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.

  • Beach is very flat, low tide at noon outside the shoreline to a distance of 100 meters. Soft sand without foot, to early September sunshine while you still can play very happy. Distance is the yellow Island, mountain and city look, huiquan Bay surrounded by a 360-degree view baths.

  • One of the few beach resorts in Qingdao City. Far from the center of the beach, this access is useful among other things, is recommended. Visited because it was the season to swim a time slow but still play date was quite crowded. But Boardwalk and surrounding environments are furnished and synergy with the landscape seems to be behind Qingdao, was not good.

Where to stay in Qingdao

For upmarket, high-rise hotels in Qingdao, look at the area to the east of the center, largely revamped in time for the 2008 Olympics. Here, skyscraper chain hotels jostle for position on the main streets, offering sea views and a wealth of additional facilities, while humbler options sit on the side streets, offering more basic lodgings, but still in new blocks. To the west, the more historic districts have a good set of hostels, hotels, and guesthouses to suit a wide range of budgets and tastes.
