    When the beach is closed and rescue workers under Chinese rules not allowed smooth sea there is a solution. If you go to the right from the Hotel Sanya Holilej in the direction of Mariotte, you will encounter the waters for training scuba divers. Evening classes at low tide there is and you can swim. If you are afraid to chop and rocky shore legs you will need shoes for swimming. Bottom water area clean, fish along the shore of clowns and crabs. But no lifeguards.

Where to stay in Sanya

A popular beach resort, Sanya's premier places to stay all crowd as close to the beach as possible. Luxury hotels with abundant grounds, large pools, and fine-dining restaurants can be found on the main beach road, along with a scattered few standard options. Budget-conscious travelers will be relieved to find a good number of small inns and hotels located in the alleys and side streets just back from the main beach road. Take a look around the coastline for a number of clusters of upmarket hotels in more secluded bays, usually occupying large plots by the sea.
