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

This bay is alot busier than Yalong bay and has a very long strip of eateries and bars with views over the beach. It has a great atmosphere and is good to visit.

the beaches at Dadonghai are clean and beautiful- just like in the pictures! There were quiet a few people there, but I have seen more of a crowd at beaches in America. I would recommend Dadonghai!

Compared to the over touristy and hotel covered beaches of Yalong Bay and Sanya Bay, Dadonghai offers that lied back chill vibe. Tons of beach benches with shade available to hire for the day, which you'll need if you go in April like I do for the last 3years, and coconuts freshly chopped and a bible of cocktails from the...

No kidding, a thousand beach lovers croud this place at one time and all day long. At night, check out Poalo’s bar on the beach called Sanya Surf. Loved the Sat night dancing.

Lively beach area. The actual beach and sea is pretty good, it is blue most the time. Lots of bars and restaurants some of which are over priced. Mix of Chinese, Russians, and the odd back-packer. If you want a quiet, relaxing beach suggest you go elsewhere. But was interesting just to experience a Chinese tropical beach.

Nice beach. Don't understand why some people complained about it. If you ate an overpriced pizza or beer you probably did see the price before ordering it. You can get a bowl of great noodles off the main road for only 15 rmb...very cheap and very very tasty!! Lots of places to eat from...you dont have to choose a restaurant... More
