Read on to learn more about the many wonders and attractions of Dameisha Beach Park for your popular China tour package.

1) Sun Square

The Sun Square can be found in the middle of Dameisha Beach Park, and features structures designed by Australian architecture company Tension Membrane, which offer changing facilities and a place to have a shower and generally freshen up after a dip in the sea. The buildings are designed very much with nature in mind, and fit in perfectly with the surrounding palm trees and golden sands.

2) Moon Square

Situated in the western part of Dameisha, the Moon Square also features buildings designed by Tension Membrane and plays host to various shops selling handicrafts and local specialities. For the adventurous, there's also a place to go bungee jumping if you're feeling brave enough.

3) Sunlight Corridor

The Sunlight Corridor serves as a path between Moon Square and Sun Square, and features beautiful polished stones for visitors to relax on. The corridor is also home to a dense makeup of tropical plant bougainvillea, which throw up a whole palette of colors in the immediate area especially when the sun is at its highest, which, mixed with the natural fragrance of the surrounding flora, makes it a very romantic setting indeed.

4) Wishing Tower

On the right hand side is the Wishing Tower where you can face the endless sea, embrace the clouds above and peer around at the epic mountains that surround the area, and, of course, make a wish. The tower also has motorboats for rental, as well as a nearby barbecue stall and bar, so if you prefer making a wish over a beer or two with some friends, you can head there instead.

5) Barbecue Area

As mentioned before, the Wishing Tower has a nearby barbecue area just 200 meters away, which unsurprisingly gets pretty busy, especially during the summer months. You can rent a pot for 50 RMB for four hours, which also provides you with six chairs for friends to enjoy after your tired China travel. If you've got a bigger group however, you can spend a little more and get eight chairs for 85 RMB (plus the pot) and they'll even throw in a bag of coal, some forks, and a table.
