Just off the Airport Expressway, the Crab Island complex is worth wandering around for a day. It not only houses an inexpensive amusement park (98RMB), it also has its own man-made sandy beach with a decent-sized wave pool, water slides and a children's play area. Fake palm trees add a classy, tropical touch, as does the giant mural of dolphins leaping through the ocean – well, maybe not, but we still love it. Sure, the beach can get jammers on the weekends and good-weather days, but where in the city doesn't?
Entry costs 60RMB or 40RMB for children under 140cm.
