After searching in Dalian for several camping's we finally found one we can stay at. Huge beach with many places to choose from for our caravan

Found some camping in the proximity of the beach

And now it is time for camping in Dalian. Found a suitable place for the caravan, 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 with us picnic tables and chairs so we could sit outside when possible.

The 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.

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

The beach was long and fine sand but unfortunately, rubbish here and there. Mostly from city people who come for daily picnic or during evening having some parties. I wish there would be more trash bins and the parents would act as examples and pick up the rubbish.

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 besides that small shop for snacks and drinks was open until late at night.

Cleanest toilets on our trip. The normal 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 for mopping it. Have to mention this as I have seen many terrible ones.

Grand light show in the city centre of Dalian

The evening came and we decided to head for Dalian city to see the Grand light show in the city center at Xinghai Square. 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. Just to take a break from the beach activities and see something else.


Fisherman’s Wharf

After the stunning light/fountain show headed for the Fisherman wharf. Fishermen’s Wharf 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.
