Yalong Bay, Sanya

4.3
#1 of 85 in Beaches in China
Beach Beach / Pool Club
Surrounded by green hills, Yalong Bay ranks as one of the area's most popular waterfront stretches. Indulge in the sights and sounds of the bay, extending for 7.5 km (4.7 mi) along the coast, by kicking back on its soft-sand beach. You'll certainly get a great chance to admire the surrounding mountains while you relax or splash in the blue waters. Many of the upscale hotels along the main beach enforce entry fees on visitors coming from the main square--access the sand through one of the hotel entrances to alleviate this inconvenience. Afterwards, make your way up to one of the viewing platforms behind the beach for a sweeping view of the coast. Make Yalong Bay a centerpiece of your Sanya vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Sanya itinerary builder.

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.
