“Great beach area”
Reviewed July 5, 2013

With a bright sunny day this area is great. Some good eateries and chilled out bars along the way. Is this the California of China? They even have the Baywatch lookout towers!

“Bring or buy a picnic lunch, camera and swimsuit”
Reviewed September 17, 2012

I havce ridden a bicycle from one end of the trail to the other. At a good speed I was able to get from one end to the other in about 1.5 hours. I passed several beautiful beaches where you can stop and swim or just listen to the waves and enjoy the atmosphere. For the active people seeking adventure you can even take kite boarding lessons, or just relax and capture the beautiful images on your camera. The ride will take you pas the new International Marina, Exhibition Center, Arts Center, Xiamen University as well as the beautiful beaches along the shared pedestrian and bicycle pathway. It is one of the best Harbour front Trails and Roads I have experienced and there are always signs of development and improvement.

“Great place to have a walk and ride a bicycle”
Reviewed September 1, 2012

As this is along side the shoreline, it is a perfect place for some relaxation and you might like to rent a bicycle to ride along the shoreline. It is a great experience with the sea breeze and you do not have to walk.
There is a run down amusement park which you can get back some memories of old time amusement park games. There is no entrance fee, but you do have to pay for the games you play.

The only thing I do not like is that you have to return the bicycle from where you rent it. Meaning, if you ride far away, you have to ride back to return the bike!

“Take the Golf cart ride”
Reviewed April 4, 2012

It is a comfortable road but it may be best to take the golf carts from the pier to save you some legwork. Although flat, it's quite a walk around the island.

“Daily occurrance”
Reviewed April 1, 2012

Huandao Lu has something for pretty much everyone. Beautifully maintained stretches of grass for picnics, the beach, miles of cycle route (complete with interestingly designed bikes for hire i.e. ones which do not seem to fit a westerners body or many Chinese bodies either for that matter!) and miles of seaside walking to be had. Driving along here on a daily basis it is easy to become blase about it but this is a beautiful stretch of Xiamen to explore.
