Goddess of the Sea statue

So crowded especially on the weekends, but definitely worth seeing. The charge for the park and statue is about 150 rmb.

I visited this striking statue and park and was very impressed by it. There were a lot of people there but it was fairly spread out and although I didn't go inside the statue where there were queues of people, it didn't otherwise feel too crowded. Although allow time for queuing for tickets. And if you're adventurous, try the green... More

This is our second visit to the Park. The place is huge. We use the tram service to move us around and to save time. We need to queue in order to enter the temple and to take a lift inside the temple that will take visitors to the level where one can touch Guan Yin Bodhisattva's feet. The view... More

Unfortunatly we decided to visit this park the last day of our holidays in Sanya, the weather was horrible.... monsoon was coming 1nd it kept raining all day long. The park is very big and the view really spectacular.

Yes this is a commercialised area but that is the way it is in China. The cost 121 rmb. However I was here all day. There is a forest hike to top of a mountain. Nanshan temple and many other temples. The huge goddess of the sea statue and great open spaces to sit and think and look at. The... More

I travelled an hour there and it costs about US 20 to enter the premise. You walk across a bridge to the bottom of the budda and enters a temple like hall...you can go to the next level. But you have to pay for the incenses...nothing is included in the entry fee. Be sure to bring a hat because you... More

This breathtaking statue is really a great sight and if you catch it on a clear blue sky day the contrast is beautiful between white and blue. Worth a long ride and plenty of other sites around to explore too

There were several temples in the Park. The most visited was the large buddha (and the raison d'etre) where we took an elevator to about 3/4 way, then the rest of by climbing the stairs. The view around the base of statue was beautiful. We hired a cart to take us from temple to temple - worth the money spent.... More

If you need a break from the beaches of Hainan, this is a big park to visit. We could see the main Buddha figure during our landing approach already. It is built into the sea, with three faces facing into different directions. It is situated in a well-kept huge park. Internal shuttles are available, you have to buy tickets for... More

The dominant feature and reason we visited is obviously the 3 sided Guan Yin, (sea goddess I think?) which towers over the park and surrounding area. After a walk of about 40 minutes arriving at the base you get the scale of this impressive statue, apparently higher than the Statue of Liberty. It's relatively newly built, around 30 years old...
