A misleading place with a comfortable coastal environment

The name of this place suggests that it is an island where top government officials go for vacationing. However, that is wrong in that the island is there but where you are... read more

We did the drive along Binhai Road, and drove into the BangChui Scenic Area (had to pay 60RMB for three of us). This consists of a number of hotels and a beach, which looks out to the island. The beach is lined with a number of large painted statues of sea creatures. We were there in January, but were lucky... More

The name of this place suggests that it is an island where top government officials go for vacationing. However, that is wrong in that the island is there but where you are permitted to visit and stay is everywhere by the beach and coast across the sea from the island but not inclusive of the island. Anyway, the air is... More

Most people visit during summer, but I thought it would be intriguing to see during winter. The day was misty and moody, with a light rain sprinkling down. The island itself isn't really very impressive, but it's quite fun clambering over the rocky, seashell-covered beach and walking along the coast.

Pros - quiet park area, you can easily walk and take rest, just few people even it was Golden week (this note is valid for the whole Dalian! unbelievable), beach is not dirty, I can imagine swimming here when warm. Cons - easy to go there, take a taxi (cca 20rmb from city center), but complicated to return! (no public... More

A small beach with not too fine sand, has a hotel on it and is surrounded by rocks. Overall, not a great view and not worth it for a stand alone visit. Very little by way of activities available on it.

The visit is worth the trip. Seeing the beach and the "dumplings" with rubber donuts around their waste is a trip. It seems that Chinese do not like to swim very much and are afraid to be at the beach without a float. Note that you can't walk the beach, the tents are right up against the water so that... More

This area is the villa of government officials. Very beautiful spot. But I visited just Bangchuidao only. It is just small uninhabited island...I'm not interested in it... This area has villa, Hotel, Golf course, coast, etc. Many the wedding couple have taken picture this area because this is good place for memorial picture.

To get there yuo can take a scenic but much longer coastal route from dalian youhao square. It is still 20 yuan per person to get in and hardly anyone about on the beach. Not really a beach in the sand sense as its made of small pebbles. Water is pretty clean by chinese standards. The park area is magnificent... More

Resort like area on the east side of bing hai road. It was beautiful, serene, a long windy road leading to the beach over-looking the bangqiao island. Tall pine trees on one side and the ocean on the other. You can drive and stop along the way and take pictures along the walk way and viewing platforms. We also visited... More

The resort.. winding roads through a beautiful park-like setting ..which connect the various resort facilities, and can be taken down to a very nice beach on the ocean, which looks out at the Islet. The 74 acre resort was ideal for romantic strolls. It was peaceful, well treed and almost entirely natural in ravines and over hills, with the balance... More
