The Tianchengtai Resort
The Tianchengtai Resort is located on Beiquan Beach to the west of Wushi Port, a national fishing port at Beibu Bay. Sandy deposits, accumulated from years of tidal sands and wind, form the forefront of the Wushi Fishing Port, which looks like a natural terrace, thus the name “Tian Cheng Tai”, meaning naturally formed terrace. It is about 70 kilometers away from Leizhou, a national historically and culturally well-known city, and 140 kilometers away from Zhanjiang. It is a conveniently accessible natural island with beautiful scenery.
The resort, embraced by the sea, has a total area of more than 600 mu (40 hectares) and boasts a beach stretching for 4 kilometers. The white sands are thick and soft. Tourism experts rate it as one of the best beaches in the world.
The resort faces the Beibu Gulf (the Gulf of Tonkin). With clean seawater, small waves, a peaceful bay free from undercurrents and sharks, and mild temperature throughout the year (20 C-29 C), it is a seaside bathing reservation suitable for swimming all the year round.
There are lush coconut trees, orchards, various flowers and carpet-like lawns in the resort, with the green coverage rate above 90 percent. The mild climate, and pleasant environment makes it an ideal choice for accommodation during your visit in Zhangjiang.
According to geological surveys, the 600-meter-deep underground hot spring has abundant resources of water, which contains such minerals as sulfide and calcium oxide, and has an average temperature of 45 C, thus having a remarkable curative effective for various kinds of skin diseases and arthritis.
Near the seashore of the resort, there are many colorful coral reefs under the sea. The resort is famous for its glamorous fishing villages and serves genuine specialties of the South China Sea, such as fresh and lively seafood, dry fishes or shrimps, and owns a high-quality marine farm and pearl processing factory. With beautiful tropical scenery, the charming sea and enticing beaches, intoxicating holiday atmosphere and unique fishing villages, it is called “the Penglai Island in the Beibu Gulf with Coconut Trees”.
