West Island, Sanya

(130+ reviews on the web)
National Park Nature / Park
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.
