Once on the mainland in Guangdong province, spots are few and far between as the sea has only recently receded, leaving a super indented coastline with flat rocks and myriads of granite islets. Eastwards, at Xi-Chong and Dongchong, good longboard waves peel lazily down some rivermouth sculpted sandbars, plus there is lots of rocky coast to explore.

There’s also good clean beach-hut accommodation and restaurants at Dongchong.
