You need a permit to drive to the beaches in Shenzhen on weekends
- Shenzhen has beautiful beaches outside the city. Dameisha, Xiaomeisha, and Xichong (best in my opinion with blue water and white soft sand)
- However for traffic control purposes, you need to apply in advance a special permit if you want to drive to any of those beaches, otherwise it would cost you 3 points deduction and a 300rmb fine!
- You can apply for the permit online or via wechat.
- Alternatively, you can also take bus from different parts of the city to the beach areas. They take a little longer than driving but not by much
