Whether you've seen the more famous hill crawling sections inland or have never set foot on it, there is only one place you can see The Great Wall plunge into the sea. This made us choose QHD as our entry point into China from South Korea.
It is a heavily restored section due to its location and footfall so if you're one of those people who grumbles about the restoration etc, note that there is a protected section of unrestored wall in the fort here too.
Probably not worth a trip out from Beijing just for this and not as spectacular as the hill crawling parts near QHD or north of Beijing, but it is a significantly easier walk (being flat) and a great alternative location to become one of Chairman Mao's "real men". If you're passing through or in the area then you should certainly visit.
