Dameisha & Xiaomeisha Scenic Area

Da Meisha and Xiao Meisha are two beaches which form the coastal scenic area on the shore of Dapeng Bay in Yantian District of Shenzhen City. This scenic area has been a popular place where people have been happy since ancient times. Nowadays guesthouses, hotels, villas and camping houses can be found along the seashore offering tourists somewhere to relax and enjoy the beautiful seaside scenery.

Let's first go to Xiao Meisha which has the notable name of 'Oriental Hawaii'. The scenic area is surrounded by green mountains on three sides, with one side facing the sea. At the edge of the sea the sandy beach is like a crescent set between the blue sky and the vast ocean. This beach, resplendent with multicolored umbrellas, stretches for 1,000 meters (about 0.6 miles) and is noted for its clean bathing water. Out to sea yachts run before the wind giving up white spray, while motorboats and parachutes may also be seen. Laughter fills the air and when night falls, the barbecue field attracts crowds lured by fragrance of the food being prepared. The blue sky, blue water, white crested waves and golden sands attract thousands upon thousands of people who come here each year.
Da Meisha Scenic Area boasts Shenzhen City's longest beach which is 1.8 kilometers in length (about 1.1 miles). The beach is wide and the sand here is fine and soft while the clear seawater is shining in the sunlight. 'Wave Surfing on the Da Meisha Beach' is one of the 'Top Eight Scenic Spots' in Shenzhen. Several groups of themed sculptures stand on the beach, depicting the aspirations for a better life of the 'Drifting Generation' (the young people who had unstable jobs and insecure living conditions during 1940s-1980s). However, now the sculptures have become a symbol of happiness in the scenic area.

This beautiful seaside resort has golden sands and a blue sea that sets off the white sails of the boats under a sky dotted with white clouds. To the landward side there is the backdrop of green mountains where the fragrance of the coconut trees and beautiful flowers is carried by the sea breeze. For the adventurous who may be seeking entertainment there is the 'Water Slide on Ropeway', a challenging sport introduced from the occidental area. On the mountain near Da Meisha beach we can find Cultural Relics dating from about 3,000 years ago in the Shang Dynasty (16th - 11th century BC), such as the bronze vessels which represent the fruit of ancient civilized society and enable us to appreciate the brilliant wisdom of the ancient Chinese.

Da Meisha and Xiao Meisha Scenic Areas are Shenzhen's two excellent bathing beaches. On sunny days, many wedding couples come to the beach to pose for their wedding photos. How romantic! It is really worth paying a visit there.
