In addition to Zhujiajian's rustic coastal scenery, you can also explore a variety of the scenic area's other hidden charms. You can see all the best places in just 24 hours. 


Early risers can enjoy the morning sunrise over the sea. Breathe the clean, fresh air year-round. 


There's no better way to start the day than with a nice hike. The scenic area is filled with mountains. 


Take a stroll at Wushitang, a nearby beach. The stones on the beach are translucent and round, as they are eroded by seawater throughout the year. They also glitter in the sunlight.

You can also try your hand at fishing with the local fishermen.


Have a rest and enjoy some authentic seafood.


Enjoy the captivating seaside views at the Dongsha and Nansha scenic spots, as well as the road circling the island.


Don't miss the sand sculptures at the Nansha Scenic Spot. The carvings feature some iconic figures and will take you back to your childhood. 


The sculptures in Nansha begin lighting up around this time. Starting in July, visitors will also be allowed to swim at night. 


Impression Putuo, a live-action show created by renowned directors Zhang Yimou, Wang Chaoge, and Fan Yue, returned to the stage at the Zhujiajian on June 26.

The show first premiered on Dec 31, 2010 and highlights local Buddhist culture. 


After enjoying a performance, try out some midnight snacks. Zhujiajian has many night stalls selling seafood.


Zhujiajian has a choice of excellent homestays catering to travelers on any budget. Sleep to the peaceful sound of sea waves and wake up with the sun the following morning. This is what a summer holiday should be like.
