December in Hainan

Hi,

I want to visit Hainan in the end of December, including the Christmas and New Year.

I am looking for swimming and sunbathing on beach, so as I wonder whether the sea is calm enough in that period of time? Any specific recommendations of a beach?

Another question - are there any kayaking places there?

Would appreciate any information! Thanks.

Hainan, China

Hi,

The sea is certainly calm enough for swimming and it will be warm enough to sunbathe. I suggest you head to Dadonghai beach. As for kayaking, this is not a popular sport with the Chinese and I've never come across it. The closest thing will be what they call "river drifting" which is a bit like rafting on inflatable boats. For that you'll have to head towards Wuzhishan, about 1 hour from Sanya.

Enjoy your trip!

Best Regards,

HainanFeilipu

Hi, Tamara,

For enjoying swimming and sunbatch on the beach, you can select Yalong Bay for a high class stay, and staying on Dadonghai beach would be a reasonable price.The 2 beaches all locates in Sanya.

If you wanna do rafting, you can go to Wuzhishan valley and WanquanRiver Valley, you will have a unforgettable experience there, do pay much more attention on your safety.

The water is definitely calm inside the bays. I've seen lakes that have more wave action.

There are ocean kayaks and stand up paddle surf boards. You can find them at independent rental areas in Dadonghai. A resort may have them in Yalong too. Jet skis are all over the place as well as the big bikes with inflatable tires.

These are your winter surf spots for some wave action:

Shimei Bay

Riyue Bay

Ho-Hai Beach

"Matos"

I'd recommend a long board for Hainan.
