Crystal-clear water, white sand beach (not crowded at all) and the best beach resorts in China. The sea water is so clear that visibility can reach as deep as almost 8 meters, making it a very good choice for scuba diving and snorkeling in Sanya Hainan Island.

If you just want to lie on the beach, enjoy the crystal-clear water, sandy beach and resorts facilities, Yalong Bay Sanya is the best place to be. If you work in China and want to get away from the city life, then Yalong Bay is your best choice. In Yalong Bay, each resort has a beach area with umbrellas and beach chairs for resorts guests only. As it is a beach resort, you don’t see much local life, only resorts, and tourists from all over the world. Sometimes you don’t feel you are in Sanya, but as if somewhere in Hawaii, Florida or could be any beach resort in the world.
