Even though Xiamen prides itself on its wealth of pristine beaches, it still offers a salt water alternative that has been known to cause even sound-minded adults to display behavior that borders on "frolicking." Massive waterslides, some of which that oddly resemble the large intestine, zip bathers into huge pristine pools. There is also a wading area for kids, a makeshift beach, and even lap areas for serious swimmers. Lifeguards assure customer safety. If you curse crowds, it is best to avoid this fun-center during the height of summer.
