Shanghai is near sea, but Shanghai never has a good beach. Shanghai is one of the most richest cities with one of the highest travel demand – so people in Shanghai love to hang around in Sanya, and spent huge amount of dollars on air tickets.
Is there a way to build a beach with sand in Shanghai?
People in Jinshan gave it a try.
That is a big area of beach, with nice sand. It is said they shipped the sand from somewhere – Dalian? The water is at least clean, and you can identify the color of blue in the water. There are people sailing in the sea.
This is the beach I saw most like beach in Shanghai, although it is still far from real beach.
I didn’t bring a camera. Sorry that I didn’t take photos.
It is easy to get there by car. Just get to S4. When you intersect with G15, you are almost there. Look at the map above.
It is about 70 km away from where I live. It took about one hour to get there. Bandenger is bigger than Goudaner. Although it is not as easy to manage in downtown Shanghai as Goudaner, it did take care of us better. I didn’t feel tired after the two hour trip. It seems we can go to surrounding areas more often in the future.
