Very long shore and clean
Jan 2020
it is a less dense beach in china than any other. the best place to go vacation in winter, our hotel has a very good view of the beach, so many couples also come for the honeymoon.

Pisimpiä rantoja jossa käynyt. Hienon hienoa kvartsihiekkaa koko rannan pituudelta, 24km. Leveyttä paikoin 7 km. Satuttiin auringonlaskun aikaan paikalle, upea ja nopea tapahtuma.Kansaa paljon, mutta äärettömän siistiä. Täytyy poiketa uudelleen ajan kanssa.
Longest beach i have never been. Smooth sand over 24 kilometers and some places even 7 km wide. Were there in a sunset , beatuful and quick sunset. Lot of people and extremely clean places. Worth to go.

A big, but otherwise mediocre beach strip
Jun 2018 • Family
It's one of the most famous sights in Beihai. Many people visit the beach, and it's a recognized tourist attraction, but it's mediocre and generally uninspiring.

The Good:
It's a long beach strip with a calm sea, above average water clarity, sand is above average as well.

Lots of crabs in the sand that creates interesting holes. Some water sports options.

The Bad:
It's a blend beach strip with almost nothing to see? The beach isn't too pretty, the facilities seem run down, the water color is not that great. Many beach chair rentals are expensive, lots of things cost money, and some even have scam-level prices.

Overall because it's a free attraction, you can take a walk or even have a rest, but generally it's not an attraction where you can stay very long or be very enjoyable

Crystal clear beach waters
Jan 2019 • Friends
During my visit to Beihai Silver Beach, the breeze off the ocean was light, the sunshine bright, and few people were around. The 26-kilometre waterfront beach is very crowded in the summer months but much fewer come in the winter months. The beach sand was fairly brown during my visit. I was told that under the summer sunlight the quartz sand takes on a silver colour. At about the mid-point of Silver Beach, there is a pier called the Immortal Bridge. Its name relates to a legend of a Japanese monk. Due to the relatively warm waters, swimmers are usually in the waters from April through November. Even on my January visit, there were a few sunbathers on the beach.

Absolutely gorgeous beach
Nov 2018 • Family
The water quality is awesome if you go to the right place, don't go to the most crowded place (of course, near to the main entrance), walk a little further, the silver beach is 24km (15miles) long, you will see absolutely clean sand and water. The silver beach also has a massive amount of sand crabs, cute creature.

Great place for an early morning swim

I went here several times while visiting Beihai. Early morning swims were relaxing and the beach was practically empty. The showers will cost you, so bring cash.

Sipping Coconuts On The Beach
Jan 2018 • Family
Silver Beach is a lovely beach area positioned in BeiHai, China and the Bay of Beibu. The beach is wide, level, and excellent for families and small children. If you desire a trip out on the water, there are any number of small crafts that will take you on a ride. These are small, utilitarian, boats, so make sure the water isn't too rough before stepping from the beach on to your boat. Most, if not all, of the boat owners will speak no English, so be prepared with a few words or phrases to find out the length of your trip and the price. Remember, prices double (sometimes triple) as soon as they see a western face. Be prepared to barter. It is expected by the locals and the fact that there are many boats offering rides means you are sure to get a lower price. For those who want to stay on the beach, there are chairs and beach umbrellas available. However, you don't move the chairs or umbrellas, but sit where they are. Again, be prepared to barter. Getting the price cut in half is easy. Get it cut by two thirds and you are bartering like the locals. Hint: Don't pay more than 5 RMB for your chair. And finally, along the beach are many open air, thatched roof, places to sit and have a cool drink or something to eat. My suggestion? Have a local hack open a coconut for you. Then insert a straw and enjoy a beach as it was meant to be enjoyed.

Unattractive beach
Aug 2017 • Friends
They like to advertise this as the best beach in China, if not the world! Ha! They obviously haven't been to any beach in Hainan.

The sand is grey, the water is brown. Silver nowhere to be seen. It's not too litter strewn, but it's just not remotely beautiful.

Dameisha and xiaomeisha in Shenzhen are much nicer.

Life's a Peach on Silver Beach
Jul 2017 • Friends
Numerous visits have led me to the following conclusion. As far as Chinese beaches go this is a pretty good one because the sand is soft and cleanish (note the ish). The beach is long and there can be hordes of locals and Chinese holiday makers pitching tents, building sand castles and dodging jet skis so privacy is out of the question. It may be fun if you are visiting and like the attention of having your photo taken and being filmed all the time. The water is warm and many venture out for a swim. (Please be careful of rip tides. So far this year I heard around 7 people have drowned - maybe they weren't strong swimmers but......) My friends regularly like a dip, however, after seeing a large pipe pump out funny looking water on another Beihai beach I haven't persuaded myself yet. There are quieter areas where you can escape the crowds and enjoy the relaxing atmosphere. In conclusion, when my friends visit I will definitely take them there for a walk or have a picnic and maybe a paddle haha! It's an ok place, however if you want to relax there are other secluded beaches.
