One of the best beaches in the Chaoshan area. As others have mentioned, it's difficult to get there if you are not familiar with the area. Bus # 105 (5rmb) from around the city center of Shantou will take you to the pier from where you will board a 30 min ferry ride to the Island. Once on the Island,... More

If you also complain that the pollution is very bad in China, this place can change your mind. The seafood there is really fresh and delicious. You can even have some dried seafood back. I have been there several times. The air is fresh and swimming in the sea is really fun. PS, you need to take the ferry to... More

For a chinese beach, this one was great. Getting to the island can be a bit of a hassle though, as some other reviewers have mentioned, so be sure to plan ahead. The island iS quite large, so if you plan to get around and explore, then be sure to get to the pier early.

We often go to the Nan'ao island to have a good time near the sea. The beach is clean and pleasant and the island is beautiful.

We chartered a MPV with driver to Nan'ao Island for a day trip and ended up waiting close to 4 hrs at the pier (due to some fog) just trying to get onto a ship that can bring us to Nan'ao Island. When we finally reached the Island, we just went to a regular seafood joint with seaview and meal... More

We went over to the island via ferry which was packed going to and fro. Be prepared for some unhygienic situations while on the ferry which is quite like a boneshaker. We experienced a delay going to the island and at times when the sea is choppy the ferry schedule would be scrapped and you would be stranded on the... More
