I was pretty underwhelmed by this place. I went with several friends and we arrived mid day. You are charged to just get on the island and must have that ticket in order to access the beach. We had arranged a hotel night on the hill overlooking the main beach. That was a dump and if I could find the name of the hotel, I would review that too. The area looks like it might have been nice about 10 years ago, but has faded with neglect. Shops and restaurants are run down and overpriced. My friend was charged 40¥ for a beer that normally is 4¥. There were lots of umbrellas for sitting in the shade with plastic chairs that you could move around. I did like that they had several men patrolling to pick up litter. The area for swimming was pretty crowded and my friends were scolded for paddling around outside the designated area. We took the shuttle farther along the island to a less populated beach that included a long, steep set of stairs for part of our visit. Was totally puffed climbing back up. Toilets were OK for squat toilets, be sure to bring your own paper. Guests were supposed to leave the beach after 6pm. By the time we got to the island, checked in and had a horrible lunch, that left us with less than 4 hours. They should set tickets up for longer than a day when you are staying on the island. The tickets did include an ice experience. You had to pay an extra 20¥ to rent a coat and they wouldn't let you in unless you had a coat on. Never mind that we were wearing flip flops. Cold toes anyone. The little kids looked cute in their coats which all seemed to have arms down to the floor. The ice experience was a large warehouse with many ice walls, igloos and a couple of ice slides. Fun for the family, but a bit lame for me. Outside the ice cave is a food court and the hamburger place was absolutely awful. The ice place had a cartoon theme with .Disney characters from Finding Nemo. Not sure if it was licensed from Disney as there was no Disney name. Did not find any English speakers in any of our encounters, and was fortunate to have local friends along to make arrangements and guide us. We all walked away feeling slightly grossed out. Avoid this place.
