Sanya Bay, Sanya

#3 of 16 in Nature in Sanya
Water Body Nature / Park
Relax, recline, and play during a visit to Sanya Bay, a relatively quiet strip of coastline offering a wealth of space for recreational activities. Lying just to the west of the city center, the beach here remains less crowded than others in the area due to less inviting sand and water conditions. It does boast a green belt curving around it, however, with an abundance of tropical vegetation and grass. Plus, the bay offers sights of authentic local life, where residents play cards under the shade of coconut trees, and fishers pull in their nets. Before you head to Sanya, plan trip itinerary details with our user-friendly Sanya tour planner, to make sure you see all that Sanya has to offer, including Sanya Bay.

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.
