we were booked into a hotel near the beach but they changed it before we arrived. so we`ve got a tiny room with tiny shower / chinese toilet. 30 mins walk to the beach which was closed cos there were some waves! no bars or cafes, a few walks... very basic place. ok for dead people....

Only a 45 min ferry ride this has beautiful beaches and hills to hike. The hotels are very meager but I am told there will be new hotels opening in may and October. It will then become quite crowded I'm afraid. Few Chinese restaurants, primarily seafood. This too will change with the opening of these hotels. The garbage on the island was an issue. Not really clean areas around the main village. Rats and roaches were abundant and until the trash issue is addressed I don't see this changing. A day trip is definitely advised since it is a beautiful area to explore, hike and enjoy the beach.

If you are not a cleanliness freak this is an alright place to be. The hotels are not the best and it would be best if you booked a package as there aren't many hotels on the island. The ride to the island from zhuhai was choppy but, once we got there we had fun. We had a little train take us to our resort and for a minimal sum they let you bbq. We had taken all our eatables and ingredients from zhuhai as you wont find much on the island and of course everything is over priced. The view from our resort or most resorts are amazing as they are all in close proximity to the beach.
Many new places were coming up when we made a trip so hopefully now it would be a whole lot better.
Theres only one boat that takes you to the island from zhuhai and only one that gets you back so you wanna make a proper plan.
The beach not too great.
