This is my favorite beach in Qingdao and is very popular with all the local expats. It can get crowded during the peak tourist season but is always a good spot with good vibes!

It was a cold winters day when I visited, but still there were a few people on the small beach. Not worth a visit, unless you want to see the famous "stone man of the sea"

It's a gigantic beach with lots of room and lots of things to do in the area. Not many cheap eats and drinks in the area though. It was nice in the spring, but I heard it gets really busy in the summer though.

This is a lovely beach, maybe not the cleanest, most tropical or most beautiful but if you want sand and water, you're set. From the beach it is possible to see the old stone man, after which the beach is named. To the west, the...More
