There is a beach 10 mins away from city center. But unlike other places in Pingtan, this beach wasn't well maintained, there are some dirt on the sand. But still, the sand is very soft. Suggest go there during the night, least people there and you can have BBQ dinner just next to the sea. :)
During the day, there are various program organized on the beach. Such as horse riding..etc
PingTan is the biggest island of FuJian province, views are located in different directions of island. Normally it takes 30-50 mins to get to the destination depends on the distance. Immortal Valley is located in north of the island. I like the cliff, see and pine there. It is not yet a populate tourist sight in Pingtan, few visitors only, so it is a nice, quiet place to relax.
They are two rocks formed by marine abrasion, the higher one is 33 meters and the lower one is 11 meters. It looks like a sailboat, so it's named the sailboat rock. Quite impressive to see it close.
There are no buses between the sights, and don't expect to find the place easily even if you are driving your own. The direction is very complex, even more in some area if you let your taxi driver leave, it won't be easy to find another taxi to return. the best way I suggest is you make a deal with taxi driver, that he will responsible for taking to all the places you want to go and give him a fix price per day.
I thought Pingtan is not a very popular place for tourists, I think it would be enough just go there and find a hotel to stay. But I was really wront!! Although there are plenty of hotels in the city center, but all of them are full! My friends and me walked in the city about an hour and couldn't find a hotel to stay. And if you can book in advance, price is much lower. We finally found a hostel to stay, the room was in really bad contidion but we didn't had a chance. :(
