Xichong (Chinese: 西冲 or 西涌) is a scenic spot in Longgang District, Shenzhen, China. It is located in the south part of the Dapeng Peninsula, facing the South China Sea with Mirs Bay on the west and Daya Bay on the East.
Xichong attracts tourists mainly because of its long beach and surf. It is in eastern Shenzhen in the Dapeng National Park, a popular recreational and scenic part of the city. In 2006 Chinese National Geographic named Dapeng Peninsula as one of the ten most beautiful parts of China. To its north is Qiniang Mountain, the second highest mountain of the city. Since this is one of the least populated and most remote parts of Shenzhen, it is not easy to access Xichong Beach. Private cars can be hired in Dapeng or Nan'ao, and regular buses travel from these towns to Dongchong and Xichong Beaches (M231 and M232). There is also a popular hiking trail running down the coast between Xichong and Dongchong (approx 10km).
Xichong and its sister beach Dongchong are popular with backpackers, hikers and surfers.
