Print english.sanya.gov.cn Updated: 2022-12-27

In winter, Sanya is not only known for its charming seaside scenery, but also for the egrets that can be seen flying around. Egrets are water birds with high requirements for habitats. They are recognized as "environmental monitoring birds."

Sanya River exposes a large area of shoal during low tide that attracts many egrets looking for food. Tourists and locals who want to get a closer look at these birds can head to the hydrophilic platform near Hedong Road in Sanya River National Wetland Park. These birds complement the blue sky, clear water and green trees, forming a beautiful ecological picture.

Many citizens and tourists who enjoy leisure and fitness can enjoy Sanya for its city features and its natural landscapes.
