A Weekend in Beach Paradise

Rainy season is coming to an end, so Good Times by Cycle Canton has prepared an amazing trip for you to the beach! You do not need to go to Thailand or the Philippines for white beaches, clear water, spectacular views, and beach fun. There is this one small place in Guangdong too...

Come with us for a two day-one night weekend adventure, and enjoy beach life in a chilled little village. Away from mass tourism and hotels, this area offers relaxed vibes, and a surfing, chill lifestyle. Everything for an amazing beach trip is included, including an island trip by speed boat, a beach party, a coastal hike, floaties and games, and plenty of options for other activities. Private coach transport is arranged from Guangzhou. No cycling this weekend!

WHAT YOU WILL EXPERIENCE

Leaving Guangzhou early on Saturday 22 May, the private coach arrives at our cosy surfers hotel around noon. Following a lunch at your own convenience, we take you to the prettiest beach to enjoy the afternoon. Swim, chill, surf, tan, para-sail, SUP, and join a party at a beach club!

On Sunday 23 May, we head to a different beach by private coach. You may dive straight in and enjoy the beach and sea, or you can join us for a hike with spectacular views of the bay, beach and rocky coastline that has some resemblance to the Italian Amalfi coast or California's Highway 1 coastline. In the early afternoon we take a speed boat and head for a deserted island for a relaxing afternoon with swimming, snorkelling, drinks and snacks. Back on the mainland we take a quick shower and board the bus for the return to Guangzhou. We expect to be back in Guangzhou around 7:30pm.
