For a really small entrance fee you can pass a long pier and walk around a small island in front of Qingdao with a lighthouse. The park is nicely decorated, you will see pretty flowers and trees as well as some nice pieces of art (a statue with a lyra, that is really enchanting) During summer you can enjoy cold... More

It is a small island and you can walk around it in ten minutes if you just want to do that. However, you may choose to enjoy yourself by taking in the view. Zhanqiao Pier can be seen from here and the sea breeze is great. If you walk along the causeway back to the main road, you will pass... More

While we visited we thought it would be a nice place to have a picnic in a shady spot, watch the boats and people go by. Great views. Stairs carved into stone. Before you get onto the dam to walk across to Little Qingdao you will find a few Seafood restaurants and also a park called Luxun park. Right and... More

We first went to the Navy museum. Once we left this museum we walked to Xiao Qingdao. Right now (July 2013) you need to walk back to the main street, turn right and right again to find your way to the dam connecting mainland with Xiao Qingdao. The door/gate connecting the navy museum directly with the dam was closed. The... More

Xiaoqingdao is a small island at the end of a causway, admittance Y10, next to the navy museum. It's a pleasant enough place but the best things are the views out to sea and back to the old pier and skyscrapers of the city.

Walking to the 'Little Qingdao' island was an experience. Once you know how to go, it's quite easy. Not much there except a lighthouse and decent coffee shop. Have to pay a 10 RMB toll for entering the island. Nice and quiet place to go. Also quite near the Naval Museum and Zhan Qiao Pier.

Nice change when getting away from other parts of Qingdao. It only cost me 7RMB to take a ferry to the island (can't go wrong with that!).

This is a great place to spent an hour if you want to catch some ocean views. You can see the naval ships (from Navy Museum) across the bay, and of the main Qingdao area with ZhanQiao at the foreground, while the other side offers you ocean views with ships passing by. There is an old lighthouse but not open... More

Small Qingdao Island and the 1 mile walk over to the public beaches is the "E" ticket of Qingdao. The views are equal to Laguna Beach in Southern California. Frankly, for about an hour, I forgot that I was in China. The area is clean, manicured and with natural beauty that rivals anything in China.
