Found Golden Pebble Beach with DIY camping

And now it is time for camping in Dalian. Found a suitable place for the caravan, Golden Pebble Beach, settled down, took out our camping gear, and connected the water and electricity. The ski box on top of the car was packed with beach toys and extra clothes, adding 750L more space. We also had picnic tables and chairs to sit outside when possible.

Golden Pebble Beach is located in Jinshitan Scenic Area, it is a 50km drive northeast of Dalian, and it did not take long to drive there by the highway.

The weather in Dalian at this time was perfect, not too hot or cold, and the sun was shining.

The Golden Pebble Beach was a couple of kilometers long and very quiet. Even in July, not so many people traveling

The Golden Pebble Beach was long and had fine sand but, unfortunately, rubbish here and there. Mostly from city people who come for daily picnics or during evening parties at the beach. I wish there were more trash bins and the parents would act as examples and pick up the rubbish.

Dalian Golden Pebble Beach
Wondering if I should go swimming
Small restaurant and shop at the beach in Dalian, Golden pebble beach
A small restaurant at the beach and a small shop for snacks and drinks were open until late at night.

They had the cleanest toilets on our trip to Golden Pebble Beach. The standard squatting toilet, but when you get used to it, it is ok. The cleaner slept at the end of the row of the toilets and, if anyone flushed, immediately went there to mop it. Have to mention this as I have seen many terrible ones.

Grand light show in the city center of Dalian

We headed for Dalian City in the evening to see the grand light show at Xinghai Square’s city center. Light Show is held every day at 18:00, 18:30, and 19:00. This is one of the biggest squares in Asia, and the light show was amazing. Take a break from beach activities and see something else.

Fisherman’s Wharf

After the stunning light/fountain show, we headed for the Fisherman Wharf. This is a seaside community built in the style of an American east-coast village in the early 20th century. We were too late as almost everything was closed, and the building breathed late 20th century with fog closing in. You could even see the water particles in the air.
