This reserve offers a great antidote to the hustle and bustle of Shenzhen (not to mention the city's many theme parks). Rent a bike or do some bird watching or just spend time on the boardwalk admiring the vistas of the city. It is the only nature reserve in an urban center in all of China.

When the weather is good (I mean blue sky and high visibility) and the tide is high, the place is so beautiful. Otherwise you would expect smoggy sky with stinky seawater (because of the mud revealed after low tide) Anyways, it is very likely to get a lot of amazing summer breezes and out of this world pictures from May...

Love biking here. Very clean and well run by the park staff. A gem to find in China as some places are filthy. There are park guards in many places and it is very safe here. Bicycling is allowed on certain paths depending on the time of day and the guards are good at keeping them that way and letting... More

The coastal line between Futian and Shekou is developed a lot lately and the Mangrove Nature Reserve is the best part of it. During weekdays it's a nice getaway from the busy city where you can stroll along the water or rent a bicycle and enjoy the video. On clear days you can even see Hong Kong. However on weekends...
