Located in the eastern shore of Qingdao City in east China, the Old Stone Man Beach is renowned for its spectacular landscape and fine-grain sand. This beach is named after a 17-meter prominent rock in the sea near the beach. The rock is said to resemble an old man sitting by the sea and waiting for the return of his daughter who was abducted by the Dragon King.
