Pleasent beach, clean. Very crowded during tourist season. An alternative is silver beach to the north, more locals here.

I have never seen so many tents, umbrellas and people at a beach ever! and the water wasn't crowded as most people don't swim. go for the people watching. lots of food, side shows and rides, clean. good toilets (chinese) have a look and you will be surprised.

The basic appearance of our beaches is something we take for granted, but once you go to Golden beach you will be reminded of just what those nicities are. Expect vendors to be trying to sell you tons of useless garbage, expect ATV to be going up and down the beach expect litter to be common place.Expect there to be... More

We traveled from Qingdao to Huangdao and this beach was very very crowded and dirty. Definitely not worth it. There are many cleaner beaches in the main Qingdao area.

The beach in Huangdao is cleaner and nicer than in Qingdao city. A good change of pace and was not very crowded as well. It is more trouble to get there than in Qingdao, however.

A nice wide beach with plenty of room for beach activities. Would be good if there were some better eating areas though. Really caters mostly for Chinese tourists, so you soon realize you are but a guest. Will be good when the subway is built, but then the crowds!

Expected a beach packed with all in sundry including the staple diet of Chinese guys in dodgy swimming trunks taking photos of their girlfriends all day long, but actually I was pleasantly surprised! because the beach had ample space and was very relaxing in terms of the ambience. Did not encounter litter as some have mentioned in reviews here. Tip:... More

if u dont mind to have thousands of chinese arround u , it is ok. For a foreigner ,it is quite difficult to manage for taking a tent in order to change your cloth , but once u learn it is is easy :) .. the water was clean enough ,and the sand acceptable .

Its nice for its isolation and lack of tourists, but its not maintained often, and a lot of rubbish is on the beach.
