I would skip it in favor of other locations, especially if you don't speak Chinese. Beach and ocean were nice, but few amenities. Only way to enjoy yourself is to stay at an expensive resort.

Beach is quite long, about 30 minutes from Phoenix Airport by car. It has clean white sand, few rocks in some places. The water is so so since it is in the town. In some areas there are some umbrellas. Often there is wind and waves which mixes the water with the sand and causes a not so pleasant result. I prefer to go to other near beaches. No comparison.

Great beach, very clean, clean and nice temperature water.
Not so many people, which is great and comfy.

Sanya has little to offer except a stretch of so-so beach and four buildings that light up at night. Basically, there is almost NOTHING to do in Sanya that is worth spending ANY money on. Have a day trip, eat a nice fish meal in Dragon Bay restaurant on the sea front, (good value) then go somewhere else. Really. ;>

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 rubbish by the way). There's a nice view, especially around sunset, it's very long, and it's right in the city so you don't need to make a special trip out.

If you can rent a car and explore a bit, Hainan has plenty of nice beaches that you can have all to yourself. Skip this one.
