Wuzhizhou Tourism Zone

There is a Hainan in China, and there is a Wuzhizhou Tourism Zone scenic spot in Hainan. This is the slogan written on each yacht here. What a proud and magnificent sentence! The blue sky, the swaying coconut trees, the undulating sea, make the Wuzhizhou Tourism Zone in Sanya so beautiful. If you want to play on the Wuzhizhou Tourism Zone, you have to take a boat.

As the most beautiful island in Hainan, Wuzhizhou Tourism Zone is a privatized island. Inside the Haitang Bay, you can look at the seven-star hotel Atlantis. The sea water is in a three-tone color. It has the same meaning as the border island. The beach quality is not as good as Yalong Bay, as it has more impurities, so you should pay attention to the safety when you are on the sand barefoot. On the edge of the reef, you can pick up small pieces of coral. Wuzhizhou Tourism Zone is a fully developed holiday island with complete facilities and convenient travel. The Wuzhizhou Tourism Zone is steep and straight into the seabed, and it is spectacular. The central forests and meadows are undulating and green. The northern beach is calm and sandy, and the sand is white and delicate.

The Lovers Bridge on the island is an important location for the movie ” Personal Tailor”. It was originally a cable bridge and is a point of view at sea. Walking on the swaying cable bridge takes a bit of courage and cleverness. Playing in Wuzhizhou Tourism Zone is sure to experience a trip to the sea. The island’s related attractions can be seen on the yacht and it is the most cost-effective project.

Since the Wuzhizhou Tourism Zone is a private island, the price of commodities in the island is expensive and exceeds the average price of all Sanya Bay water projects. It takes 128 Yuan per people on the island buffet, all kinds of special snacks are basically more than 40 yuan. It is recommended to travel to the Wuzhizhou Tourism Zone for a day trip by joining the tour group as the traffic from the city to the Wuzhizhou Tourism Zone is not very convenient.

Yalong Bay

Yalong Bay is worthy of the title of “the first bay in the world”. The sand is fine, the wind and waves are small, the sea is clean, the hotel is high-end, and the beach is mostly the hotel’s private beach, which is unmatched by Sanya Bay and Dadonghai and Haitang Bay which has a large wind and waves, and is impossible to swim in the sea all the year round.

Yalong Bay is actually the most worthwhile attraction in Sanya to visit. Its coastal hotel groups are distinctive and well-designed. The disadvantage of Yalong Bay is that the consumption is expensive. The price of the five-star hotel on the beach are almost over one thousand yuan, but they are indeed good value for money. The whole bay is far from the city, although it is closer than Haitang Bay, it is still more suitable for self-driving tourists. In recent years, with the completion of a number of commercial streets such as Baihuagu and LOVE CUBIC, there have been many catering and shopping near the Yalong Beach. It is very convenient to eat, drink and have fun there.

The waters of Yalong Bay are blue and clear, with high visibility and white sand as jade. The annual average sea temperature here is 22-25.1 degrees Celsius, and you can swim all year round. It was named as one of the eight largest bays in the country by National Geographic magazine. It is a place worth visiting.

Known as the clearest bay in Sanya, Yalong Bay is worthy of its name. The sea water is gradually changed from light blue to blue to dark blue. The sun is shining, but the sea is cool. It is very comfortable for swimming.

It’s very enjoyable to go to Yalong Bay in winter, it’s a funny place that many people have been yearning for. The water is really clear, diving is also very interesting, all kinds of sea projects are pretty good, and the scenery is very beautiful. Fruit and lunch are also very delicious in Yalong Bay too.
