Huge beach

Old Stone Man is a large beach, sandy and clean. Not as intimate as other Qingdao beaches though but nice and suitable for families.

If you are traveling in the summertime, you might not be able to see the beach because of all the tourists! During the algae season, the water turns a magical green! According to my friend, a professor at Ocean University, there are much higher than average mercury levels in the water here (although I did go swimming there 2-3 times... More

The beach is great. Avoid to go there Saturdays and Sundays, the whole city will be around. In the SPA you can find good food for reasonable prices.

The beach is dirty, water looks very dirty (couldn't go in to swim), lots of seaweeds, full of water bottles on the sand, paper, etc. A water at the beach was RMB 6 which is super expensive for a water in China. To rent a table with chair, RMB 450, also absurd. Don't waste your time going to Shilaoren, not... More

We visited this beach with a group of kids in June. The Beach was quite busy but it was no problem finding a big enough space to set up "camp" (no we haven't bought our own tent for this yet but I know I will succumb soon as it is a very practical for keeping us, bags and other items... More

Their are actually two beaches at ShiLaoRen, the West and the East (I'll just say the right and the left). When your facing the beach the left is toward the distant old man rock. Thats the part where nearly all the swimming, pavilions, crowds, services, changing rooms are. And I must add that that area is HUGE, big as Copacabana... More
