No.1 Bathing Beach, Qingdao

(3.1/5 based on 130+ reviews on the web)
Reportedly the largest bathing beach in Asia, No.1 Bathing Beach attracts visitors with its soft sand, clear water, colorful fairytale-like chalets, and European ambience. Mild waves and a gentle slope make the spot ideal for swimming. The beach's history begins with the invasion of Germans in 1901, which turned it into an eminent entertainment spot opened only to foreigners. Local government renovated and expanded the beach during preparations for 2008 Olympic Games. The area now boasts bars and restaurants, ballrooms, beach volleyball courts, and over 900 showers. Arrange your visit to No.1 Bathing Beach and discover more family-friendly attractions in Qingdao using our Qingdao tour planner.

  • 海水浴场对于一次放松的旅途来说,绝对值得推荐,近距离接触大海让身心的疲惫顿时清空。沙滩上有不少小贩会卖小铲子和小桶给游客挖螃蟹用,25元一套。
