Sanya as a city doesn't have much to offer, and this bay is also nothing amazing. The water is a bit dirty. Saying that, it is still better than the majority of Chinese beaches, even better than the famous Silver beach in Beihai (which is...More

Its very near to downtown area but the water is very dirty. I prefer going some other bay as it is very crowded as well... Its good for night time for seeing Phoneix Island.

I tried to swim first day i came to Sanya, but there was a lot of seaweed in the water so i didn't do it at the end. But there is great view of Phoenix Island from the beach!
