Jinshan City Beach in shanghai

Jinshan City Beach, a National AAAA Scenery Area, is a rare thing in the vast sprawling metropolis of Shanghai, a man-made delight of sand and seawater.
Visitors can sit and watch the sun sinking into the sea while sampling some of the freshest seafood in the city. Jinshan is set to become the city's biggest seafood market, with seafood coming from Shandong, Liaoning and Zhejiang provinces.

To the east of the beach, a 400-meter landscaped footpath has been established. For more "beach fun" at the man-made beach, amusement park rides, including a Ferris wheel, have been added.

The beach also holds a summer carnival including music live shows.

A seafood town and market -- offering fresh seafood from up and down China's coast -- will be opened at Jinshan City Beach for the World Expo 2010. Covering 3.36 hectares at the intersection of Tingwei and Huhang roads, the town is set to become the city's biggest seafood market, with a total investment of 250 million yuan (US$36.8 million).

The seafood town will become a high-end marine business and recreation area offering dining, beach tourism and Hangzhou Bay cruising. It's expected to be a hot destination for visitors to Expo Shanghai. The town will offer fresh seafood from Qingdao, Shandong Province; Dalian, Liaoning Province; Ningbo, Zhejiang Province; and other coastal cities.

An area of 2 hectares near the beach will become the site of a five-star yacht club and hotel with an investment of 600 million yuan. For more "beach fun" at the man-made beach, the Jinshan Coastline Development Management Committee plans to set up more amusement park rides, including a Ferris wheel. A gallery featuring local sea legends will be built.

The 120,000sqm standard parking lot at the eastern entry of the beach can house 430 cars and 30 buses. From 2008, all the vehicles coming to the beach will have to park there. Cars will be charged at 4 yuan (58 US cents) per hour while buses will pay 5 yuan per hour. The 1,100sqm bathhouse at the northern beach area can accommodate more than 3,500 people. Clean public toilets are available in the service center in the east as well as in the middle and west of the beach.
