Great beach with nice view of Phoenix Island

I tried to swim first day i came to Sanya, but there was a lot of seaweed in the water so i didn't do it at the end. But there is great view of Phoenix Island from the beach!

Its very near to downtown area but the water is very dirty. I prefer going some other bay as it is very crowded as well... Its good for night time for seeing Phoneix Island.

A much better calmer quieter beach than the commercialized Yalong and Haitang bay. Beautiful views and high class hotels esp the Pullman SANYA bay with great water parks for the family . Sunsets are picturesque & romantic , great to take photos for remembrance

This goes for miles. Not very deep but long long. Some nice views of phoenix island. Water not the best in sanya. Nice to walk or ride a bike through. Haiyue square also close. Many bus routes pass this.

When I was there, there were a lot of ships, which in my opinion ruined the view. It is however a clean beach, so if you don't mind that, it's fine. Prefer Dadonghai.
