Take China’s longest over-water cable car ride and arrive at Nanwan Monkey Island. The ride spans 2,138 m (7,014 ft) and will take you to the natural reserve for macaque monkeys. Around 2,000 monkeys live in the reserve, making it China’s largest area for raising and training monkeys. See the animals walking freely around the island and interact with them, or watch one of the shows with trained monkeys. Take care of your belongings, since monkeys tend to steal them to get food.

  • Monkey Island which is located on the peninsula of Nanvan. There are two ways to get on the water and in the air. Choose the second option for tourists))) cableway, the dostoprimechatelnosts views of the fishing villages on the water, picturesque groves. The island itself is not large but it is inhabited by so many monkeys they were everywhere, hanging on trees, bathed in the pool, go on the roads, harass people with thoughts that would steal and than eat))) have a circus where all the talents suggest monkeys and help him eat goat and parrot "kassir"est even jail for not obeying the monkey thieves)))

  • This is a fun place to visit. You can take either boat or cable car to get there. There were a lot of monkeys and several shows. It is kind of small place.  more »
  • We started from our hostel in Sanya from. It takes by bus, train and taxi two hours to 60km from Monkey Island. The entrance fee was higher than Yuan that are expected at 151, but there's a student discount. Always be sure in China show its Studiausweis. Most are discounted. The monkeys are naughty and can be fed with there to buying food. It takes a great cable car back to the entrance, which provides stunning views of the island.
