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.

Alright, Beihai Silver Beach is not the most awesome beach you'll ever go to.
But it is a nice beach, with nice sand, and hot water! Good enough for me I'd say. The problem is that chinese people do not have this culture of sun bathing or even swimming in the sea, so people are often just standing up on the beach, which doesn't look very relaxing. But that depends on what time you go there. Other than that, you can also enjoy fresh juice and local seafood. A bit pricy, it's still a touristic place.

There seems to be a lot of confusion about Beihai beach. There are in fact two beaches; the North Beach and the South beach (Silver Beach). Beihai is a peninsula and the north beach faces the mainland whereas the South Beach (Silver Beach) faces out to the open sea. The north beach is where all the portable Karaoke bars spring up at night and the beach is covered in litter, the water is not clean and I would not swim at this beach. The South Beach (Silver Beach) is a different story with miles of beautiful white fine sand and warm clean water. The water can look milky at times but this is due to the fine white sand being stirred up by the waves and volume of people in the water. I regularly swim at Silver Beach where there are some great little places to change, shower , leave your belongings and charge up your electric scooter. There are also volley ball and barbecue facilities with beach buggies and jet skis available for hire. If you want night life on the beach go to North Beach if you want a beautiful sandy beach to enjoy with the family go to South Beach (Silver Beach). Both beaches can be very busy or very quiet depending on time of day. The Chinese do not sunbathe, so in the middle of a sunny day you can almost have the beach to yourself evenings tend to be the busiest time.

Silver beach is a nice enough beach, relatively clean with small waves. The tide comes in relatively quickly here. You need to be aware of all times as the idiot surf ski drivers have no sense and ride at fast speed through the swimmers. I'm amazed no one has been seriously hurt. There are a few hawkers on the beach selling mainly pearls and sunglasses, but for the most part they aren't annoying. To rent an umbrella and table on the sand costs 80rmb for the whole day. You need to haggle. There are showers and foot washing facilities near the park - it costs 20rmb for a shower and 5rmb for a foot wash.

We stayed here in may 2012 and found a good hotel opposite the beach - yangowan hotel - bit saggy looking but good rooms. The beach looks great but has lots of jellyfish - not sure if poisonous, didn't bother trying to find out. The restaurants on the seashore are a rip off but we had great dinner at the street market at.hai an rd - Which is close to wsilver beach - great food and atmosphere and cheap - try the oysters.cost us 140rmb including beer.

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.

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.

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.
