Sanya Bay, Sanya
(3.2/5 based on 280+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • We lived in 10 minutes from Sanya Bay. And immediately after his arrival the first thing went on this beach. Water seemed cool (and as it turned out, it really is an order of magnitude cooler than, for example, Dadunhae). Very few people in the water. Russian or Europeans in General almost anyone. Chinese a lot, but they are all "sunbathing" on the beach. Under parasols and completely hidden under the clothes. We feel somehow uncomfortably when everyone on the coast, and you're hardly alone in water. The water is clean! shore too. Especially we liked to go to Sanya Bay in the evenings when the light show on the island of Phoenix. and with Sanya Bay all is perfectly visible!

  • tender white sun, constantly changing pattern of clouds, a moderate breeze and curious Chinese children

  • I tried to swim first day i came to Sanya, but there was a lot of seaweed in the water so i didn't do it at the end. But there is great view of Phoenix Island from the beach!
