Beihai, a coastal city which is located in the southern part of Guangxi while its Chinese name means the “north of the sea”. The reason for having this contradictory name is that Beihai used to be an important port for Guangxi, Hunan, Hubei, Sichuan, Guizhou, and Yunnan. Hence, it gradually turned into a thriving seaport on the north shore of the Gulf of Tonkin. Today, many visitors come and have a stroll on the sandy beach.
There are numerous well-known attractions in Beihai, ranging from Beihai Silver Beach to Golden Bay Mangrove. Among these majestic attractions, Weizhou Island has to be the most splendid attraction in Beihai, which is crowned as the most beautiful beach in China.
