Dameisha and Xiaomesiha beach
Not surprisingly for a coastal city, Shenzhen has many beaches to choose from. And despite common belief, they are actually not that bad. With beaches such as Dapeng beach, Xichong and Dongchong being the preferred choice for many expats, the distance is quite far and it takes around 2 hours or so to bed there, not really an ideal choice. So, a good alternative is Dameisha and Xiaomeisha. Getting here from city center is much easier taking around 1 hour or so.
Dameisha is quite a long beach, you will first see the large colourful angel statues on display. These are quite a sight. The problem with this beach is because it is free, it is actually very busy on weekends and holidays. During weekday it is fine. If a crowded beach is no problem to you, and you just want sand and sea then this beach suits your needs well. There is enough space to find a place to lie down and you can have a swim in the sea. There are toilets and changing rooms (not clean) and lots of places to buy snacks and water. If you want lunch/dinner the main strip outside the beach has tons of choices.
Xiaomeisha is located about 2/3 km from Dameisha. Smaller and less crowded this has a 50 RMB entrance fee which explains why there are less people here. The sand is clean and the water nice to swim in. They have sun loungers to rent or you can just lay out on the sand. There are cleaner toilets and changing facilities here, although still not the best. You cant leave and comeback but there are ample restaurant choices here if you wanted lunch.
CURRENTLY CLOSED FOR RENOVATION UNTIL 2023
As with all beaches in china expect some noise and crazy behavior, but take it with a pinch of salt and relax
This is also known as secret beach because of its hidden location and it is tricky to find. If you go during a weekday there will lilely be nobody else there. It’s a little way past Xiaomeisha but worth the extra effort. After you have finished you can check out the Yantian Ocean Greenway Shenzhen
Xichong beach is a good place for surfing and water sports. It is also a good option for a quieter beach and for a swim. Downside is it is far from city center needing around 2 hours to get there
the neighbour to Xichong this offers a similar array of things to do. Also known for its water sports and surfing. Same downside it is very far from city center.
This is a popular beach around 60km from the city. Getting here requires a car or taxi as there is no metro and the bus will need to be changed at least 2 times. The beach is nice enough but like most places can get crowded on weekends. There are decent facilities around and I suggest you grab some seafood at one of the many local restaurants.
