If you live in Shanghai long enough & long for fresh air, nature & the beach I would recommend it. Beaches are long & clean & not crowded. If you rent bikes you can get to see the entire island in a day. For history lovers there are a bunch of pillboxes left from WWII around the beach, some connected... More

Even in the off-season, this trip was worth the weekend. It was quick and easy to get there though public transportation. There are plenty of hotel options. We stayed in a very spacious room with private bathroom for 150RMB. There are beaches, delicious seafood and even some great hiking spots!

Shanghai's most accessible island with a beach has to be Shengsi Island. After a two hour bus ride from Nanpu Bridge to a SE port (from what may become the world's largest shipping port), you can take a fast ferry (1 hr) or slow ferry (2 hr.) If time is on your side, take the slow ferry - it is... More

So I rated it a four ... The background is that this is not an easy travel destination if you don't speak Chinese or are very well prepared; and once there it totally depends on what your expectations are. The review below is more to let you know what to prepare if you decide to go. If you don't speak... More
