Dadonghai is the cleanest beach for swimming at, much cheaper than Yalong Bay and afterwards we always go to coffee world to relax on their outside seating area, just under the big umbrellas. Their freshly brewed iced coffees are delicious and just the treat for a hot China day. Starbucks is just around the corner inside Summer Mall and they... More

This beach is lovely, but very busy. It's calm and good for children. There are a lot of tourist services and it's easy to relax for a comfortable and enjoyable day here. I'd recommend paying to rent a beach chair and locker, or getting a meal at one of the beachside restaurants and basing yourself there for the day. There... More

When I first visited Sanya and Dadonghai in 2002 it was kind of a great place. It was just awakening from a sleepy fishing town and starting on its way to becoming another overbuilt, overcrowded Chinese city. There was plenty of open space at the beach, not too crowded, as many locals as tourists...relaxing, as a beach should be. But,... More

There are some lovely Beaches on Hainan, but this is my personal favourite, as Dusk falls you can see the fishing boats coming in for there nights work, many restaurants with all kinds of Fish which you select your own personal choice of Fish from.

I was here about 20 odd years ago and didn't know what it will look like now as Sanya has developed and changed a lot, so before coming here, I read reviews about it. To my amaze, it is better than some reviews. Some reviews that I read said it's dirty on the beach, garbage in the water, etc. but... More

If you don't know you're in China you would think you are in a western beach like costa brava. You can jetski, rent beach chairs, go snorkeling or diving. The beach was clean altough it had some typhoon damage. Nice palm trees. Lot of western people on the beach. Going to the beach not very popular in China. We were... More

Compared to other beaches near Sanya, Dadonhai is easy to get to and bit less expensive that the other "famous" beaches. Take the number 15 or 25 municipal buses from Sanya or Sanya Bay. From the Bay area it was about a 15 minute bus ride. We went during the week so it was not terribly crowded. Changing rooms and... More

This is a nice beach when I was there in May. Clear waters. The resorts in the area are all about the same in age and service. Just a really nice place to hear the waves crash and enjoy the sun the way at my awn pace.
