Tianya Haijiao, Sanya

(3.8/5 based on 950+ reviews on the web)
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. Add Tianya Haijiao and other attractions to your Sanya trip itinerary using our Sanya vacation trip planner.

  • 里边挺脏的我觉得,就是几个石头以及诗人的诗让人都趋之若鹜。真的不觉得值,前几年路过也都没进去转,而且那时候觉得没有这么商业化挺好的,这次带父母去了,里边海边超脏,我觉得真不如去其他海滩玩,干净舒服,进去就为看两块石头,合照拍个影那真是不值得!当然专门去为了留念例外!  more »
