When it comes to things to do in Incheon with kids, the city's beaches often come to mind as they're excellent for a day out with the family and admiring beautiful sunsets. Adults can enjoy relax and sunbathe while children can swim in the shallow waters or play on mudflats.

    Traditional markets and amusement parks are great options, too. If you’re seeking a bit of nature in your travels, Jeondeung Temple and the spacious Incheon Grand Park are must-visits. Read on for our list of Incheon's best family-friendly places.

    The centuries-old trees on the path leading to Jeondeungsa Temple create cool and refreshing shade in the summer, but their true beauty is revealed in autumn when the leaves change color. Since the temple is surrounded by mountain fortress walls, the fortress gate doubles as the temple gate, which is highly unusual.

    What the temple lacks in size, it makes up for in an amazing atmosphere. If you’re a nature lover, be sure to visit and take a stroll around Jeondeungsa Temple.

    Location: 37-41 Jeondeungsa-ro, Gilsang-myeon, Ganghwa-gun, Incheon, South Korea

    Open: Monday–Friday from 8.30 am to 6 pm, Saturday–Sunday 8 am to 6 pm

    • Couples

    Eurwangni Beach is a famous sunset-viewing spot year-round, though it’s busiest in summer when people flock to sunbathe and enjoy a swim. The long beach is full of white sand, and the scenery is lovely thanks to the surrounding dense pine forest and rock formations. Eurwangni Beach can be conveniently reached via the airport bus. If you’re looking for a place to sunbathe in Incheon, this beach comes highly recommended.

    Incheon Grand Park

    • Families
    • Couples

    Incheon Grand Park spans 727 acres, making it the largest urban park in the South Korean city. It's so big that renting a bicycle is the best way to enjoy the park. It’s especially beautiful in spring when cherry blossoms are in bloom, but be prepared to face crowds of people. There are plenty of charming spots to see, such as an arboretum, children's zoo, sculpture park, and lake.

    It’s recommended that you set a course in advance because you may get a bit tired before having a chance to see everything. So, rent a bicycle and enjoy pedaling through the trails within Incheon Grand Park for the full experience.
