A second user said: “It’s a beautiful beach with a long stretch of sand. It’s relatively clean now. But…..with the new Metro stops at DaMeiSha and XiaoMeiSha, it will never be “uncrowded” again.

“The cost from Convention Centre on Metro is 8.8 rmb (97p), much better than the 250 rmb (27.65) taxi ride. Get there early before the crowds.”

A third user said: “Well kept and clean sandy beach. It can get very very busy in the evenings and weekends, take this in to account when visiting, especially if you arrive by bus because they can be packed out too. If you have time take a walk around so you can get a good view, the paths are an easy stroll.”

A fourth user said: “It was years ago that we visited and this year, come back to see many changes, especially, need to register and pay entrance fee. Overall, it worth coming to this beach when staying in Shenzhen City, either on business or leisure. Here would be very crowded during summer time and be expected to have traffic jam. While it is good to relax and take a walk on the beach.”
