This place is very famous in china, because it's the most northern of china mainland. Many china visit here, but i don't think it's quite different with other beach. Another problem is you will meet many peddlers chasing you to try to convince you to buy some thing. I do hate it...

Beautiful beaches inside, nice to walk along the beach as you stroll toward the big stone. All the big rocks are interesting as each is natural and tells a story.

The beach is crowded and very touristy. Go there for the experience. It would be quite difficult to take a nice picture there.

It is a great place for people watching. The beach is nothing special, there is nothing outstanding about the beach. The main reason Chinese come to this place is to see the poem that was written on the rock. Hainan was a place for Mandarin officials who were considered outlaws were exiled to this island in the past. As many... More

Not for sunbsthing or swimming, but perfect for walking in an amazing scenery created by lots of rocks and palm trees. If you are tired of walking, you can have a drink or fruit snack in one of plenty stalls. Being in Sanya, you cannot miss this place. It probably can be boring for somebody who saw lots of tropical... More

The beach is decent, the rocks there seem interesting with some of them have carvings (that bear the name of this tourist attraction). However I think many of these rocks are not naturally occurring there I think - I saw metal studs on some of them that look like they are used to move the rocks from elsewhere to the... More
