The beach here is very nice. The water is clean although the toilet was broken last time and there are only 2 changing rooms. But you can observe the Forbidden city from here.

This is a house that has been converted into a cafe and a museum. You can climb upstairs and use the free binoculars to look at no-man's land. Take the time to watch the short documentary and visit the small museum. They also sell catfood...More
