Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Our friends had recommended us Yalong bay beach, so we had to see it. It was a beautiful beach. Compared to Sanya beach there were also some bars, water sports and more people in the beach. However, it was just a beach with a view.

I took the #25 bus. It was about an hour trip but only cost 7 rmb. I went during low season so not too many people which is ok with me. Nice white sand beach and in my opinion the best water I've seen in China. They have the usual beach activities suck as water jet skis, banana boat and parasailing. Plus there is a park that runs along side the coast, good for taking lots of pictures.

Happy to find a beach in Sanya that allows year-round swimming. A little disappointed by the overcrowding of water sports and commercialization. Nearly impossible to snorkel with all the boats and vendors. Nice sand and water, especially at the MGM Grand Sanya.

We go on the beach for drive and water sports. It’s interesting. Recommend. Good place for long walk. White beach and clean sea. A lot of tourists but you have a lot of place for dinner).

If you are going to do a tour of China, definitely put Sanya on your short list. We’ve stayed at a couple of different areas in Sanya. Yalong Bay has great views and clean water. There’s some food options but if you want more selection plan to visit the “summer” mall area.

Beautiful artwork cast onto the beach by the sea. Some where out for a relaxing beach walk, while others where pulling in their nets with a nice catch of assorted sea-life.

Few people were at the beach on Symmetrical Day, 20200202, being year 2020, second month (February, 02), and second day (02). Normally during Spring Festival, the beach would b crowded. This year, due to the coronavirus crisis, 98% of the usual visitors obeyed the travel ban, and stayed away.

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

To me, travel is sort of a relaxing activity rather than a ‘going everywhere’ activity. So, the I’m going to talk about probably the best place to relax in China.
The best place I know is probably Sanya. It has beautiful beaches, amazing hotels, and great fruits since it has tropical climates. I go to Sanya for nearly every year, and it won’t cost much for a 1-week trip, 7500RMB is already enough. Usually, I’ll go to YaLong Bay and stay at a hotel named TianYu Hotel for 5-7 days. Meanwhile, there’s a small pedestrian mall near the hotel, and it’s a really good place to wander around. In the hotel, there are restaurants, but I don’t really recommend eating there since it’s really expensive. But if you enjoy so I won’t stop you.
The beach is the best part to tell, since if there’s sea there should be a reasonably sized beach. It contains really pure, smooth sand, and is sure to enjoy. Down in the sea, there will be lots of fun too since the waves are really fun to play with.
