Halong Bay differs from Sanya Bay, the water is rougher and the waves a little higher. Situated on the southern shore of the island, it has a number of international branded hotels and resorts access to amazing local food and if you want to shop,...More
This is great place to visit the beach. Lovely scenery with mountains, tropical rainforest and palm trees.
The beach is accessible through the hotels or a public access although I think you need to pay to enter.
The beach is clean and has a soft...More
Our first stop in Sanya. Most of the high end beach resorts line the coast of this bay. We went to Yalong Bay central square which has a slew of seafood restaurants that serve live catches. There is also a fresh seafood market where you...More
This beach was one of the best. With great ocean. Too many eateries. All the branded luxury hotels, with all the foreigners all around you, yes you heard me very few locals. Food is expensive obviously 🙄, but it’s a good place to chill when...More

I also went during the winter months... but since Sanya is located on the tropical part of Hainan island, the weather is not as cold as up north (e.g. Haikou). If you go during Chinese New Year (i.e. around early Feb next year), it should be warmer compared to in Dec. Not sure on how crowded it will be during CNY, but even if it is, it will consist mainly of non-locals, as most of them would be back in their hometowns to celebrate the Lunar New Year. Lastly, not sure about the snorkeling part... but the sea doesn't look as though it is suitable for snorkeling. In addition, I didn't see anyone using any snorkeling gear during my visit then.
