Hainan Lingshui Nanwan Monkey Island Travel Guide & Day Tour

Nanwan Peninsula sprawls along the eastern coast of Hainan Island, approximately 1.5 hours’ drive from Sanya. Nestled near the Xincun Fishing Village, renowned for its authenticity, Nanwan Peninsula is a top recommendation for local tours on Hainan Island. Notably, the peninsula is famed for its resident monkeys, adding to its allure.

Nanwan Monkey Island, situated within Lingshui County on the southern coast of Hainan, serves as a protected nature reserve for macaque monkeys. While referred to as an island, this reserve is actually situated on the Nanwan Peninsula, adjacent to Xincun Harbor on the east and south. Accessible via China’s longest over-water cable car from Xincun, spanning an impressive 2,138 meters, the journey offers breathtaking views of the surrounding landscape.

Established in 1965 as a sanctuary for Macaca mulatta, the Nanwan Monkey Island has evolved into one of the most sought-after tourist destinations on Hainan’s east coast, home to approximately 2,000 monkeys.
