Beidaihe Scenic Spot, the famous summer resort, is located in
the southwest of Qinhuangdao City. Its coastlines, seaside
attractions and convenient transportation all make it a popular
destination for travelers. Beidaihe Scenic Spot is situated in the
warm temperate zone, with a damp monsoon climate and four distinct
seasons, neither too hot in summer nor too cold in winter.
Therefore, it is suitable for all year round travel, though, the
best time to visit is from May to October.
The long coastline to its south has soft sand and sea water of
moderate salinity, making it an excellent place to sunbathe and
swim. Many modern holiday villages and public bathing places have
been established, where you can taste local snacks and delicious
seafood, ride in a speedboat, or relax in a ballroom dancing. If
you want to get away from the masses, a stroll on the pebbled sand
will bring you close to nature.
In the central area of the scenic spot is a great attraction
called Tiger Rock Park. It has many huge rocks looking like a herd
of tigers. Standing on any of the rocks gives you a deep enjoyment
of the beauties of nature. The sea breeze pushing against your
face, the waves beating the rocks and the vast sea will make you

twenty-meter (66 feet) steep rock like an eagle perched on the
cliff. Because groups of doves nest in the cracks there, it is also

as a place to watch the sunrise.
The pine-covered Lianfeng Hill, which backs on to Beidaihe
beach, comprises two peaks, the east peak and the west peak. Taking
the secluded path you can reach Wanghai Ting (Seaside Pavilion) at
the top of the hill, where you can best appreciate the vast sea and
the scenery around the mountain. At the foot of Lianfeng Hill is a
beautiful park named Lianhuashi (Lotus Stone Park) because of the
many unexpectedly huge lotus shaped stones.
