3.1/5 based on 120+ 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.
