Where to stay in Sanya

Exploring Sanya

Sanya is located in the very south of China, on the edge of the island of Hainan. With its long white sandy beaches, hordes of sun lovers enjoying snorkeling and jet-skiing and a growing number of high-rise five-star hotels, it's little wonder that Sanya has been nicknamed ‘Hawaii in China'.

Sanya is one of the rare parts of China that does not experience cold weather in the winter. It is not unusual for temperatures to reach 30°C, even in the middle of January, and so this makes it a very handy getaway for Chinese and Russian travelers in search of a winter break. During Chinese New Year, the place is absolutely packed.

Sightseeing in Sanya

- Yalong Bay

This is one of the Sanya region's more isolated beaches. It is too far to be reached on foot but there are many private buses and taxis that ply the route. Yalong Bay is popular for water sports such as jet-skiing and windsurfing — swimmers and sunbathers tend to go elsewhere.

- Sanya Bay

This is a huge beach that curves around for over 25kms but because it is the main point of entry for the commercial and industrial shipping traffic to the city, the quality of the water here is poor. Swimmers usually go elsewhere, but diners and bar-hoppers make this part of Sanya their first stop.

Transportation in Sanya

Sanya International Airport (SYX) is located about 25km west of downtown Sanya and shuttle buses run during flight traffic times (charges apply). Alternatively, taxis or hire cars follow the G225 expressway direct to the city.

In Sanya, public buses run all the major tourist routes. Bus lines 2 and 4 move people between downtown Sanya and the beach at Dadonghai at regular intervals. One-way tickets are extremely cheap and tickets on buses that serve further destinations and pleasant beaches are a little more, naturally.

Taxis are metered but prices can be negotiated, especially if longer distances, out of the way locations or wait for pick up apply. Motorcycle rental is cheap and there are many places to organize a rental. Inexperienced riders are strongly cautioned however about the state of the roads in this part of China. Driving methods are ad-hoc to say the least and accidents are unfortunately common.
