Lying south of Beihai City in Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region, Weizhou is China's largest and youngest volcanic island in China. Weizhou island is 36 nautical miles away from the mainland. The total size is 24.7 square kilometers. The southern part of the island presents many examples of volcanic topography. The northern part of the island is lower, with sand dikes, beaches and rocks. Flatter, more open morphology predominates. On the seabed are corals with fabulously attractive colors.

Excellent weekend getaway. Not over developed. Nice little retreat from the busy city life.
