Wang Hai Yuan Hotel and Café (望海苑)

Wang Hai Yuan Hotel and Café (望海苑)

This simple establishment has one of the most enviable locations in Kulangsu: right on Gang Zai Hou beach, the island’s largest and most frequented, but on a calmer side of it, not far from Guan Hai Yuan Harbor.

The café on the ground floor is worthy place for an air-conditioned beach break, whether it’s for coffee, a beer, or a simple meal. Facilities are rustic by Western standards, but prices are reasonable and the vistas from the sea-view category rooms are amongst the most escapist on the island.

Address: West Side Gangzaihou Beach, Gulangyu Island, Siming District, Xiamen City, China
