Xichong (Chinese: 西冲 or 西涌) is a scenic spot in the Longgang District of Shenzhen City, Guangdong Province, China located in the southern part of the Dapeng Peninsula, facing the South China Sea with Dapeng Bay on the west and Daya Bay on the East.

Xichong is located within the Dapeng National Park, a recreational and scenic part of the city. In 2006 Chinese National Geographic named the Dapeng Peninsula as one of the ten most beautiful parts of China. To its north is the Qiniangshan, the second highest mountain in the city. To access the 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).
