This has got to be the most overrated (I'm still scratching my head on how the resort won the 5A ranking from the PRC nation wide ranking agency) and overpriced attraction in Sanya.. Particularly for visitors from tropical countries like Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia etc, this will be a really disappointing attraction. It also has a really ludicrous tale surrounding what...

think I paid around 150 yuan for entry fee, but what you get is just another man-made "attraction" .

Save up your money for something else.

Not my favorite beach on the island- a bit run down and dirty. So many more to choose from with nicer sand and 1st class bars and restaurants

As with many spots in Hainan this one is a scenic costal spot where Chinese come to walk and picnic. It wasn't too crowded and the water had lots of rocky outcroppings you could walk around on. Don't go out of your way to come here as they don't allow swimming.

It is a nice place to spend a leisurely morning. You can get there by taking a public bus and immerse yourself with the locals. The journey will take a little more than an hour and it may not be easy to get a seat or more depending on traffic. Getting back is easier as it is the terminal station... More

I spent much more time on the rocky beach enjoying the fantastic sea view than actually exploring the other Taoist artefacts in the theme park. A sprawling place which takes several hours to explore. The beach is much better than that at Tianya Haijiao in my opinion
