[Shenzhen beach] Dameisha and Xiaomeisha

THE larger no-admission Dameisha and the smaller, 20-yuan-admission Xiaomeisha are the two spots Shenzheners are most likely to name when it comes to the city's far-east beaches.

Heading east from downtown Shenzhen, high-rises give way to the Yantian Port's man-made mountains of shipping containers, then finally, the beaches appear.

Traveling along Shenyan Road, the blue water and salty, fishy smell in the air announce the pleasures of summer.

Dameisha beach

Located on the beautiful Dapeng Bay, the 1,800-meter-long Dameisha beach is edged by green chains of hills.

The sweet smell of plants and the sound of music quickly establish the vacation feeling. The aroma of sizzling sausages, chicken wings and mushrooms from the barbecue stands competes with the fresh air.

The inviting natural environment of hills and sea was incorporated into the design of Dameisha Beach Park. Sun Square and Moon Square, linked by the Sunshine Corridor, are planted with coconut palms and flowers. Tall French loquats provide shade for the parking lot. The entire park is planted with 57 kinds of semitropical plants, turning the edge of the beach into a well-manicured jungle park.

Dameisha Beach Park is divided into five areas: for swimming, leisure, sports, entertainment and barbecuing. Sports include beach volleyball, water parachuting and motorboating. The beach has facilities for shopping, showers, food and drink, and swimming equipment rental.

Sun Square

Located in the middle of the park, the 13,000-square-meter square has facilities for relaxing away from the sun, changing rooms and toilet facilities.

Moon Square

The 4,000-square-meter area at the west end of the park has shops around its perimeter. The inner-Europe flipping field offers a gymnastic challenge.

Wish Tower

(60-yuan per person)

More than 83 meters high, Wish Tower rises to the east of Sun Square. An elevator goes to the wish platform at the top of the steel tower, one of the beach landmarks.

Fall festival

The fifth Shenzhen Golden Beach Tourism Festival will be held at Dameisha from September through October. The festival will include a modeling competition, clothing design contest, souvenirs, beach music and sand sculpting. Sculptors from more than 10 countries and regions, including the United States, Canada, Japan and Singapore, will create 100 works.

Dameisha's more exclusive little sister lies just five minutes to the east. Embracing sea and mountains, Xiaomeisha is full of vitality and charm. A promenade of coconut palms, colorful beach umbrellas, sand and sea form the Xiaomeisha seascape. Activities include water parachuting.

At night, beachgoers barbecue in the square, while around the open-air stage, onlookers are clapping to the dance music.

For beachgoers not up for doing their own cooking, restaurants line the promenade outside the beach. (Plan to eat before you enter the beach area or when you're ready to leave, since the beach admission charge is for a single entry.)

Dunzhou Island, at the southwest corner of the beach, is the place to watch sunrise and sunset as waves hit the rocks along the beach.

Xiaomeisha

During summer weekend evenings, "Night of Xiaomeisha" includes free performances of ethnic dancing, pop music, acrobatics and magic shows.

Across from the beach, the Shenzhen Xiaomeisha Sea World (100 yuan per person) includes an aquarium for seal, sea lion and dolphin performances.
