Xichong Beach, Shenzhen

(90+ reviews on the web)
Beach
Named one of the ten most beautiful parts of the country by the Chinese "National Geographic," Xichong Beach packs in a small slice of paradise, popular with backpackers and surfers. Located in the southern part of the Dapeng Peninsula, and looking out over the South China Sea, the beach is exposed to vibrant sunrises--people camp out here by the hundreds to catch the first rays of daylight. Explore hiking trails in the surrounding area, including a 10 km (6.2 mi) coastal stretch to its sister beach. Expect crowds on weekends or especially nice days. Use our Shenzhen tour planner to visit Xichong Beach on your trip to Shenzhen, and learn what else travelers and our writers recommend seeing nearby.
