Sanya Bay has a mediocre beach by international standards but if you have escaped the mainland China winter it’s a nice breakaway for relaxing on the beach. Going for long walks along the beach is my favorite. The probability of seeing many couples who are...More

If you look for a long wide beach where you are actually allowed to swim and you can even find a spot of privacy then Sanya Bay is the place. Might be a bit low key but drive all the way down towards the Airport...More

Sanya is a holiday place for Chinese and also quite a few Russians. Very hard to find anyone speaking English and their ATMs don't accept mastercard. We had huge difficulties because we arrived assuming we could get local currency from an ATM at the airport....wrong....More
