 Additional Information

Any system in the South China Sea will generate waves, the tide movement is huge so there is always beach break with tidal movement. The island is not very big 25 km from north to south, easy to check multiple beaches in a short time. Winter is extremly windy. We have broken in the moto taxi guys so if you turn up they will know what you want and take you to the right beach.

Atmosphere

Locals very friendly, a crowd will gather to watch you surf and when you exit the water they may invite you to their house for tea. Plenty to explore during the day if its flat, nightlife is suprisingly fun, accomodation cheap and seafood right off of the boat.

which beach is the best for surfing on Dongshan Island - so, where should i start with? Which beach on the island is the best for surfing?

By djmckeever@american-joe.com , 12-05-2006

Dong Shan in '89 - I loved reading about surfing in DongShan. I was there several times from 1989-1990 and, being a So Cal native, had to surf it then. It sounds like things have developed a lot. When I was there, there was one guest house and one brand new big hotel. It's a great place that will probably be of the beaten path for a ehile yet, eh?
