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...More

A large beach where one can find less crowded spots if that is preferred or staying in the middle of the crowd if that is your preference. It's also reasonably clean, especially during peak season. But with the occasional exceptions. There are plenty of entertainment...More
