West Island, Sanya

(3.4/5 based on 130+ reviews on the web)
Shaped like a hawksbill turtle, covered with palm trees, and encircled with sandy beaches and rocky coves, West Island offers many swimming and diving opportunities and a variety of watersports. Home to generations of anglers, the island features special platforms where you can fish from a private box, while sipping tea and listening to music, day or night. Ride on a banana boat, go parasailing, surfing, canoeing, or explore colorful coral reefs. When you work up an appetite, grab a bite at one of the restaurants serving fresh seafood and snacks. Rent a yacht to explore the surroundings, or ride a cable car that will take you to a nearby islet with intact natural scenery. Use our Sanya trip itinerary builder to arrange your visit to West Island and other attractions in Sanya.

  • 到西島來,要先搭個10多分鐘的渡輪,會暈船的人,如果遇到風浪大,可能會覺得不適。 西島其實就是個適合從事水上活動或放空的小島,租輛腳踏車或協力車在島上漫步也是個選擇,但也只有一小時時間。 島上餐飲水準不佳,除非你要從事水上活動或在沙灘做日光浴,不然這裡不是個值得待上一整天的地方。
