10 Things to Do in Beihai That You Shouldn't Miss

December 7, 2017 Renato Branum

Beihai (Chinese: 北海; pinyin: Běihǎi) is a prefecture-level city in the south of Guangxi, People's Republic of China. The name of the city means "north of the sea" in Chinese, signifying its status as a seaport on the north shore of the Gulf of Tonkin, which has granted it historical importance as a port of international trade for Guangxi, Hunan, Hubei, Sichuan, Guizhou, and Yunnan. Between the years 2006 and 2020, Beihai is predicted to be the world's fastest growing city. Beihai has a large shipyard, but most of the money generated in the city is derived from trade.

Silver Beach (Yin Tan)

This popular beach stretches more than 16 miles and offers a variety of summer recreation including volleyball, sandcastle building, speedboats, horses and sunbathing.

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 sunlight. Unfortunately, since then it has not been at its former glory. If you are in the area, make a trip for it. The shops are nice and the food is good. It is honestly one of the better places in South China.

ZhuHai Lu BuXingJie

Reviewed By Giulio1412 - Italy

The place is definitely worth a visit to see how an old and crumbling quarter has been revitalized and made available to the public. Over the last few years local people have come back to populate the street, so that more and more buildings are permanently inhabited. Also, this is one more place where the past interactions between the Chinese people and the foreigners have been placed under a positive light. Local shopowners are quite friendly and willing to socialize with foreigners if you happen to speak some Chinese. Interestingly, also Russian and Vietnamese languages are used in street signs and tourist information displays. Lots of small shops and eateries to stop at (try the local "shrimp cake" available at the food stalls).

Beihai Modern Architecture

Reviewed By AcbMei - Canterbury, United Kingdom

This area is in the north part of the city close to the north harbour. Most of the buildings date from the early 1900's and look it. Some buildings have been rebuilt but there is a good variety of shops and food stalls and it is pedestrianised with the usual collections of character statues to photograph.

Qiaogang Resort Beach

Reviewed By Lizzie M - Guilin, China

What I like is there are less visitors, but there are more buildings around. It is actually a harbor for fishermen. It is inhabited by about 10 thousand overseas Chinese who came back to motherland in the late 1970s, especially from Vietnam.

Haijing Square, Beihai

Reviewed By bob k - Beihai, China

I was staying a short distance from here and would take a walk along the beach at night to watch the fishermen bringing in their catches at night. Local ladies also are visible and do their beautiul "folk" type of dancing every night, weather permitting. There are park benches to relax. Many local couples and families come here nightly. It is very peaceful and relaxing.
On the street are food vendors serving typical local food that is very reasonably priced. Drinks are also available.

Beihai Music Fountain

Reviewed By DavisFamilyx4 - Bendigo, Australia

This can't be called a music Fountain anymore as it is in such a state of disrepair it's not going to work anytime soon! There's not even any water in the surrounding pools.
It's now merely a big metal sculpture on the park behind the beach front, near the toilets and showers if you need to wash off after the beach. It doesn't warrant a special trip.

Beihai Underwater World

Reviewed By Mr_Traveller_Man

There are a lots of restaurants in the park just front of Underwater
World. They sell local food and mostly it is really good quality.
The poor quality restaurants do not survive here because the locals also eat here. So go to the places where there are a lot of locals.
The park gives quite nice surrounding even if the restaurants are more quaint.

Guantouling Tourism Zone

Reviewed By luolun1968 - Beihai, China

At first look, not so interesting but if you take your time there are a few very interesting aspects to Guantouling Hill and surrounding area. You can see traditional boat building of the local fishing boats, there is a great beach where hundreds of couples have their wedding photos taken and my favorite is the working Buddhist temple. The temple has a wonderful atmosphere and it’s a good place to relax. The building of the temple and the landscaping of its surroundings is an ongoing project. Continuing to the top of the hill you can have a view of the whole of Beihai city. Going down the other side of the hill there are more OK Beaches and a few cafes. The hill is at the western tip of the peninsula on which Beihai is built. You can have a very pleasant day out.
