Its a chinese saying "end of the earth" to express love to your opposite. Not far from town center and can finish this trip in 1-2 hours unless you want to hang around.

A touristy site with a lot of buses and small food stands. The restrooms need work. We found the site to be interesting, but not a must-see locale. Bring a hat or other sun protection!

For me as an European traveller this is not something that gives me an experience worth remembering. For the Chinese people it seems like heaven and they take a lot of pictures with every stone. In my opinion, this is a tourist trap. At least if you're not from China. Would not recommend anyone to visit, if you ain't a... More

Maybe it was seeing children urinating on the palm trees that we were using for shade or the beach sand that left our grand daughter black with dirt from making a castle, or the endless tourist trap of the exit, or that they charge an entrance fee for this place... I do not recommend this place at all.

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
