China Travel Guide: Hainan Island (Hainan Province)
Yalong Bay of Hainan Island (Hainan Province)


Yalong Bay, Hainan Island - "China's Hawaii"

Yalong Bay - Know as China’s Hawaii, “It is even better than Hawaii”. That is the compliment given by many tourists about Yalong Bay. In a sense, Yalong Bay is a symbol of Sanya. Whenever people marvel at the beauty of Sanya, what appears in their mind is the water and beach at Yalong Bay.

Yalong Bay of Hainan Island, China

Approved construction in October 1992, the Yalong Bay National Resort, covering an area of 18, 6 square km, is China’s only State-level tropical seaside resort. The resort has a typical tropical maritime climate, with the yearly temperature averaging 25.5 degree Celsius. Surrounded by mountains, the water in the bay is calm all year round.

The most striking view of the bay is the sea and the beach. The seawater is crystal clear, with visibility as far down as 10 meters. Under the surface are all kinds of coral and colourful tropical fish, making it an ideal destination for divers. The beach, covered with silver-white sand, extends 8 km, three times the length of the beach in Hawaii.

After 10 years construction, Yalong Bay has been built into a first-rate tourism and recreational resort. It has six hotels at five-star and four-star level, a lido, luxurious villas, conference centers, an underwater world, an on-the-sea sport center, a yacht club, etc..,

Provide tourists with a complete range of catering, accommodation, shopping and recreational service.

The landmark in the bay is the central square, where stands a 26.8-meter high stone totem pillar engraved with the gods of the sun, wind, rain, thunder and lighting as well as other auspicious animals in Chinese culture. Representing 5,000 years of Chinese history, the totem symbolizes man’s desire for peace, happiness and harvests and wealth.

There are two more tourist attractions in Yalong Bay—the Sea Shell Museum and Butterfly Park. The Sea Shell Museum, the first of its kind in China, has a vast collection of all kinds of shells and coral retrieved from the world’s oceans. To some extent, the museum helps unveil part of the mysterious underwater world to people who have never had an undersea experience. The Butterfly Park actually is a gigantic steel-wire net, in which tourists are able to see thousands of butterflies fluttering around them.

Aspiring to become the best resort in Asia, Yalong Bay is building more attraction, among which is a costly on-the-sea amusement park.
