Do you have your bikini and boardshorts ready for a relaxing summer holiday? For those who don't want to travel too far, there are some breathtaking islands inside Guangdong for you to enjoy sun, sand and sea.

Hailing Island in Yangjiang

Hailing Island in Yangjiang City in northwestern Guangdong has a 7.4-kilometer stretch of silver beach. With a silver beach, clear water and breathtaking scenery, it has been listed one of the "Top 10 Most Beautiful Islands in China" by China National Geography magazine.

There is also a crystal palace on the island, which is a museum for the Guangdong section of the ancient Silk Road, an extensive network of trade routes across the Asian continent.

June is the best time for seafood there or beat out to sea with the local fishermen.

Transport: Buses depart for Yangjiang Bus Station from most city bus stations. Then take a bus to Hailing Island. The trip takes about five hours.

Accommodation: There is a choice of hotels in Yangjiang where a standard room costs less than 200 RMB (29 USD) per night. Or stay at Bitaoyuan Holiday Apartments where there are excellent sea views but the cost is less than 100 yuan per person per night.

Cuisine: There is a long list of seafood dishes available and shrimp cakes and barbecue seafood are especially popular.
