The beach was better compared to Sanya but in terms of cost cheaper than Yalong Beach. We rented the surf board for around 10 yuan which was very cheap. We were asked around RMB 100 for the same thing in Yalong Bay.At around 6 pm the lifeguard did not allowed people to swim anymore because of high tide.

Nice enough beach, really liked the boardwalk at night, all lit up, Filipino band at Chinese restaurant playing American rock and roll with great drinks, what fun. Multiple choices for diner, boardwalk loaded with food.

Da Dong Hai has a lot going for it: A horseshoe shape with a view of mountains to the side; reclining chairs and thatched parasols for rent; a boardwalk where you can have drinks or dine overlooking the beach and water; and, unlike Yalong Bay, you are right in the city of Sanya. I like Sanya Bay's beach because it... More

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
