On Lianyungang Island, there are a couple of nice hotels near the beach. As of May 2012, prices were approximately 150RMB. Service wasn't too great, but location is fantastic. There are some mediocre and over priced restaurants in the vicinity, but they have a nice view. There are some local seafood restaurants nearby. These are also overpriced but there are too many of them, so you can bargain over the price. Get here from Lianyungang dong (east) station. It's about a 30-40RMB taxi ride. There are buses available in the daytime.
