Xinghai Park is a 800-meter long, bow-shaped bathing beach. Black reefs scatter over the bay, appear indistinctly as the tide waves leap. It is a good place for bathing, swimming, diving, camping, boating, fishing and barbecuing.
Bangchui Island is located at the eastern end of the beach road, a short drive along Binhai Road. The northern side of the area is encompassed by mountain ranges and the southern stretch is an area of pretty, soft sand. Since it looks like a wooden club, it is titled Bansdo, a transliteration of its Chinese name. From here, there are good views of Sanshan Island, which is often shrouded in mist. The beach here was once reserved only for Party Members and stars, but today it is open to the public.
