“Nice spot to relax and take in the sea”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2014

We happened to experience the sunrise from the beach. This was a beautiful experience as the south china sea is directly east, you can watch the light creep up over the horizon.

We returned in the afternoon and chilled out on the beach. There are stalls and food options all over the place but nothing that great. There were some people swimming in the water but it really didn't look very clean. Especially when compared to other beach spots nearby.

Nice spot for a picnic and a walk along the beach. There are also a bunch of fast food joints like McD, KFC and BK right there.

“long beach front to stroll”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2014

lots of annoying monkeys and vehicles coming from all directions.I like the McDonald by the beach. Quite a comforting place to chill amid the hot and humid weather

“Just passing by during late afternoon”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2014

When we went past the most wrongfully placed American fast food giants, we entered the nice and quiet scenery of the beaches. We loved the view and the friendly people.

“another night market?”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2014

the place was crowded at weekend night with those little stalls selling all kinds of souvenirs,cloths, food, people singing, drawing portraits etc etc.. from far u wold probably think its a night market.
if you were to enjoy the sea n beach, would recommend you to come during day time on weekday where it is less crowded n get a better view.

“Things have change NOT for the better.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2014

Was there yrs back. Over the yrs things have changed quite a lot. There's no more serene and calm. Too busy and overcrowded with too many activities to appreciate. The sandy beach that I used to compare to the sand in Bali was nowhere there anymore. The water was very murky not as clear as before. I believe the come up of the too many construction contribute to the degrading of the quality and condition of the once admired sandy beach. Not natural anymore. Except for the majestic big stones by the beach and an ever growing numbers of native monkeys the rest you may want to skip.
