It is composed of the Seaside Stone City, Sea God Temple, Jinglu Watchtower, Nanhaikou Pass, Chenghai Pavilion, Ninghai City, and Seaside Great Wall. Henghai Pavilion is the commanding height of the scenic area, thus the best place to watch the sea scenery.

  Stop 1: Dove Nest Park
Beidaihe Scenic Area
Beidaihe Scenic Area
Dove Nest Park is one of the four main scenic spots in Beidaihe Scenic Area. The most attractive scenery should be the splendid sunrise from the sea. If interested about it, please inform your travel consultant in advance so we can adjust the itinerary accordingly: get up early to watch sunrise, then return to the hotel for breakfast and check-out procedure before continuing the itinerary. That’s why we recommend a hotel within the walking distance from Dove Nest Park. Another highlight is the thousands of various migratory birds in spring and autumn. It is also home to more than 600 pigeons. If you want to sail to the sea, the boats are available at the cruise port; the guide can assist you to rent one. 
  Stop 2: Tiger Stone Park
Located in the center of Beidaihe Scenic Area, Tiger Stone Park is named after the huge stones on the beach shaped like tigers. With soft sand, clear water and wide beach, it is the best place for enjoying a sunbath or sand bath and playing with water. If your budget is enough, it is also interesting to try motorboats, sail boarding and surf boarding. In the west of the park lies a small wharf where you can take tourism boats to the sea or go sea fishing. 

How to Get There from Dove Nest Park

The guide will lead you there by bus No.15. After getting off at the stop Tiger Stone Park, walk southward along the street for about 600 meters (660 yards) to the entrance.
  Lunch Break
After coming out of the Tiger Stone Park, the guide will leave you some time to have lunch and take a short break, before heading to the 3rd stop of today. 
  Stop 3: Lianfeng Mountain Park
Lianfeng Mountain is not high, but covered by lush trees. There are also ancient pavilions, cliff inscriptions, strange rocks and more there. Standing on its highest peak, you can have a bird’s eye view of Beidaihe and look far into the sea.

How to Get There from Tiger Stone Park

Follow the guide to take bus no.22 to get there directly.

  Beidaihe Travel Tips

 With temperate marine climate, Beidaihe Scenic Area is neither too hot in summer nor freezing cold in winter. The weather in summer is cool so a T-shirt is enough, but remember to protect yourself from the sun burn. Adding a thin coat is necessary if you take a walk along the seaside at night.
