West Island, Sanya
(3.5/5 based on 120+ 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.

  • To arrive at the pier of the Nishijima and immediately welcomed by a lot of fish. Had ever been so much in the seaside resort, but it is the style of the resort.

  • 西岛的景色真的真的非常美,好多新人在这里拍婚纱照,我做快艇上岛,不过那些娱乐项目有些小贵,水很清澈,就说太阳太晒了,喜欢这里,下次有机会还会来的。 
  • China .... an amazing country! ... on Hainan Island was my third trip to China, because China is very much interesting and surprising and one journey, of course, can not do ... Sanya has surprised and entertained, even when our plane began to decline. among the boundless blue sea we saw beautiful white statue, as I later learned, visited the Buddhist complex that this goddess Guan Yin. but this is another story ... and I want to share their impressions about the Island West Island. I went there on a speedboat, which flew on the waves that make the video was hard! ... Here, and the island. immediately strikes a huge seashell. on the island there is a possibility to do any kinds of water recreation. I prefer to walk around the island, more precisely on the two islands, which are connected by a dam. After reviewing the proposed water pleasures, I sat in a small bus and went to the little island. a tiny island covered with forest, struck by its beauty, it is not surprising, therefore, that the islet chose newlyweds to conduct photo shoots ... by the way, every year in China runs a contest for the most beautiful bride! ... Strolling along the promenade I, of course, has witnessed such a photo shoot ... then rose on the old stone stairs to the Hill and ended up at the bridge connecting the two hills of the island and a huge golden calf ... view from the observation deck offers stunning! ... making a great photo, I go back across the bridge to the big island. and here I got interested in the challenges along the way shells. and, naturally, I start every photograph, because they were all different! ... and, here, going a long way, dovolno photographing shells, I understand that there is no end to them. and, behold, here speaking excitement! ... but when I approached the latest rakuškam from excitement has disappeared, and it was only a stubborn desire to convey his intention before the end of ... more than 140 shells! ... my journey ended in the Café for a cup of coffee where I got tired, I realized what a huge but beautiful work my done ... and, of course, I want to share with you these photos ...
