Yalong Bay

Yalong Bay, also known as Asian Dragon Bay, sits roughly on the same latitude as Hawaii and enjoys similar temperatures and weather conditions. It is farther from Sanya downtown than Dadonghai beach and has been developed into an international holiday center with multiple 5 star resorts, golf courts etc. Eight Kilometers (about five miles) of white sand stretches along the crystal water, backed by palm trees and lush green hills. The water here is wonderfully clear, reflecting the blue sky.
