If you are looking for a true Authentic Experience on Hainan Island, then please book our Hainan Local Fishing Village Tour for a true Hainan experience.
Caddie, the owner of www.sunnyhainan.com discovered the fishing village on her trip to Hainan Monkey Islet when she was taking the cable car to the Monkey Islet. From above in the cable car, Caddie saw the red-roofed houses floating on the sea and the fishing boats, then she checked. Now the fishing village tour is the most popular tour organized by www.sunnyhainan.com and also Caddie’s first recommendation for a true Hainan experience. The fishing village is not tourist destination. www.sunnyhainan.com is the only tour operator on Hainan Island who promotes this fishing village as destination for day tour as we want to show you the true life of the local fishermen.
The Xincun Fishing Village is located in Lingshui County, about 1.5 hours drive from Sanya, steps from Nanwan Monkey Islet. The beach close to the fishing village is called Clear Water Bay.
Our tour covers a very local market, seafood lunch on one of the floating restaurant on the sea. The ride to the fishing village is also interesting, you will see many local plants, animals, kids after school on their ways, locals working in very local ways……
The tour will take like half day (6 hours) with a local boat ride in the fishing village, a visit to a very local market, real fresh seafood lunch on a floating restaurant and English speaking staff.
Traditionally, Xincun Port is a fishing port in Lingshui, and the home of more than 600 red-roofed houses owned by Dan Jia People (known as the Chinese “gypsies on the sea”). In Hainan, Dan Jia People is not really an ethnic minority. They belong to the Han-nationality. The origin of Dan Jia can be traced back to the Qin Dynasty. Their ancestors, which mainly came from Fujian and Guangdong provinces, battled with the winds.
