Stayed one night in the Intercontinental Qingdao next door and took the opportunity to explore the area in the evening and early morning - definitely a great location to relax and to explore

Good for a stroll, but not much to do
Jul 2020
We have been staying close to the Olympic Sailing Center in the Intercontinental Hotel, so we walked here occasionally. It's sometimes a bit crowded, and there is not much one can do, besides looking at the sailing boats. We walked here on an summer afternoon, and there is no shade - it can be pretty hot.
The area is good though for a run - during early morning hours. One can run for many kilometers along the shoreline, which is quite refreshing.

Must-go
Sep 2019
This was the first spot we stopped at on our private tour of Shandong. Enjoyed a relaxing stroll along the oceanfront promenade even on a summer day. It just felt nice with the sea breeze and nicely designed piers. A pleasant visit indeed.

A nice, easy walk, very informative. There is a lot to see and plenty of places for a snack or drink. There is also a shpping mall nearby.

A Pleasant Afternoon
Sep 2019
Built for the boating sports of the 2008 Olympics, the left-behind is a quite nice waterfront area, with piers, a small marina, lighthouse, and museum. A very pleasant place for a walk. Crazy crowded in the summer, it is a better visit in the fall and winter - the sun still shines, and the tourists stay home.

The area is surrounded by a wide variety of excellent restaurants, hotels, and high-end shops and malls. We have held events here which were quite successful and enjoyed by all the guests.

And as an added benefit, the site looks out over downtown Qingdao, and ever since the SCO meetings, the skyscrapers are all outfitted with LED lights, making for a spectacular nighttime light show.

The place is a little bit distanced actually, but it is the best place to have quite afternoon with a cup of coffee and take a look at the beautiful skyline of the city.

Interesting place but loooooooong past its glory days
Nov 2018 • Friends
On a recent visit to China we took a tour up to Shandong Province, and the first city we visited was Qingdao, with one of the first places on the tour being the Olympic Sailing Center.

This is a large(ish) area that, back in 2008, hosted the sailing events in the Summer and Paralympic Games. However, like other Olympic sites in China that I've visited, it has somewhat lost its lustre.

It's a nice enough area to walk around, and walk around we did, and it was great not being shoved and pushed by huge throngs of people as there was barely anyone there. It's just that there isn't a lot to see there...

The Olympics flags are still there, and did look great flapping in the breeze, there's a giant Olympic Torch, and there's the May Fourth Square Monument, but other than a view of the Marina and some piers, it's not a "must see" venue.

Beautiful place Qingdao
Aug 2018 • Business
Qingdao is a costal city of china. It is very near to Korean countries. Lot of korean people are living and working in Qingdao. In 2008, When Beijing Olympic Games were organized, all water sports games were held at QIngdao. QIngdao Olumpic Sailing centre built very nicely & beautiful.
Evening time is superb to visit this place.

Change of Status at OSC
Feb 2018 • Solo
If you're planning a trip to Qingdao, and hope to enjoy the Olympic Sailing Center, be aware that it's mostly closed in preparation for the Shanghai Cooperation Organization meeting in June. A new convention center is being purpose-built for the meeting. Many of the sailing clubs (including mine) have moved their boats to the Yinhai marina about 3 km east. From Aofan Jidi bus stop, catch the 231 bus to Yinhai youting julebu bus stop. It's about four stops away, and walk down the hill to the marina. Or, you can enjoy a walk along the seashore as I do almost every morning before I head to the boats to teach sailing. :-) Enjoy your stay!
