Which Beach do You Prefer along the long Coast Line in Shandong?

Shandong peninsula penetrates far into the Pacific Ocean. Along the long coast, there are various beaches offering different equipment and scenery for your different requirement. Which one among them is you favorite? After reading this blog, you can choose one as your destination in China.


The first recommended is Qingdao First Bathing Beach in the city of Qingdao. This beach is known as the largest bathing beach around the whole Asia and it receives the most tourists every year. The beach is embraced on three sides by green hills and traditional Chinese and western architectures decorate the place, giving it a unique style. The sea water here is calm and clear, making it a perfect outdoor bathing place. However, in the peak season, there might be a lot of crowds here.

If you want to rest in peace and enjoy a leisure time, the beach near Laoshan Mountain might be a better choice. There are few people but fine sand. You can check in a little rural inn here and take a enjoyable holiday. If you have children, here will be the heaven for them to play with sand and pick up beautiful shells. You can also enjoy the freshest seafood here with a fairly reasonable price.


Weihai is another coast city in Shandong province and there are also a lot of beaches that you can choose from. The most famous beach here is called Rushan Silver Beach. Because there is large amount of shell powder mixed in the sand, the beach appears to be silver and as fine as soil. The wave here is relatively large, so that it might not be a perfect place for swimming.

There are many other beaches in Weihai, among which Weihai International Bathing Beach is the most famous. Here is the east end of Shandong peninsula. As a result, water exchange is fast and frequent, making it the least polluted area. The tourists here are not as many as the beaches in Qingdao, so you can have more space to enjoy yourself.


In the downtown of Yantai, there still exist some foreign old style houses. Hundred years ago, western people living here enjoyed bathing in the sea, so Yantai is a city that enjoys a long tradition of sea bath. Golden Beach Tourist Holidy Zone in Yantai is the first “first class tourist holiday zone of provincal level” in the whole province. Here, the beach is long, the slope gentle, the sand fine and the water calm. You will feel awesome bathing in the sea here.


Aother bathing place worth mention is Xianshan-Changdao in Penglai. This is a little island where live a lot of fishermen. You can spend some time living in their house, going to the sea with them and eating the fresh seafood. The sea water around the island is light blue and transparent. The only problem is that the water is comparatively cooler here, making it challenging to swim and bathe. The best bathing place should be the Moon Bay. There are mellow and full cobble stones all around, which is beautiful and adorable.

Is there any place mentioned that makes you can’t wait to visit? Or you can just come and find other interesting and pleasant beaches in Shandong. In that case, please tell us.
