Yalong Bay has some big hotels (Mariott, Ritz/Carlton, Sheraton, Hilton) who all have a beautiful maintained garden and private sand beaches. From the beach you can easily walk from one hotel to the other.

Yalong bay is one the place where you can to go again and again and sad to when it's to leave. Many hotels are there, you can book a better price upon arrival. Just book one night first to secure your first night and then you can change after and negotiate around. I like the night BBQ on the beach... More

Compared to, Sanya and Dadonghai bay , this beach is much beautiful but is also a bit expensive compared to the other two. There are various water activities. Renting a hut (umbrella and two beach chairs) cost about CNY 100 for a whole day. Renting tubes and other stuff is bit expensive.There are limited food stalls and the price is... More

Great area, with a beautiful beach. But everything is more expensive in Yalong Bay, and you don't have a lot of options.

As soon I went there I regretted that I didn't booked my hotel in this area. Water looks cleaner than Sanya bay near the airport.

And that's why Many internationally operated hotels have opened in Yalong Bay, including the Sheraton Sanya Resort, Marriott Hotel, Ritz-Carlton Sanya Resort and MGM Grand Resorts. Several domestically-operated... More

Much of the area is under construction and cut off from the public. The public beach was quite crowed even thought it was a week day. The beach chair rental is nothing short of robbery.. they wanted to charge us 150 rmb ($24) per chair at 1:00pm in the afternoon. My Chinese traveling partner talked them down to 200rmb ($30)...

We visited Yalong bay as it is touted as one of the beaches to visit in China. However, there is so much noisy building construction, roads are a mess, and access to the beach is blocked either by hotels or blue construction wall barriers that the overall impression is not that great. In the area of beach we entered, there... More

The Yalong Bay area is very nice area and well maintained, Within the resorts but just as well outside the resorts. I believe there are not many if any beach resorts in Europe who have a similar level There is limited traffic and very limited noise.
