It is the cultural diversity and beautiful tropical environment which have given Sanya a wealth of tourism resources and opportunities. Marine parks, ancient temples, hillside reserves, beaches; islets, tropical rainforest parks and botanical gardens, all of these and more are only a short trip from the centre of Sanya, and can be easily visited as a half or full day trip.
There is a variety of well-developed water sports and beach activities including diving, surfing, speed-boating, jet skiing, diving and snorkeling. There is also a low-altitude aerial sight-seeing trips including helicopter and seaplane flights. The vast sea area has made yachting, sailing and sea cruises ever more popular for holidaymakers.
Being the only China’s tropical resort city, Sanya has long been a city of sun and fun, its cultural diversity has added more flavours to the resort city which is reflected through a wide range of performing arts and entertainment.
