After months of repair following the destruction caused by super-typhoon Mangkhut, which landed on September 16, Xiaomeisha is preparing to reopen to the public.
According to Southern Metropolis Daily, the beach will reopen on December 1. That comes ahead of time as earlier this month it had been expected that Xiaomeisha would open on January 1, 2019 according to the beach's general manager Liu Xianxue in another report by Shenzhen News Network.
That's called Xiaomeisha Holiday Village and we were told by one representative that repair efforts went faster than planned and that the beach would in fact reopen on December 1.
In the immediate aftermath of Mangkhut, Liu hinted that the resort might not reopen until May of next year following the destruction of a 700-meter-long road that connected the resort to the outside world. The road was washed away, as well as three lifeguard towers built in the 1980s and over 100 palm trees which had been knocked down by the high wind.
During the time that repair work has been underway at the beachfront, various businesses in the Xiaomeisha area have been running as usual, including Xiaomeisha Ocean Park.
Elsewhere, there is still no exact news as to when Dameisha will reopen to the public. According to a report by Southern Metropolis Daily, small beaches along the shore have opened again, such as Dameisha Sheraton Resort, where the hotel helped to fund restoration efforts.
