Shandong Rongcheng Chengshantou—— Hailu Island "Seagull Paradise"
shandong

 Chengshantou: It is located at the easternmost point of Chengshan Mountain and across the sea from Korea. Known as China's "Cape of Good Hope", it is the first spot in China where people first see the sun rise in the morning.

Chengshantou covers an area of one square miles and its highest point measures 656 feet above sea level. Here, mountains stretch for miles. Precipitous cliffs rise steeply beside the boundless surging sea. This majestic and imposing sight has attracted many celebrities for sightseeing. During the early days of the Qin Dynasty (221 BC-206 BC), the Emperor Qin Shihuang  once visited the cape in search of elixirs. Many historic relics were left, including a broken stele on which was carved six characters - "Tian Jin Tou Qin Dong Men" (The End of the Heaven – The East Gate of Qin).
Around Chengshantou, there are also some interesting sights worth visiting. Hailu Island is known as "Seagull Paradise".  Each spring, thousands of seagulls inhabit the area and lay their eggs. Piebald Colored Rock is a huge rock formation set back 55 yards from coastline. The Wild Animal Zoo has various lovely animals that tourists enjoy seeing. 
 Birds fly above Hailu Island, Weihai City of east China's Shandong Province, Hailu Island, only 2 sea miles away from the land, is an uninhabited island and paradise for the seagulls. Thousands of seagulls live and breed their babys here.

Tip: There are dangerous riptides in this area so you shouldn't swim here.
