Sanya Bay has a long stretch of coastline and it's very quiet most of the time (apart from at night when there are old people dancing to music blasted out from speakers). It's a nice place to tan, go running, pick up shells, and have a quiet conversation. Due to the dirty seawater I wouldn't rate it as very good, but certainly above average-I'd give it 6.5/10.

This beach was my home base for the 14 days here. I was staying in apartments near Sheraton Four Points Hotel and just a couple of hundred metres to the beach. I have loved my morning runs along the beach when the tide would let me. I think it is fantastic to see all the dancing and music activity on the beach at nit with the older folk is great to watch. There is a lot of road works being undertaken on Sanyawan Lu, so it's a little bit of a mess in spots and chaotic for traffic. I felt safe although an incident with a crotch grabbing weirdo was an unexpected surprise.
Overall I really enjoyed being here in SanYa Bay

Sunset view in Sanya Bay is very beautiful, but still, it's not a perfect place for swimming I think. As I see, the water cleanliness needs a improvement.

First trip to Sanya. Made a bad choice of hotel but was overall impressed with Sanya. It's clean and the beaches are really nice. Stay at Yalong Bay. It's a better choice than Haitang Bay since they have many sports activities on offer, better choice of places to eat etc. Haitang Bay is pretty lonely and not much happening there. Enjoy !

This is outside the town, much quieter in the day than Yalong Bay. Comes alive at night with tons of bbq stalls, lively mobile karaoke and lots of beach sellers - actually selling things you want to buy (mangoes/fruit/food). Great atmosphere & feels safe.
