As a tropical costal city, Sanya in Hainan province possesses six bays that boast great natural beauty and have a variety of water sports to offer. In addition, the city is also home to the Haitang Bay International Shopping Center, the world's biggest single-structured duty free shopping mall that integrates duty-free shopping, taxable shopping, dining and entertainment, as well as cultural displays.


Dadonghai Bay 




Dadonghai Bay is located between Yulin Port and Luhuitou ("the deer looking back") Scenic Spot in Sanya.

The popular tourism attraction, with Dadonghai Beach being one of Sanya cleanest beaches, is a 4A-level scenic spot. It is open to the public for free.

Yalong Bay




Yalong Bay National Tourism Resort is a high-quality tropical seaside scenic area in the eastern suburbs of Sanya, about 10 kilometers from the city's downtown.

Yalong Bay is a crescent bay with 7 kilometers of silver-white sandy beaches. The sea is clean and transparent, showing different shades of blue. The coral species are rich and suitable for many underwater activities, including diving.

Sanya Bay




Sanya Bay Resort starts from Sanya Port in the east, and boasts a coastal promenade of 10 kilometers stretching along the bay. Coconut trees were planted along both sides of the path. The bay's unique views include the two islets, East Island and West Island, “floating” on the sea surface.


Yazhou Bay


Yazhou Bay is in the southwestern part of Sanya, covering an area of about 61 square kilometers. The Ningyuan River flows in the bay, and at the estuary, there is an old place named Yacheng governed by Yazhou in ancient times, thus giving the bay its name. 

The bay is also home to ancient Dadan Port, the southernmost port of commerce in China, and a key node for the ancient Maritime Silk Road.

Haitang Bay 



Haitang Bay is located on the northeast coast of Sanya, 28km from the city and adjacent to Yalong Bay National Tourism Resort. The bay is an international leisure resort jam-packed with high-end hotels like the world's third Atlantis Hotel and the world's biggest single-structured duty free shopping mall Haitang Bay International Shopping Center.

Hongtang Bay 



Hongtang Bay Tourism Resort is located in Sanya's Tianya district. It is surrounded by national 5A scenic areas, facing the End of the Earth (Tianya Haijiao) in the east. It is opposite to West Island across the sea, with convenient transportation and beautiful scenery.
