Tianya Haijiao, Sanya

3.8
#2 of 86 in Beaches in China
Golden sands and swaying palms await at Tianya Haijiao, one of the country's southernmost points and a popular vacation spot. Stretching along the island's south coast, the area represents the "edge of the world" in local lore. Pay a visit and kick back on the sandy beach, enjoying the sweeping views out over the South China Sea, or don your swimsuit and splash around in the water. You can wander the surrounding waterfront stretch to discover a number of distinctive rocks and boulders, many of which feature inscriptions of famous Chinese poems referencing the cape. Keep your eyes peeled for the "sun and moon rocks" just offshore; supposedly representative of a husband and wife, the rocks indeed resemble two lovers intertwined. Using our custom trip planner, Sanya attractions like Tianya Haijiao can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

    Ends of the Earth is the first stop of the trip in Sanya, little attractions, instead of new development of Botanic Garden, you can walk slowly. Famous attractions are a few stones, is the landmark of Sanya, is also worth a look. "The Cape" stone at the Cape, you need to wade in the last photo. But the Cape is full of small stones, cracking feet.

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.
