They like to advertise this as the best beach in China, if not the world! Ha! They obviously haven't been to any beach in Hainan. The sand is grey, the water is brown. Silver nowhere to be seen. It's not too litter strewn, but it's...More

A large beach where one can find less crowded spots if that is preferred or staying in the middle of the crowd if that is your preference. It's also reasonably clean, especially during peak season. But with the occasional exceptions. There are plenty of entertainment...More

Hmmm Silver beach, where are all the people? We arrived mid morning and the beach was empty. Just a few people. The beach was a little dirty but we found a nice place to setup. Kids enjoyed the day in and out of the water...More

This is one of the few beaches that actually do not have as much litter than the rest. The beach even looks nicer than all the other beaches in China. Bei Hai silver beach once had a reputation of silver sand that shines with the...More
