“Normal beach.”
Review of Yalong Bay

Yalong Bay
Ranked #4 of 90 things to do in Sanya
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 19 November 2017 via mobile

Not a very tropical feeling beach, just normal. No white sand, no restaurants at all. Only few spaces for take a bath. Bath is forbidden after 18.00. Usually overcrowded.

The place itself is pretty nice, even if below the stndards of most Mediterranean beaches. Hype apart, if yuo aren't Chinese you porbably wouldn't enjoy the place much. Nobody at the beach speaks any other language than Mandarine or local dialects (while in the city itself it is easy to find people speaking Russian, for instance), so the most interesting activities will be a challenge to understand, if they let you in. Swimming is barely possible, first because there's a very small stripe of sea you can use for that, while the rest is just for motorboats, and this ludicrously small space is overcrowded with people who probably are more afraid of the water than of the boats themselves. If you even try some apnea a ward will come to call you off.
Frankly, Hainan was great, but not because of Yalong Bay.

Excellent hotels and restaurants are crowded in this area. Beaches are perfect. The water quality is better than other areas in Sanya.

With a little bit of fantasy and some foresight into the next decade... this could become Waikiki II in the next years... just a little bit greener and more peaceful

too far....I stayed near the sea.
I visited by taxi to say that this is beautiful.
But what is ... different?
