Putuoshan was a nice day out with the family. A bit of hiking & sightseeing, as well as some swimming in the ocean. Bring your own food, and you can easily spend the entire day in the area. The swimming areas have lifeguards, as well as boats monitoring swimmers. One can rent floaties as well. One thing to keep in... More

You can catch a ferry to the island from Zhujiajianzhen. There isn't a bridge out to it. While my friends and I were there, we went to... More
