The sufficient sunlight, abundant rainfall, luxuriant plants, and silver beaches all make it one of the best destinations for a vacation, especially the beaches, drawing numerous beach-inspired tourists. Besides the famous long sliver beach and beautiful seascapes, Beihai is also known for its fresh air which has higher oxygen content. A lot of nursing homes and recovery centers with perfect facilities thus are built in the city. The good environment and fine climate title it as one of China's four most livable cities, along with Zhuhai, Weihai, and Xiamen.
