Beidaihe



Beidaihe



Beidaihe is a district in Qinhuangdao municipality, Hebei province. It has an area of 70.14 square
kilometers and a population of 66,000. is also known as a birding haven.

Beidaihe is a famous and scenic summer resort located at the southwest of Qinhuangdao
Municipality. An alluring coastal village with a small-town ambience, it provides a welcome break
from city life. Its charm lies mostly in the lively inhabitants, bustling night stalls and, of course, the
seaside views. From long stretches of pebbled sand to small coves, it is easy for travelers to escape
the masses.


The Beidaihe Beach Resort stretches 10 km from east to west, from the Yinjiao Pavilion to the mouth
of the Daihe river. The beach itself is covered with fine yellow sand stretching some 100 meters to
the sea. This naturally pristine beach, like the rest of the Beidaihe Beach Resort, will attract millions of visitors from all over the world each
summer.

The Yinjiao Stone in the east is one of the most popular attractions of Beidaihe. It is a separate rock with the unique shape of an eagle perched
upon it. Groups of wild doves once dwelled in the rock caves there, so it is also known as "Dove Nest". Yinjiao Pavilion is at the peak, where
visitors can enjoy watching the powerfully energetic ocean.

The environment around Beidaihe is considered beautiful by many. Mt.Lianfeng near the beach has two peaks covered by abundant green pines
and cypresses. Lush vegetation, caves, decorated pavilions, secluded paths and winding bridges have made it attractive to visitors from
throughout China. There are still few Western tourists, and there is little proliferation of English among the local populace.

Moreover, Beidaihe is one of nine famous sun-rise watching spots in China. The Yinjiao Pavilion, on the
northwest beach of Beidaihe, is the best place to watch the sun rise. Another way to witness this
beautiful morning event is out the window of one of the local trains.

Home to vendors, speed boats and school outings, the locals herald the Tiger Rocks as the central
attraction of the middle beach. This rock formation is composed of several huge rocks protruding from
the sea like crouching tigers. Standing on one of these rocks, one is fascinated by the beating waves
beneath and the vast sea in the distance.
