Hailing Island: Dajiao Bay Scenic Spot is the highlight

Dajiao Bay is located in southeast of Zhapo Town on the Hailing Island. It is surrounded by mountains on three sides and faces the boundless South Sea. The beach is 2.5 kilometers long and 100 meters wide. It is in the shape of ox horn, whence came the name of Dajiao Bay. It is the best known scenic spot on the Hailing Island. A mountain can’t be called beautiful without water and a peak can’t be charming without clouds. The bay enjoys gentle breeze and waves and the peaks are shrouded by clouds. Dajiao Bay has beautiful sunshine, soft beach, clear sea water, and fresh air—a good place for tourism and vacation.
