I had a great time at Xinghai square. My boyfriend and I went on a day that was a bit chilly but we still had a great time. There were fun statues that were interactive. The view was nice. The beach had super clear water. The best part were the go-carts. These are not typical American go-carts. They were super... More

I was there during winter at north region so it's cold and windy. However, if you are in Dalian, you must visit this area. Great sea view / bridge, amusement park, shell museum, Castle hotel, and nearby Bin Hai road.

This area is definitely one of the richest area in Dalian! Yeah! Right by the beach with very fresh air and green trees! Lovely place to be, the square you can find a lot of people there in the evening doing square dancing, yeah, those are the "square dancer aunties" who always love to do that.

The seaside Xinghai Square is a nice part of Dalian, a breakaway from the somewhat boring city. At dusk it is really beautiful with distant views of the bridge. There are many seagulls flying around even in cold winter (it was around 2 degrees C at my visit). Nice architecture in the square: an enormous concrete structure resembling a book.... More

We were lucky to visit Xinghai Square in winter, but still have an 8 degree Celsius and relatively (for Northern China) sunny day. We had our driver drop us at the end of the elongated closest to the water. This is where the action is. You face the wonderful bridge that runs along the cost the ocean. Turn your back... More

Except for its huge size, this square isn't worth a visit. There's nothing interesting to see. Currently the central area, where the music fountains are, is closed for renovation.

Nice place for a walk after your business meetings. Be prepared for the cold if youre there in winter. Nice cafes abound and its a nice spot for the obligatory tourist photo.
