Silver Beach (Yin Tan), Beihai

3.6
#2 of 29 in Shopping in Guangxi
Lounge on Behai’s Silver Beach (Yin Tan), a 24 km (15 mi) long stretch of coastline, named for its shimmering quartz sands that reflect the moonlight. Hailed as one of the best in China, the beach offers scenic views, with its warm waters providing safe conditions for swimming. You can indulge in numerous water sports activities, such as boating and jet-skiing, with an array of beach bars and restaurants to choose from. Although the water is quite safe, with lifeguards stationed on the shore, you should take care to avoid motorboats and jet-skis in the water while swimming.

Where to stay in Beihai

Scattered chiefly along the coast, with some dotting the streets of the inner city districts, hotels in Beihai often offer affordable rooms compared to other popular Chinese cities. You can find a number of basic guesthouses a little further away from the city center, while several high-end hotels boast lower-priced rooms as well. A couple of hostels offer budget-friendly dormitory-style rooms, or, if you wish to stay near the beach, you can book an inexpensive room at one of the mid-range hotels there.
