The travel agent in our 5 star hotel in Beihai arranged our trip. They said a vehicle would collect us off the ferry but did not say this would be an open buggy. We thought it would be a car so did not have adequate warm clothing with us. We said 'no churches' but we're together taken to two. We... More

Rare nice beach in China. Not well developed so unless travelers have a certain level of Mandarine; otherwise, not truly tourist friendly place. There are several beaches. All the recommended ones are not so good. I prefer "Shell beach" and also the beach next to the "Zhang Shi Hua Yuan You Pier". Others are not worthy to go.

You can get there by going to the international ferry terminal. Since it was winter, only three boats are running out to the island. For a day trip, 8:30 and 12:00 were available. The boat ride is a little over an hour. When you get there, local drivers are available. The lady who helped me get around charged me 120rmb... More

The ferry tickets is expensive and it is become popular these years, better to avoid the peak tourist seasons. There are beautiful bronzing volcanic rocks, green trees and blue clear sea. The dry seafood is very good and I bought some salt fish and dry Sha Chong(a kind of special seafood in Beihai)as gifts.

Out we were 1st class and back we were 2nd class (seats a bit smaller and views not so good). We caught the 09.00 boat and took 75 minutes on a calm sea to arrive at... More
