Qinzhou, located in southern Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region, borders the Beibu Gulf north of regional capital Nanning. Flanked by Beihai and Yulin District to the east and Fangchenggang to the west, Qinzhou overlooks the expansive Qinzhou Bay.

The 908 square km bay boasts bountiful marine life. With plentiful sunlight, ideal water temperatures, and abundant plankton, the area nurtures fish, seafood, and migratory birds. Dotted with over 300 islands, Qinzhou's 520 mile coastline has earned it the nickname "Home of the Dolphins."

Geologically diverse and complex, Qinzhou lies on the southern edge of the South China Fold Belt. Well-developed ancient Cambrian shale and intrusive igneous granite and diorite define the landscape. Moderate seismic activity stems from extensive folding and faulting.

With rich biodiversity on sea and land, Qinzhou offers natural wonders from dolphin sightings to island explorations. Discover this scenic coastal city where mountains meet the waves.
