Some might say it's dirty, other might say it's ok, anyway you see it, it's a worth visit to the beach because there are lots of seagulls and you can smell the fresh cool breeze coming from the ocean waves. I certainly really loved there!...More

It was a cold winters day when I visited, but still there were a few people on the small beach. Not worth a visit, unless you want to see the famous "stone man of the sea"

If you don't see it you didn't miss very much. Most of the places are closed but at least the few that remain are okay. Can go but it's not a must.

Qingdao ShiLaoRen (shí lǎo rén: 石老人, Old Stone Man) is perhaps Qingdao's most impressive bathing/tourist beach. Very crowded with tourists during the summer holidays in China. We were there almost at the tail-end of summer and beginning of autumn and there are still many people...More
