Shenzhen has several greenways that you can walk, offering long streches of scenery, greenery and a good option for exercise
But one of my favourites, in fact one of my favourite places to go in SZ at all, is the coastal walk in Yantian. Now with line 8 opening this is easier than ever to get to.
This is divided into many parts and sometimes you need to go up onto the sidewalk and then back down to the walkway. You can get some awesome ocean views and its a good option to get some fresh air and relaxation
Part one goes from beizaijiao beach to Xiaomeisha beach. This is maybe the best section of all. You can see a mini lighthouse, this is as far left as you can go. Right leads you towards Xiaomeisha and you can see some beautiful rocks and awesome views
Part two is Xiaomeisha to Dameisha. This is a renovated walkway after the previous one was destroyed in the typhoon of 2018. You enter JUST before the start of Xiaomeisha. Look for a set of stairs going down
The boardwalk is wide and new and spans over the ocean and rocks below you. You can hear the waves and see HK in the distance. Really a great place
It ends at Dameisha beach where you can relax, or get a bus/taxi to wherever you want to go
BEACHES IN SHENZHEN
Option 3 is another walkway in Yantian, but this one is not connected to the beaches. But it does go across the ocean again.
It is much wider than the 1st one and not as beautiful in my opinion. There are no sounds of waves, but you do get nice views o the islands in the distance, and there are lots of benches to sit and watch. You can also see lots of fisherman, or people out enjoying themselves.
It goes for couple of KM and it ends near a cool looking temple
Remember to explore this area of ‘shatoujiao’ because there is quite a lot of character here
Get a didi or taxi to Beizaijaio bus stop. It can be found easily on didi English. The walkway starts here
