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:)

Wuzhizhou coral island was been visited in July in 2014 when I worked in Hainan. The island is far from Sanya and about 2 hours driving from the hotel we stayed in Sanya bay. The first excited thing in my memory is when the island came into my eyes, because the beach in there is pretty close to my image... More

I wouldn't suggest any international travelers to go there. The high rating comes from Chinese travelers who are used to large crowds. Part of the island is closed off and you cannot walk around it. You are not allowed to climb on the rocks or do anything interesting. We waited in long lines to get on the ship and return.... More

My wife and I spent 168 rmb each to take the ferry over to the island, as our resort identified the island as the closest place for my wife to go scuba diving. It is not a far boat ride from the mainland. Once on the island, you immediately know it caters to tourists and they are looking for tourists... More

Exploiting the masses, it's all about making money from holiday makers with no thought to quality or level of service, they don't care if you never come back, there are millions more who will come and pay a one time fee because they have no experience of diving and water sports..

We went for a day excursion on an organized trip. The beach was okay but it was so crowded that you could not enjoy it much.

We were told about this beautiful island off of Sanya, Thinking we could spend the day there, lay on a white sand beach soak up the sun and swim in the crystal clear blue water. Island authorities have something else in mind, They have set up a swimming zone around the island, which consist of a square by the pier... More

Very pretty but VERY busy! Lots of different options and activities, we didn't stay long though do to the crowds. We were there at the start of the Chinese New Years Holiday so it was expected to be busy, which it was!
