Renowned as the “Hawaii of the East,” Hainan Island is a tropical paradise situated just off the southern coast of China in the South China Sea. As China’s premier resort destination, it offers everything from palm-fringed, white-sand beaches and clear waters to gentle winds, mountains, and an abundance of sunshine. Situated in Sanya on the southern part of the island, instinctive hospitality awaits you at The Westin Sanya Haitang Bay Resort. Nestled along the striking Haitang Bay, we are just a 30-minute drive from Sanya Phoenix International Airport (SYX).
Elevate your senses with a refreshing swim in the sea, hunt for seashells on the beach, soak up nurturing sunshine, or enjoy one of many watersport activities. Golf aficionados can choose from the array of prestigious golf courses throughout the island, a number of which are located in and around Sanya. Relax among nature in the butterfly enclosure at Sanya Butterfly Valley. Located near Longtan Lake, it is home to thousands of rare and beautiful butterflies and an exhibition centre featuring additional insects. Exotic marine life can be found at the Sanya Sea Shell Museum.
Take an excursion to the center of the island to enjoy an invigorating trek to Wuzhi Mountain, Hainan’s highest mountain that is also known as Five Finger Mountain. More adventurous travelers can paddle on a river raft down the exhilarating rapids of the 163-kilometer Wanquan River. On the southern part of the island, the picturesque Tianya Haijiao and the Nanshan Culture Tourism Zone are other enriching possibilities. The latter features three theme parks, one of which is dedicated to Buddhist culture. After a full day of activities, re-energize your body with Hainan’s famed fresh seafood, including delectable crabs.
