Surrounded by islands, blue waters, and golden sands, Yantai—meaning “smoky tower”—is a popular port city located in China’s northeastern Shandong Province, nestled along the Bohai Sea and Laizhou Bay. The Sheraton Yantai Golden Beach Resort is conveniently located across from Golden Beach, in the Yantai Economic and Technological Development Zone (YEDA). We are 15 kilometers from downtown, and just 25 kilometers from Yantai Penglai International Airport (YNT), .
There is a wealth of sites to visit in Yantai, including Yangma Island, famous for its scenery and seafood; the T-shaped Kongtong Island, which is surrounded by small islands about 10 kilometers from the city; and Kunyu Mountain, home to lush trees, clear streams, gorges, and waterfalls. Yantai Hill, boasting panoramic city and sea views, and the Tashan Scenic Area, noted for its Buddhist significance and architecture, are also popular. Or, take a day trip to the northern tip of the Jiaodong Peninsula to see the picturesque ancient city of Penglai. Notable attractions there include the Penglai Pavilion, the Ancient Ship Museum, and Penglai Water City.
Wine enthusiasts should head to the Changyu Wine Museum. Located at the former site of the eponymous wine company that dates back to 1892, it features displays, an underground cellar, and a tasting area. Also colorful is the Yantai Museum—filled with exquisite carvings of birds, flowers, animals, and figures from Chinese legends. Entertainment for all can be found at Binhai Strip, a popular tourist area on Binhai Road.
