next to the entrance. Picture on left is the view from first floor, while on right is the main door to the lodge.
After the entrance is the small dining table and kitchen area. The kitchen is small but equipped with induction cooker, toaster, kitchen sink and fridge. Complimentary breakfast is provided :- freshly brew coffee and cheese & egg mayo sandwich.
The guest house interior is like a wooden cabin house and it smells great. There is an aroma scent perfume smell inside the house. There are 3 guests rooms in the guest house, the room we booked is on the picture right (single door) just right next to the entrance.
The air-conditioned room consist of 1 queen size bed and 1 single bed inside, a white color wooden cloth hanger and a wooden bench. Simple yet cozy. The room window can access to the veranda, and it is link to the main entrance & staircase. Therefore it is important to keep the sliding door locked when nobody is around.
The bathroom is shared among all three rooms. Basic toiletry such as shampoo, conditioner, body shower, tooth paste & toilet paper is provided.
Picture taken from the veranda the next day morning while waiting for my parents and bro coming back from Gwanganli. They have went out for a stroll when we arrived at the guest house. My parents review that they feel safe to walk on the alley even at night compare to our country.
From the alley in front of White Island Guest House, it only takes about few minutes walk to reach the main road where Gwanganli beach can be spot not far at the end.
Walk towards the beach, stunning view of Gwangan Daegyo (Diamond bridge) will become visible before reaching Gwanganli Beach. Restaurants and convenient store can be found along the road too.
We are going to miss you, snow white. We named her snow white since she is all white!
