Dongshan Pearl Island

Dongshan covers an area of ​​250,000 square meters and has a breeding area of ​​over 2,500 mu. Whilst oft translated as ‘island’, it is part of the mainland peninsula. The quiet bay in the north is calm and fresh, and it is a natural harbor for breeding seawater pearls.

The sea pearls produced here are large, round, with less defects, high smoothness, fine texture, and uniform color. They are high-quality “Nanzhu” system. According to historical records, Dongshan has been rich in pearls since ancient times, showing the long history of Dongshan pearls.

There is a mall for pearls here and tourism to this part centers on the pearl industry although there is a small beach here too. There is also the Daya Bay Marine Biology Research Station (CN: 中国科学院大亚湾海洋生物综合实验站) and a large resort, the Dongshan Pearl Island Resort. Nearby is Mt. Qiniang.

You can also take a speedboat to the as yet undeveloped Dongjia Bay and enjoy the beach and nature.
