I love walking and so the trek from my hotel of 6+ kilometres had me hanging out for this beach. It was a pretty hot and sticky day, so the swim was also something on my to do list as Sanya Bay near my accommodations...More

The bay is all full of bars and restaurants and almost every area is covered by their umbrellas and beds. They will charge you 100RMB the least and can not find any shade other way. The bay is pretty and the water great though

This area is actually for people love going out I think. At night, it can be very noise, lots of elders are dancing in the square with loud music. Personally I just can not enoy this kind of place as it turns out quite annoying.

The sea and sands were so so only. Quite crowded with tourists and locals swimming Had a high expectation cos it's said that it is the second most beautiful beach in Hainan Island. Actually, there's not really anything to rave about.

It is really run down and shabby. The board walk is coming apart and hard to walk on. Almost no toilet facilities. One woman with two little girls just let them go to the toilet in the sand and then kicked sand over it. Maybe...More
