There seems to be a lot of confusion about Beihai beach. There are in fact two beaches; the North Beach and the South beach (Silver Beach). Beihai is a peninsula and the north beach faces the mainland whereas the South Beach (Silver Beach) faces out...More

Numerous visits have led me to the following conclusion. As far as Chinese beaches go this is a pretty good one because the sand is soft and cleanish (note the ish). The beach is long and there can be hordes of locals and Chinese holiday...More

Silver beach is a nice enough beach, relatively clean with small waves. The tide comes in relatively quickly here. You need to be aware of all times as the idiot surf ski drivers have no sense and ride at fast speed through the swimmers. I'm...More
