Took a long ride to reach there and was disappointed by how little one can do there. Took the 30 min boat ride and it gets boring after awhile. I was hoping i can see wildlife like crabs but alas did not. The museum in the carpark was closed, unsure if is for good or because is the off peak season. Wanted to go for seafood at the village restaurant opposite the jetty but because we ended off at after lunch time like around 2 pm, the restaurant has closed for noon nap.

So this is a bit of a tricky review. The place is quite peaceful, offering a great taste of natural wildlife and nature growing free, but it is quite a limited experience. As this is a conservation area, they have removed what was once the main attraction - a lengthy plank walk through the forest offering great sights. When we went this has been removed to let the forest regrow and there were no immediate plans to reopen it. There is a limited path still open (maybe 30mins worth) and they do offere boat rides for a 60RMB fee but you can’t get off and it only lasts 30mins. It’s still worth seeing overall but set your expectations at an appropriate level. Also, the bus comes once every 30mins! Be weary!

I have visited the Haikou mangroves a few times over the past two years, it gets better each year. It's a great escape out of the city. The mangroves are around 30km out of downtown Haikou, downtown been the Guomao area. If searching on baidu or google maps you could copy and paste this into the browser 海口红树林. The boat tour around the Mangroves is now in full operation and costs 60 yuan for a 30 minute ride around the mangroves. The museum is located next to the carpark, turn right at the roundabout. There's plenty of information in English if you want to learn more about the mangroves and at the rear and walkway that takes you into the marsh areas. There are small restaurants next to the ticket office, if you want something a little more upscale, walk North from the ticket office for around 2km and there's a nice seafood restaurant. Search this in maps to find the restaurant 连理枝渔家乐 copy and paste into maps.

Few times I was so disappointed with a place. First of all they told us it was very well connected, while getting there was a real odissey, among fake taxis and stranded buses. As we arrived, the place was closed, because reasons. We weren't the only tourists stranded there, still there was no one trying to help. Nay, the personnel, apart not speaking a word of English which is forgivable, was aggresively rude and irritating. The plce might be nice, but God I hated every single second I wasted there.

The boats were not operating because they do not work during the National Holidays (Oct 1 -4)! The boardwalk (in red on the photo of the map) is so overgrown that it is no longer walkable: believe me!Was not able to do anything at all, lost half a day. Even the Chinese did not know.
