This is a man made island with flashy buildings that look good at night but has basically nothing to offer besides a local hotel and small walk. Very disappointing and not worth the effort if you ask me

It's beautiful artificial island in Sanya. Some people do wedding shooting there. It's nice to observe hotels shining at night.

These buildings are absolutely stunning in the day time. At night they come completely alive with lighting. They are my most photographed place on my trip.

Amazing views day and night. From the Sanya Bay side the light show that the buildings put on is spectacular and worth a visit to the Sanya Bay beach at night to see it.

Hi, since I am a first time visitor and I am not fluent speaker of chinese language. What shall I do to pass the bridge to the Sanya Phoenix Island, since I dont have any room card? Can anyone suggest me, please? What are the other ways to enter the island?

Ask hotel reception to arrange for you to be picked up from the gatehouse at bridge to island by security buggy. Important to have arrangement before arrival as v difficult to get through illogical process otherwise!
