Silver Beach information
Lonely Planet review
This is what most Chinese tourists come to Běihǎi for: Silver Beach , a long stretch of silvery-yellow sand with so-so waters, about 8km south of the city centre. There’s a host of midrange, doll’s house–lookalike hotels and a number of places to eat, serving expensive but very fresh seafood. Take bus 3 (¥1.50) from the central bus station; it runs until 10pm.
