If you don't see it you didn't miss very much. Most of the places are closed but at least the few that remain are okay. Can go but it's not a must.

Qingdao ShiLaoRen (shí lǎo rén: 石老人, Old Stone Man) is perhaps Qingdao's most impressive bathing/tourist beach. Very crowded with tourists during the summer holidays in China. We were there almost at the tail-end of summer and beginning of autumn and there are still many people at this beach. This is an ideal place to spend an afternoon or warm summer... More

Don't even think about putting your little toe in to these waters unless your in a submarine, a walk on the near by footpath is the closes you will get me to the water and you will know why once you get there

Nice, clean beach, but unfortunately too cold to swim in April. Lots of places to eat and drink along the beach front and very lively even though it was mid-April.

Shilaoren is the longest beach in Qingdao. It is reasonably clean but you would still find lots of plastic debris in the water. During summer, it gets very crowded as it is a very popular destination for Chinese tourists. And of course, at the same time, it suffers from the algae bloom that affects the whole coast of Qingdao!

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

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

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.
