Zhoushan's fine reputation makes local people say, "Once you have visited Zhoushan, you will never again feel the need to visit another island". It is China’s largest archipelago, made up of around 400 islands. Tourists can appreciate the sand sculpture at Zhujiajian Island or go to swimming on one of the beaches of the Shengshi Islands. From Dongji (Farthest East) Island where the first rays of sunlight every day, every year and every century first hit the Chinese mainland, all the way to Qingbang (Green Waters) Island where you can see the “Potala Palace of the Sea”, the whole archipelago is full of amazing sites. Furthermore, the archipelago's Putuo Mountain has been known since antiquity as the "Ocean Kingdom of Buddhism" and the "Holy Land of the South China Sea". It is one of Chinese Buddhism's Four Great Mountains. Of course, if you come here in the Autumn, you can also can taste all kinds of affordable and delicious seafood.

Daqing Mountain is located at the southern tip of Zhujiajian Island and is its highest peak. Facing the sea, it provides stunning views across the water. Slightly off the beaten path, it is less visited than other locations in China. So, if you want to avoid the crowds while enjoying the beautiful beach and quaint culture of a local fishing town, Daqing mountain is highly recommended. Swim in the ocean, take a stroll on the beach, climb to the top of the mountains, or dine on a local fisherman's freshest catch.

Liujingtan is found on the eastern end of the island. It faces the reef cliffs of the East China Sea. Along the coast you will find a regular plank road. This road does not have a lot of vegetation stretching along the side of it. Along the cliff you will encounter a white lighthouse with a bit of island flare. If you take the cliff path all the way down to where it meets the sea, that would be a great spot to enjoy a nice view of the water while the sun rises. If you walk along the sea, you will be able to spot a section of the asphalt road that leads to the scenic spot.
