Waking early to watch the sunrise at sea is nothing short of amazing. The moonlight softens as waves hit the beach in a quiet rhythm. All of a sudden, a red glow from the sun spreads across the sky and lights up the sea. In seconds, everything brightens. A new day begins.

In Shanghai, Nanhuizui Sea Park is the perfect place to experience this.

The park stretches across 14,200 square meters (1.42 hectares) in Pudong New Area, facing the main district of Shanghai’s Lingang New Town to the northwest. At the Yangtze River, it overlooks the Pacific Ocean.

According to 2,000-year-old historical records, the Yangtze River once flowed southward and joined the Qiantang River here, giving the area the name Nanhuizui (southern meeting point). In 1986, the Ming government built a fortification here to keep out Japanese pirates. The fortress later grew into a town.
