I strongly recommend Tan Nan Wan beach on the island.There are a lot of things to do.You can rent a jet ski,swim,hike.There are some restaurants and bbq shops with delicious sea food.This beach has changed a lot in 1 year.White sand,blue sea,amazing climate,simply, paradise !

I spent one week on Island. It's boring, windy and beach is nothing special. Food is kind of expensive!!!

We went to Pingtan from Fuzhou and managed to swim at the island off the Eastern coast. On the island we found a stone house village which looked very nice. We didn't see all that Pingtan has to offer so we are definitely coming back.

Contrary to some islands, Pingtan retains a very modest appearance throughout most of the island. Abundant street seafood, lots of sand everywhere, and most people will be very curious to see a non-chinese visitor. My advice is get off the main streets and up the hills, try to rent a bike and just ride along the shore. It definitely won't be crowded, you'll get great views (both ocean and small stone villages with a rural look), and you might even be lucky enough to come across a small café like I did, and get yourself some bubble tea. Pingtan for the win!! PS: Try all the street food!!! There is so much variety and it is all so tasty!!…

I went here with a small group of friends over a holiday weekend. We set out from hot Fuzhou dreaming of a swim. When we got to the beach it was nicely cooler but windy. They tell me it's often windy. The beach had ponies to ride, dune buggies to hire and even a few wind surfers. The water is quite clean. Went to the recreated Old City and saw a play with judges, pretty maidens and pirates. . Not bad as long as you realise it's really a theme park and a way to sell goods to tourists. The sea food is excellent here and I found sea scallops which are not so common. The next day we went to the fairy well by the sea which is also supposed to be a place for now immortals to ascend to the heavens. Pretty but not exceptional. Still too windy for swimming. There's a lot of construction and associated, mess but Pingtan will become a showpiece and trading centre with Taiwan. There is even talk of a very long bridge. Go for the seafood.…
