Facing SE, Nanwan, aka Binglang Beach, stands out as a shapely right reefbreak with nice curves and a sculpted face, but only on low-mid tide and S-SW swells. If the sand mix is just right, barrels are a given when it’s bigger, which should help clear the water of weekend learner crowds.

Summer typhoons should awaken a few other reefs in the bay (Windmills, Houbihu Harbour, Banana Bay) where the barrels and the coral reef are sharper. The nuclear plant discharges cooling water into the bay!
