Fishing Village Lingshui Hainan

Xincun Fishing Village is located in Lingshui County, about a 1.5-hour drive from Sanya, steps away from Nanwan Monkey Islet. The beach near the fishing village is known as Clear Water Bay.

Our tour includes a visit to a local market, a seafood lunch at one of the floating restaurants on the sea, and an intriguing boat ride in the fishing village. The journey to the fishing village is also captivating, offering glimpses of local flora, fauna, children returning from school, and locals engaged in traditional activities.

Traditionally, Xincun Port is a fishing port in Lingshui, home to more than 600 red-roofed houses owned by the Dan Jia People, known as the Chinese “gypsies of the sea.” In Hainan, the Dan Jia People do not constitute an ethnic minority but belong to the Han nationality. Their origins can be traced back to the Qin Dynasty when their ancestors, primarily from Fujian and Guangdong provinces, navigated the winds.
