Dadonghai is one of Sanya's cleanest beaches, situated about 3 km from the centre of the city and just off the main road. The water temperature is about 20C degrees even in winter, hence its reputation as an ideal spot for winter holidaying and relaxation. The beach's close proximity to the city means that it can get very busy here but this remains a pleasant and convenient spot to kick off your shoes, soak up the rays and swim in the sea. Like most of the beaches around Sanya, this is a truly tropical beach with 3 km of white sand curving round a crescent shaped bay, warm blue seas and palm trees.
Facilities here are good too. Scuba diving and other water sports are popular and cheapest comparison with Yalong Bay and Sanya Bay, and there are numerous restaurants and bars serving up tasty snacks and drinks, and there is a big shopping mall - Summer Mall for those staying at Dadonghai. It is particularly pleasant here in the evenings, when the sun sets and the crowds disapear.
