With over 258 kilometers of shoreline, Sanya is home to some of the most beautiful beaches and coastal scenery in Asia. Featuring very warm weather all year around, the coastal resort city is nestled among hills, with two quiet rivers running through it. The city is one of the most popular tourist destinations in China, which led to its being chosen to host the FINA World Aquatics Gala and Awards Dinner “Soirée des Etoiles.”
