Yes I guess it is one of the best beaches in Guangdong but still dirty and not very pleasant. It is nice for a couple of hours but also nice to leave again. Usually too many People and therefore also quite dirty.

If you've been to the beaches of Florida, USA, the Caribbean, the Gulf of Mexico or the South Pacific and are hoping for a similar experience, forget China's beaches. But...if you are looking for a beach in China and have no other options, Xichong beach is a nice option. In east Shenzhen on Dapeng peninsula, it's an almost relaxed and... More

This beach can be reached in 1 to 2 hours (or even more) from downtown Shenzhen, depending on the traffic (avoid late afternoon/beginning of evening as the locals like to go there for BBQ/camping... and that's it: no sunbathing for them) Avoid public holidays or children's holidays also for that one, as the beach can be extremely packed with large...

The beach itself is pretty with a 4-5km stretch, however these ppl don't know how to maintain it, leaving garbage on the beaches (a LOT!), i stepped on many beer bottles while walking into the sea. It's... More

This are the best beaches in Shenzhen... There are actually 2 Xi Chong beaches in Shenzhen... Been to both many times... The larger of the two is on the tip of Nan Ao and about 60km out of the city center... You can take buses from the Fu Tian and Luo Hu main bus stations... The other Xi Chong just... More
