Ok Visit
Jul 2021 • Couples
We had an ok visit to the Golden Pebble Beach and some of the surrounding areas. We found the areas outside the main swimming area were not well maintained and had a fair amount of garbage. The main Beach area was clean but was very crowded. The sea looks nice and the water is a good temperature in July but bring sandals or water shoes as there are quite a few rocks and stones.

The closest metro station is Jinshitan - Golden Pebble Beach and it takes about an hour to get out here.

Golden Pebble Beach on the Yellow Sea
Nov 2020
Chilly in November, but still nice to walk on the beautiful, clean, long beach. Lots of entertainment facilities, cafes, restaurants and other eateries nearby.

Hard Rock Hotel Added To Golden Pebble Beach
Jul 2020
The summer of 2020 was good to Jinshitan, unlike a lot of the rest of the world, as Golden Pebble Beach came back better than ever. Last year Jinshitan added a Hilton Hotel that looks like a palace and this summer there's a new Hard Rock Hotel that's shaped like the waves of the Yellow Sea. Jinshitan's new Hard Rock Hotel is a stone's throw -- no, a pebble's throw -- from the Yellow Sea and a beach that stretches for miles and miles. There's an outdoor pool across the street and the Black Mountains, with a ridgetop hiking trail, are nearby, too. The Hard Rock Hotel has a bar with live entertainment nightly and a restaurant that must be the biggest one in Jinshitan. Roast duck is a specialty. This is my seventh summer on Jinshitan Beach, I'm happy to say, and each year it gets better, with a waterfront that's more organized and nearby attractions that get upgraded. By the beach there's everything from small barbecue or coconut vendors, not to mention seafood, up to the huge theme park called Discoveryland Kingdom. Jinshitan is hard rockin'!

Golden Sand Beach in Jinshitan
Oct 2019
I find it odd that you need to pay to rent umbrellas and even to sit down on plastic chairs. In other parts of the word, some of these facilities are free for the public. Otherwise, everything is fine. Just don't go there during major public holidays or else you will just see people rather than the beautiful scenery. I took a didi/taxi from Golden Pebble Subway station. Not sure

Multiple sites
Jun 2019 • Family
JinShiTan is actually an area that combined with 8 villages, like a co-developed tourist location. There are many sites and things to see there, will probably need a day to cover all

There are few museums with different themes that are fascinating that worth a visit. Golden beach is also another location that worth going during the summer time.
There are some local trips such as boat ride to "feed" the seagulls, fishing, tasting of fisherman life, etc

Golden Beach With A Palace
Jun 2019 • Couples
Jinshitan or Golden Pebble Beach was great six years ago and it has gotten better every year. The latest addition is a Hilton Hotel on the hill and peninsula separating the two sections of this long beach. The hotel is not a tower, it's a sprawling palace that blends in beautifully with the landscape between the Yellow Sea and the Black Mountains. The beach gets better each year with separate areas organized for boating and swimming. There's a new speed boat around one area and pedal boats nearby. There are two KFCs on the beach, one McDonald's, and lots of xiao chi or Chinese street food, which is great. People like to take sea grass from the beach, dry it on the beach, roll it up, and take it home to eat for the rest of the week, for a reminder of Jinshitan Beach. At the north end, the beach ends with a boardwalk connecting it to the Geo Park. Dalian's coast is beautiful from the downtown area up to Jinshitan but Jinshitan beach is the best.

Jinshitan Beach In Winter Is Great, Too
Feb 2019 • Couples
Everybody knows Jinshitan has a great beach for the summertime but not everybody knows Jinshitan has a great festival of lights in the wintertime for Chinese New Year and Spring Festival. The light show is two blocks from the beach, near the train station, in front of the 6 museum complex. It was free last year, for the first year, but now there's a small entrance fee. It attracted big crowds last year. This year the street is blocked off, bus routes have changed, so visitors can walk in front of the complex and take pictures. If you go, be sure to take your camera! There are many artistic installations and they are all full of lights. The streets of Jinshitan are also lit up with red lanterns and smaller lights for miles in both directions. The centrepiece for 2019 is a replica of the Forbidden Palace and it's a beauty.

A beach of pebbles, not sand
Feb 2018 • Family
Most areas of the beach are covered with pebbles, not sand, so it's not a good idea to lie down. It's also too crowded to really enjoy.

Best part of our vacation
Aug 2018
Our 4 days in Jinshitan didn’t feel long enough, there’s a lot of great things to do in this small region. Somehow someone has saved it from developing into a largescale housing area and maybe that’s why we enjoyed it so, it’s all about leisure here. It’s a very beautiful spot and the attractions we went to were all good. Better than the usual China standard. Go there now and get it while it’s good.

Surprisingly relaxing
Aug 2018 • Couples
Despite the increased development of this resort, it is still possible to enjoy the simple pleasures of the fine beach and pleasant promenade. The beach is quite clean (and good for kids to play with the sand) and the sea water is clear. On a hot sunny weekday in August the East beach was relatively uncrowded and the sea was ideal for swimming - no need to go to the fancy new pool.
We also spent an enjoyable hour on the Golden Bay Bridge just watching the fishing boats unloading their catches below.
Let's hope that the future development doesn't cause these pleasures to be lost.
