I was here during Chinese new year's and it was very very crowded. The beach is nice not great not that wide but you can walk miles and miles down it. The beaches in L.A. are much nicer as well as Hawaii but i very surprised about the entire sanya experience. Sanya is an awesome place to visit in china... More

Many times rested on this beach with my wife and daughter. Of course, a few years ago, it was better and more recently this beach has become very popular. There are many new hotels and the sea has become a bit dirty. But nevertheless it a good place to relax.

Good hardware, staff trying their best but have no idea abt customer service. Dont expect they will treat you like a reward member from creating customer experience. Bad value for food served if you enjoy wine and food

The beach is really nice and at the time when we were there not many people. However, you have to be aware that there are a lot of jet skis making quite a lot of noise and smell and in the distance there is a military base. We enjoyed walking from the hotel to the small shopping area where you... More

Over developement means that there is no beach front remaining. All of the hotels have taken the beaches so if you want to go to the beach you have to pay the hotel prices to enter. We drove the entire length of Yalong bay and couldn't see the beach once because of the beach front hotels.

We visited Jalong Bay only for a day trip and I was really disappointed. Noisy, crowded. The privat beaches areas of the hotels were limited with fence..otherwise no privacy. Ok, the sand is fine and light...but that was all what impressed me. I am sorry, I was expecting more....

It was a pleasant surprise to find the beach uncrowded the two days we were there, especially given it was a long New Year Day weekend. This worked well for us as we did not have to jostle to move around.
