Located in Huizhou (China), Xunliao Bay 巽寮湾 is a tourist area in the eastern part of the Pearl River Delta in Guangdong. Xunliao Bay is honored as a dazzling pearl among Guangdong coastal areas.

In order to visit this place, I joined to a hiking group arranged from Shenzhen. The bus dropped us near Xiashan Pu 下山埔 and we walked about 25 minutes to the first beach to start coasting. The total distance of the hike is about 12km and may take around 6 hours

Situado en Huizhou, Xunliao Bay 巽寮湾 es una zona turistica del este del Pearl River Delta en Guangdong.

Para llegar a esta zona, me uní a un grupo de excursionistas organizado en Shenzhen. El autobús nos recogió en un punto concreto de Shenzhen y nos llevo hasta Xiashan Pu 下山埔. Desde ahí caminamos hasta la playa durante 25 minutos antes de empezar la ruta. La distancia total de esta ruta es de 12km y su duración de unas 6 horas aproximadamente



Continuing walking through the beach the hike begins with its first rocks. 70% of the coast are pure rocks, so better to bring sport shoes with a good grip, since some rocks along the way are a bit slippery. Sun block is also a must for this place, the sun is strong and just few shelters or shades will be found on the way

Caminando por la playa, la marcha empieza con sus primeras rocas a la vista. El 70% de la ruta es pura roca mientras que el 30% restante son senderos y playas. Para la zona rocosa, es recomendable unas buenas zapatillas con buena tracción, ya que muchas rocas son resbaladizas. Protector solar es también indispensable, el sol pega fuerte y no hay muchas sombras durante el camino

The other 30% of the way are beaches and trails. Perfect for a better landscape

Climbing up to some of these trails will offer a better views of the bay and the offshore seascape. The trail is well marked by hikers to don’t get lost despite is really hard to.

Subiendo por algunos de sus senderos se podrán observar vistas de la bahía y sus costas marítimas. El camino está bien indicado por senderistas, lo cuál perderse es imposible


We spotted few sections with slight difficulty. Slippery rocks and slopes help to get out of the flat land routine, since basically all the way is quite similar.

Along the way there are several beaches where to rest, sunbath, swim or collect shells for your relatives. Seems that this coast is famous for its beaches and shells, so it’s also a good moment to get some to back home

Finishing the hike, we reach to the last beach before getting into the boat towards the port. The sunset made this place worthy to hike. Romantic moment whether you are with your relative or for some photo shoot to conquer romantically a guy/girl 😉

Durante la ruta encontramos algunas secciones con mayor dificultad de la esperada. Rocas resbaladizas e inclinadas no son buena combinación, pero ayuda a salir de la rutina de roca y roca en llano.

A lo largo del camino hay varias playas para descansar, tomar el sol, bañarse o recoger conchas marinas para familiares o amigos. Este lugar es bastante famoso por sus playas y conchas, por lo cuál es un buen momento para recoger algunas de recuerdo

Para acabar la marcha, llegamos a la última playa antes de ser recogidos por un barco para llevanos al puerto. El atardecer es digno de ver y hace que valga la pena haber venido, a pesar de que este lugar no es nada novedoso. Buen momento para demostrar tu romanticismo a tu pareja y también para una sesión de fotos


After a break and taking shots of the sunset, we ended near the port. We board to the boat before taking the bus towards Shenzhen

Acabados este momento, llegamos al final del puerto y embarcamos para coger el autobús de vuelta a Shenzhen


Journey from the starting point to the ending point

Trayecto desde la salida a la llegada


If you are looking for a different place to disconnect and away from mountains and city, maybe this place is not a bad choice after all.

Si buscas un lugar diferente para desconectar que no sea montaña ni ciudad, creo que este sitio no defraudaría
