This place is one of the best beaches in China I have seen so far. There is a Chinese touch to this tropical beach with a lot of restaurants on the shore, which get very crowded at night, even sometimes with live music playing. It is great for families, though I was expecting more bars and places to try jetski... More

good for a long walk along the beach. The beach is clean but far from perfect, you find plastic running around on sand as much as in the water. Water in general is clean but I'm sure you have seen better piece of beach before. If you lower your expectations you will have less pain, I kept my ones quite... More

The beach is crowded, but if you never experienced a crowded chinese beach, it might worth it. It is nice to walk on the path on the top of the beach. There are plenty of expensive and not good restaurant, so don't bother eating here.but just watch around forthe busy beach of sanya.

If you're staying in Sanya and want to hit the beach...please skip Sanya Bay and head out to Dadonghai Beach. The beach is MUCH cleaner and when the water is calm...it's usually pretty clear. In the late summer, the surf picks up and it can be a great place to rent a surfboard and get to it. Things in and... More

Beyond disbelief..Dadonghai, the Great Eastern Ocean. It wasn't like this 2 years ago. Think dead rats, thriving rat population & heaps of DEAD CORALS washed ashore. Saw locals picking them up -to my terror our tour guide said they were going to cook it. It was such a sad sight! My sister is into advanced diving, so she took the... More

The sand is ok, and the water clear on good days, but there are so many people there it's hard to relax.

I've been travelling with my parents for last 3 years to Sanya to Dadonghai beach. We usually rent an apartment 5 min walking distance from the sea. Advantage of renting is that you can use the kitchen & cook anything you want. This is a great option for those like me, who doesn't like Chinese food & prefer to eat... More

It's a public beach with good services. you can pay about 100 RMB for two benches, which we ended up not using at all. We also paid 20 RMB for a locker - which was a plus. You get access to it all day. Also there's a shower you can pay 10 rmb for which was also a plus. Could... More

I thought the beach wasn't bad! Some people in this review thread don't seem to realize that this is China - a DEVELOPING country. Not everything's perfect. I've lived in China for more than three years, and for China, this place isn't half bad. This is a budget beach - it's not super luxurious, but it's definitely not as bad... More
