if you are just visiting, this place is a waste of time. The beach and sea is divided into sections belonging to the hotels, with a small space for the public. If you want a beach chair/umbrella you can pay one of the hotels, and use their small space. The amount of space you get to swim in is really... More

When in Hainan Yalong is always hands down a better experience than Sanya Bay. The resorts here a nicer and you'll find the public beaches the beaches are whiter and less crowded than those at Sanya. There's a distinct lack of places to eat though and in that respect Sanya has a little more to offer. What little it does... More

Go to the beach early morning, 8-9AM, no one around, you will be the only one in the entire bay. Best beach is at Villa 5 hotel.

Generally we are China fans and after reading several positive reviews we decided to spend 7 days at the so called best Chinese beach "Yalong Bay". However, we were really disappointed by the Yalong Bay and the area. The beaches are small and dirty. We spent time at the Ritz Carlton and HolidayInn Resort beach - really bad. Swimming is... More

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.
