Attractive sea views, clear water, white sand, ridges and spectacular stones make the Clearwater Bay a special place. Designed by leading sports teams, the world's first combination half-marathon track of 11 km of beach and about 10 km of roadway is on 12 km of Lingshui’s most beautiful coastline.

According to the organizers, Clearwater Bay is one of the three rare beaches where the sand can "sing". The other two with that special charm are located in Hawaii and Australia.
