Nice view of boats and wrap of the coastline. Do not wear open sandals or go barefoot without having toughened your feet first, the beach consists of broken shell and it hurts! Water is murky, for clean water go to West Island.

this side seems more organized and clean to me, at least in the time i was there this part was the best for me. Water gets deep relative fast so a good swimming skill is a must or take close care with your kids the waves are high and strong

No, this beach is not for me. A lot of people, and the beach is dirty. The best advice "Yalong Bay". There's only 5 and 4 star hotels and most of the beaches Resort. Quiet, calm, clean sea and Coral sand. What else is needed?

Its not so good for swimming but enjoy some watersports and/or some food or drink in one of the many beachside restaurants. Just relax.

We are staying near to the Sanya Bay and thus able to take a stroll to the beach anytime. However when we reach there, it was raining but luckily it has stopped. The water is clear and sandy. It's a great and quiet place for relaxation.
