Linghai (Chinese: 凌海; pinyin: Línghǎi) is a county-level city in the west of Liaoning province, Northeast China. It was called Jinxian or Jin County (Chinese: 锦县) until 1993, when it was reorganized to a county-level city and renamed Linghai. Lying on the west (right) bank of the Daling River, which flows into the Liaodong Bay near the city, it is under the administration of the prefecture-level city of Jinzhou, the seat of which is 21 kilometres (13 mi).
There are three subdistricts, 11 towns, seven townships, and one ethnic township under the city's administration.
Linghai is served by Linghai South railway station, an infill station on the Qinhuangdao–Shenyang passenger railway and the southern terminus of the Chaoyang–Linghai high-speed railway.
Jinzhou Bay Airport is located here.
