Great beach

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

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.

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:)

Traveled with Chinese tour group.Took about 2 hours to reach Wuzhizhou Wharf and from there we took a ferry to the wuzhizhou island . 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...

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..
