Lively beach area. The actual beach and sea is pretty good, it is blue most the time. Lots of bars and restaurants some of which are over priced. Mix of Chinese, Russians, and the odd back-packer. If you want a quiet, relaxing beach suggest you...More

Nice beach. Don't understand why some people complained about it. If you ate an overpriced pizza or beer you probably did see the price before ordering it. You can get a bowl of great noodles off the main road for only 15 rmb...very cheap and...More

This is quite a nice place to relax, but not really as good as one may think. It's particularly attractive in the winter, since it's still warm here, while it's snowing up north. For those into water sports, like surfing, jet skiing, and para sailing,...More

The bay is all full of bars and restaurants and almost every area is covered by their umbrellas and beds. They will charge you 100RMB the least and can not find any shade other way. The bay is pretty and the water great though

This area is actually for people love going out I think. At night, it can be very noise, lots of elders are dancing in the square with loud music. Personally I just can not enoy this kind of place as it turns out quite annoying.

Nothing is free on the beach but for the sand and the sea. Everything comes at rip-off prices. The beach beds are 50 rmb, you can't wash off the sand or even change there, you gotta pay, it's ridiculous. The beach is not clean, very...More

This area of sanya is not so much expansive, very convenient for food, shopping, and not far from other beachs (yalong is 30min by bus, 10rmb on line 25). We were on Hawaii Hotel, and we will come back there in the next few years...More
