Sanya Bay Beach, Walking Distance from Downtown Sanya, close to Sanya Airport
Location of Sanya Bay Beach:
Sanya Bay is the closest beach to downtown Sanya, lasting for over 22 KM from the Phoenix Island in the city area till the Club Med at the very end of the Bay.
As the beach is only 4 KM from Sanya Airport, it is very good choice for visitors looking for shorter travel distance from Sanya Airport.
3 Parts of the Beach:
As it is a very long beach, the local people normally divide the Beach into 3 parts: City Area, the middle and the last part. The City area is walking distance away from the city center with all kinds of hotels along the beach. If you want to be in the city center with a good ocean view from your hotel, then the city area is the best option for you. For tourists looking for beach swimming and also a little bit away from the city center, then the middle part is a good choice for you. If you are looking for quite a beach relaxing, away from the city center, then the last part close to Club Med is the best option.
All the hotels are located behind the main road, so to reach the beach, all guests have to walk across the main road to Sanya Bay beach. While in Yalong Bay Sanya, Haitang Bay Sanya, and Dadonghai Beach Sanya, the hotels are located right on the beach, no road in between the beach and the hotels.
For your information, the winter time, it is less windy in Sanya Bay as the beach faces South, so it is normally warmer here.
As it is is not as popular as Yalong Bay or Dadonghai Beach, the hotels at similar standards offer better rates.
With public transportation, tourists can easily reach Sanya Bay by local bus or taxi, which costs around CNY15-50 depending on the location of your hotel.
For family, we would recommend Pullman Ocean View Resort Sanya Bay with ocean view rooms, family suites with 2-3 bed rooms, and also private house with 3 bed rooms and your own swimming pool.
