Phoenix Island LED light shows on high rises dazzle Sanya Bay
Sanya Bay, dubbed as the Coconut Dream Corridor, is one of the major bays in Sanya. It stretches about 22 km from the Phoenix Island to Tianya Bay.
Sanya Bay is a favorite public beach in day and night. In daytime, lots of residents and tourists come to here to enjoy the ocean, morning exercises, dog walking and so many more. As the sun goes down, the bay plays host to wealth of folk activities. People will congregate here and do dancing, singing or just have a good time.
After watching the sunset on the Sanya Bay beach, you can continue to have your attention turned to the spectacular light show performed on the Phoenix Island, an impressive icon in the city.
Few places in the city provide an atmosphere as impressive as Phoenix Island’s. The artificial island lies in the middle of Sanya’s “sunshine center,” surrounded by the sea and connected to downtown Sanya by a 390-meter-long bridge.
The island features five 99.8-meter-tall high-rise buildings, whose designs are rich in cultural and pictorial splendor, giving visitors the impression that a flaming phoenix sculpture is flying in the sky.
The other main draw of Phoenix Island is its breathtaking light show. The exterior of the island’s buildings make up the largest integrated LED screen in Asia, which are wrapped in approximately 33,000 linear meters of LED lights, glowing in numerous shades of color in the sky.
The LED light displays start from 7:30 p.m. until 10:30 p.m., featuring breathtaking scenes inspired by Hainan’s marine culture, folk traditions, and festival celebration, such as tropical fish and dolphins swimming across the sky, and blue-white jellyfish glowing in the dark.
New generation multifunctional video technology is used to ensure that the lighting effects on the buildings are captivating and unforgettable.
The illuminated display is considered one of the best light shows in the country, making it a permanent part of the nightscape along the Sanya Bay and a landmark in Sanya.
