Not too busy (I went during peak National Holiday time and there were never more than 15 or 20 people in my vicinity). Water is clean enough to swim in, waves are not strong. Services by a variety of good restaurants.

This beach isn't quite as nice as Dadonghai or Yalong Bay: water isn't so clean and there's more rubbish on the beach itself. But it has the advantage of being close to the centre of Sanya City and has good views out over Phoenix Island.

The beach is great but it's full of little bugs that bite you. If you are looking for bars or places to hang out is not the right beach.

Beach with no activities, sales of drinks etc. Everything is on hotels only. Nothing really happens on the beach. Chinese should learn from Thailand. Bit iffy cleanliness.

I visited in April and the beach was perfect- very quiet in comparison to DaDongHai, which was packed with tourists. Sanya Bay was clean and quiet with toilets at regular intervals. The biggest drawback was that there wasn’t much in the surrounding area. No restaurants...More

Enjoy this beach especially landscape and beautiful sand with palm trees like in Florida. Just water quality is better when you go far from the river. Sea is just smooth no rocks seen or other. Toilet and sanitary facilities are every about 2km one minus...More
