We went to Yalong Bay as well since its not so far away from Sanya bay. Yalong Bay has more restaurants but is equally beautiful and scenic. I am sure every tourist will love this place. If I get a chance I will...More
Beach is about 40 minutes from the Phoenix Airport by car. It is a long one with clean white sand, no rocks. The water is so clean. There are determined areas for swimming protected from water sports equipment. There are umbrellas and sunbeds for free....More

I also went during the winter months... but since Sanya is located on the tropical part of Hainan island, the weather is not as cold as up north (e.g. Haikou). If you go during Chinese New Year (i.e. around early Feb next year), it should be warmer compared to in Dec. Not sure on how crowded it will be during CNY, but even if it is, it will consist mainly of non-locals, as most of them would be back in their hometowns to celebrate the Lunar New Year. Lastly, not sure about the snorkeling part... but the sea doesn't look as though it is suitable for snorkeling. In addition, I didn't see anyone using any snorkeling gear during my visit then.
