Nandaihe Scenic Resort: The Perfect Getaway

Connected to Beidaihe by a bridge over a river, Nandaihe is the newly developed tourist and recuperation resort under Funing County of Qinhuangdao City, Hebei Province

With its "basic elements for seaside tourism" -- the sea, beach, sunshine and greenery -- Nandaihe is an ideal venue for taking a dip in the sea and sunbathing. The region is also honored as "the First Bathing Venue Under the Heaven".

Located in the north temperate belt, Nandaihe is characteristic of a marine climate, which means it is neither too wet nor dry. All four seasons are very distinct, although the winter days are never severely cold nor the summer days intensely hot. The average temperatures throughout the year remain at around 10íŠ, with the highest reaching 35íŠ in the summer for no more than a week. Average temperatures in July and August, which are known as the country's warmest months, are fixed at around 23íŠ. While midsummer in most places in China is extremely hot, Nandaihe, however, is an exception: With its gentle-blowing breezes, its climate is very beneficial to human health.

Beginning at the estuary of the Daihe River in the east and ending in the west, the Nandaihe coast extends 17.5 km, with its sandy beaches covering a width of 100-250 meters. Its sands are broad and level, taking on a golden hue -- hence its name, Golden Sands. Every summer, water flows from the estuaries of the Daihe and Laohe rivers, which is in fact derived from the mountains or springs above. The seawater is, therefore, very clean. It is said that rolling around on the beach after a bath in the sea can help dispense of fatigue within one minute.
