I went here several times while visiting Beihai. Early morning swims were relaxing and the beach was practically empty. The showers will cost you, so bring cash.

A large beach where one can find less crowded spots if that is preferred or staying in the middle of the crowd if that is your preference. It's also reasonably clean, especially during peak season. But with the occasional exceptions. There are plenty of entertainment...More
