    This is one of China's most famous beaches. A great getaway from wintry weather. Nice hotels, eateries, and beach activities in the area.

    I walked the whole way up to the park but you can bus or taxi there.
    Once inside the park you can pay to have a tourist bus take you up or walk up - about 6km. I walked and was glad I did (despite the heat!) There is an adorable little peacock garden; while I think there were too many peacocks in their section the rabbit section was adorable! Since I was the first person to arrive I even got to feed the rabbits their afternoon treat. There are also some deer in a very sparse and small enclosure; though they look very healthy. Plus lots of vantage points to stop and admire along the way.
    I headed late afternoon so I could get the views during the day and night. The story of the name and the statute are found at the base of the statue in English.
    *Lots* of cafes etc to stop for drinks and snacks and enjoy the view.
    You can slide down or bus when you are finished. Worth the visit!

    One of the few tourist-tailored activities in Sanya that is well worth visiting. The show was truly amazing, excellent choreography and visuals! The rest of the Romance Park has a lot of activities for kids and food stands - even a KFC.

    We stay for around 4 hours in February 2019. The small jacussy don't have bubbles. but water is very hot. It is small park with trees, air is very good. The place have 5-6 bigger swimming pools 1 small lake and maybe more than 70 small like jacussy pools. Another good thing is marble beds for relax which are very hot and pool with small fishes which peel your skin, very refreshing

    It was low season, but it appeared that Chinese tour groups chose this park over the many beaches in Sanya. Anyway, bit crowded outside and you do have to quickly register as a foreigner and everyone has to wear a mask when entering. However, once in the park, covid is no longer a concern and masks can be taken off:). The main attractions are tourist traps, but the view at the peak is quite nice amd the hike down to Orchid park was worth the admission. At the top there were hundreds of tour groups, but going down we only met one other couple. Since it's mostly steps down your calves will be hurting, but we have no regrets. Definitely worth it if you're in Ya Long Bay for 3+ days, but if less I recommend sticking to the beach.

    A very nice Sandy beach with clear and clean water.
    It is a public one so be ready to be bothered by many outsiders.
    Very far from any attraction or even resturants or cafes.
    Bring your own stuff as you will find nothing there

    The South (China) Sea Guanyin is a masterpiece and must see and visit in this huge park. Walking around this park is a bit physical especially in Summer. For the ones who have health issues they can rent golf cart just after the entrance. More economical way is to take the little trains that stops frequently at different stations for attractions. The sea view from different points in the park is relaxing to breathtaking. This is a must visit park for tourists visiting Sanya.

    We love the night view of Phoenix Island. We can easily cross the bridge from Sanya city by taxi. But we choose enjoyed the night view from Sanya beach.
    Visited on August 2019.

    Though it is smaller than the one in Dubai and too few aquariums to see, the aquariums and the fish are beautiful and top quality show for your eyes. The belugas are playful lovely. They are in an big aquarium for you to contemplate but you cannot forget that they certainly feel better and happier free in the wild out there in the ocean. Beautiful pictures are to be taken.

    We just did the walking trails, not the glass bridge - a very pleasant afternoon in a lovely forest environment, suitable for all ages. The so-called wetland area is very pretty and there is a lovely pond near the tea drinking arbour. Pathways are enjoyably random. Some good views from the bus which takes you up to the park. Reasonable food court at the entrance, even got a decent coffee in Dicos! Worth a visit but don't expect a wilderness or silence!

    We get to the park by mistake, cause the Orchid garden was closed at that day, and taxi driver just took us to the "Sky Grottoes" park.
    We were not really enthusiastic about the place at the beginning. We entered the park in the morning at about 10am, but it was already full of people in beatifull costumes - a big crowd of brides, grooms and photographers - then we learned that this park is one of the best places for wedding photosessions!
    Fortunately for us newelyweds occupied area close to the beach side, so we could continue our walk further. Nearby the entrance and a big food court there was a museum of Hainan history with remains of ancient trees in the garden, found in the nearest rivers, some of them were of 5000 years old!
    You can take a touristic bus to travel between locations, but we decide to walk and then the road led us along the beach to the next park location with food, high stairs to monks temple and lovely stone turtles.
    Several signs attracted us to climb the hill by stone stairs, where top of the hill called "Golden Gates" - well, to finish this path up you need to have really "golded" strength and stamina! But the feeling at the top is worth two-hour climbing! You can have a rest in peace and silence - the only sound you can hear is murmur of waves 900 meters below you - this is the height you just reached! Take enough water with you before climbing, otherwise you risk not to finish the route!
    On the way down you will be really tired physically, but absolutely rested mentally!
    The park provides you a combination of marvelous beachside panoramas and a chance to test your power! I wish I could visit this park again!

    I was a bit apprehensive after reading mixed reviews but enjoyed my visit.
    Not a cheap day but far from extortionate, very much geared for Chinese tourists but we are in China after all.
    It is very crowded in parts but generally organised very well, transfer by boats was about 20 minutes wait time both ways not bad considering the numbers needing to be transported. Tour of Island by electric buggy cost about £7 per person and drinks and snacks were in my opinion pretty reasonable. There are a lot of extras you can send your money on if you want.
    Managed to take some nice photos despite the crowds and enjoyed my visit and found it very enjoyable even though it is very much geared to the domestic tourist market. Half a day would be plenty of time in my opinion.

    Beautiful beach for enjoyable walks. There was a chilly breeze coming off the water on our December visit. Lots of rock formations. Breathtaking views.

    The main attraction of Xi Dao is the adjoining small Niuwang Dao (island) sporting a massive eponymous golden bull on its summit. A pleasant excursion with some good views, fresh sea air and a busy open air food stall on the little island. The main island appears to lack much charm and promotes many activities which didn't seem to attract any punters. Ferry leaves just West of Sanya airport. Make sure to get there by mid-morning. When we returned at 3:00pm, the outbound ferries were heaving

    It is a beautiful island for sure, but perhaps I expected too much. It is not dramatically different from the more famous Wuzhizhou island, but not much less crowded. If you don't have a car, just save yourself some trouble and go to the more convenient Wuzhizhou island.
