Wuzhizhou Coral Island, is a very beautiful island, which is out on the east coast of Hainan island, at Haitang bay. Start point from "Hou Hai" where all the fairy's take you to the island, and round tickets could be bought at the place, but remember that the last fairy leaves the island about 17:00. Gorgeous natural landscape and a... More

I have been to Wuzhizhou island many many years ago. The beauty of this small island printed in my memory. Crystal water, peaceful, quiet, and you will see thousands of sea unchin, tons of fish if you swim around 100m away the beach. At that time, there's nothing on the island but a small temple. But when i went there... More

As above, crystal clear water and very clean. Although only one swimming area and they forbid you from using breathing tube with googles.

Sold to unsuspecting Chinese tourists as "The Maldives of China". What a load. The island's perimeter is primarily beach, but all off-limits except one stretch of about 100m in what is inevitably the busiest place on the island. Heavily enforced, there is not much one can do here that isn't laid out plainly on a sign. The "admission" and "water... More

The crowded island pulls way too much traffic and basically charges a ton to do anything. All the reviews I read seem very inaccurate at this point, avoid the tourist traps and have a great holiday. The food was not good.

It is a long trip to be there from Sanya city, but the beach is amazing. The downside is it is too crowded and packed with people for everything. I love the scuba trip there

Wuzhizhou is a tiny island off the east coast of Hainan. It has a small fine sand beach, and there is a good stroll around the island with some nice views. A bit overcrowded during holidays. You get there by ferry. There are eateries at the harbor that offer good food that is reasonably priced for a touristic spot.

dont bother...its a lovely beach but you arent allowed to do anything...even swimming and a walk on the grass. there are so many restrictions here its just not worth it. I have found all the chinese beach resorts the same..rip offs and restrictions. if you want a nice beach holiday try ko samui thailand..mai nam is good:)

It took around 10-20 minutes to reach the island by ferry.This is the most beautiful beach among Sanya Bay, Yalong Bay and Dadong Hai. The water were so blue that we could even see fishes. We...
