Over a century ago, Wuzhizhou Islet lay uninhabited until local fishermen erected a temple in the 1920s to honor Mazu, the deity of fishermen. Later, the People’s Army utilized the islet as a military base until the 1990s. Recognizing its tourism potential, a local company began promoting Wuzhizhou Islet as a premier tourist destination in Sanya.

Today, Wuzhizhou Islet captivates visitors with its crystal-clear waters, sandy beaches, and an array of water sports, including scuba diving, snorkeling, and parasailing. The islet is renowned for its lush tropical forests, boasting over 2700 wild plant species, including the ancient Spindle Tree Fern and Dragon Tree.

To access the islet, tourists embark on speed boats from a designated pier starting at 8 am, with the last boat departing the islet at 4 pm in winter and 5 pm in summer. Admission costs CNY160 per person, inclusive of round-trip speed boat transfers, with a maximum capacity of 20,000 visitors during peak season.

For a tranquil experience, consider staying overnight at the Wuzhizhou Coral Hotel on the islet, as most tourists depart by evening, leaving the islet serene.

Despite its allure, Wuzhizhou Islet’s popularity can lead to crowded conditions, particularly during the day. If you seek a quieter water sports experience, consider booking activities at Yalong Bay Beach.
