Go to YangMeiKeng Beach in Eastern Shenzhen
We all dream of visiting those beautiful islands and beaches to enjoy the soft sands, cool winds, clean water, surfing, Diving, Watching sunrise and sunset in a big house,etc.. So, many of us have a tour plan of going to Sanya, Bali, Sabah, Fiji, Maldives, Phuket and many other such famous places. These places are so well known and so far away from the place we live that we must pay a certain amount of money and a certain amount of days to be there. The rare chances to be these places make these tours much treasure to you and you will cherish it in your sweet memory.
However, it is always very if we could enjoy these seashore funs frequently. In Shenzhen, this is not just a dream. As Shenzhen is a costal city, there are many seashores in it, such as DaMeiSha, XiaoMeiSha, Dapeng seashore, Nan’ao seashore, Dongchong, Xichong, YangMeiKeng, Jidiaosha and so on. Among these seashores, the most clean and natural one in my opinion is of no doubt YangMeiKeng. Here in YangMeiKeng, you can have a really relaxed weekend.
If you would like to stay there for a few days, you can book a room or even a house near by the beach either with local farmers or with hotels. There are many restaurants and family inns along the beach. At the end of this beach, there is a group named Deer Mouth Height. There are many wooden houses for tourists to stay. If you have a large enough budget, you can book these wooden houses.
Deer Mouth Height is also a part of National Geopark. It has amazing landscape,including steep cliff, rock hills, corrupt rock cave etc.. There is a restaurant up at the mountain above the beach. You can enjoy the delicious food and the silent ocean sights and winds at the same time.
At YangMeiKeng, the most popular and simple activity is riding bicycle with your families or your friends along the long long beach. There are bicycles for couples, for four persons ,and for four adults with two little kids. Here is a paradise of bicycle because of the long beach. Many tourists who drive to YangMeiKeng also would like to park their cars at the start and then rent a bicycle ,riding along the beach, enjoying the breeze, the huge picture of vast ocean approaching the blue low sky, white soft sand and slick hard stones covering the whole seashore. This riding road will lead you to the Deer Mouth Height.
Besides riding bicycle , along the beach, there are also many barbecue sites. You can rent one barbecue pit, buy charbroil and food with local shops. If you do not want to cook by yourself, you can eat seafood at local restaurant. There are fish, shrimp, crab etc..
