Nice beach

The beach was very beautiful and not crowded as it was mid week. A nice area to wander around. We went to a department store, looked like a pineapple, the prices were cheap, cheap.

This is a trip about the fruit. The whole process is full of the fragrant of fruit, left me a rich and colorful memory to recall. Coconut tree become a main mark the sanya trip on the beach, I remember the sweet and delicious coconut milk down my throat. Under the hot sun baked, cool coconut milk has become a... More

If you are visiting as a couple or a solo traveller this may not be the beach for you. I found that there were too many families with young children, mainly Chinese tourists as this was during a national holiday

Yes the beach might look smaller and more busy but this place is near the city, clean and safe with life guards on duty and facilities for dining and shopping just near the beach. To me the best bay in town if you look for a day filled location. Other bays might be more private but you basically just have... More

We live in Banshan Bandao so this is our largest local beach. It is clean, good quality sand with quite a large number of restaurants overlooking the bay. The water appears pretty clean and the shore shelves slowly so its good for kids, there are also a few vendors offering things like jet ski's. Overall very good but a bit... More

This is adjacent to my hotel. So there were always free sun loungers available. Nor so wide forward but stretches for miles left and right. Fun family friendly beach but good solo also. Nice sand and goid waves. I liked it during the evening especially. Very much recommend this beach. Less crowded than yalong bay and sanya bay.

Dadonghai beach to me seems better than Yalong and more afordable. There is a lot of space on the beach and a lot of stuff to do and places to eat near the beach.

I loved this beach, it's really clean and has a nice view. Sanya bay in my opinion does not have a nice view. When I was there there were a lot of ships. Dadonghai does not have this.

It's not fancy, but it's a good family friendly beach. Easy to get to and not so expensive to stay nearby. Pay attention to the lifeguards and the tides, but know that the 'Swimming is Strictly Prohibited' does not mean it is not OK to swim here. In high surf there may be riptides, but most of the week we... More

The beach is very nice, however the lifeguards assume people can't swim so they make everyone swim in the designated area where the Chinese people just hang out on their floaties. I didn't like that at all... what's the point of enjoying the wide open ocean in a little area with a bunch of other people? I can understand if... More
