Sanya has a coastline which extends for 209.1km and includes no less than 19 wonderful bays dotted along its length. Boating has been promoted by the government as a lucrative industry and great efforts have been made to encourage boat owners to come to Sanya. The island now boasts a fantastic selection of sail and motor yachts, of all sizes and levels of luxury. These efforts include great focus in recent years on marina development, chartered operations and sailing events. This is especially evident around Sanya and Yalong bays.
Sanya is world-famous for its fantastic marine environment, and the rapid growth of the boating industry has made exploration of its picturesque bays and islands a great deal more simple and accessible. Several years ago, boating in Sanya was essentially limited to motorboats, but in recent years there has been a huge increase in the number of sailing boats.
