Beacon - Dawan (大灣墩臺) Possible location [????- ]

Beacon - Defu (疊福墩臺) possible location [????- ]

The location is a pure speculation based on the descriptions of the list of Beacons in the Peng Cheng Museum 鵬城博物館.  Would gladly be corrected by knowledgeable persons already been there.  I believe the location is possible because from Google Earth there appeared to be traces of a very wide path laid by big rocks right at a spur around 250m, overlooking Mirs Bay, just as what's been described by the Peng Cheng Museum.  It also mentioned the said beacon was in retangular shape, built by stones.

Beacon - Dameisha 大梅沙墩臺 or Yantian 鹽田墩臺﹐ Shenzhen [????- ]

In reference to this blog entry, with GPS coordinates provided by blogger and appeared to be taken by experts.  They had not determined if it is Yantian 鹽田 or Dameisha 大梅沙 Beacon though,

I had been to the beach of Dameisha, on the way to Da Peng Walled City back in the 1980's, but I was not aware of such a beacon back then.

This is also being marked on Google Maps, as Gupaotai (古砲臺)。  However I am uncertain if the Google marker is corract.  Might have to go there to take a look myself later.

Hi there,

The location is approximate.  I have never been there.  From Google Earth there isn't much left of it.  It will warrant a field trip as it is quite convenent since the subway system was inaugurated.  For those who had been there you are welcomed to correct the marker.

Thanks & Best Regards,
