Wuzhizhou Island

  

Lying in Haitang Bay, around 40 km north to Sanya, has an area of 1.48 square km and looks primitive as mountain, sea and forest remaining their natural conditions.

Wuzhizhou Island was known as Guqizhou Island in ancient times and the earliest records date from the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911), when a temple was built to commemorate the originator of Chinese characters, Cang Jie. Following the Qing Government's fall from power, the villagers rebuilt the temple to honor the Goddess Matsu, who bestowed good fortune on the local fishermen. From 1949 Wuzhizhou Island became an important strategic defense zone. However, from the 1990s, the island began to enjoy a completely new role as a romantic place for holiday and leisure.

 

As the island is in a tropical marine zone, the climate is temperate and pleasant all year round. The Island is in irregular shape like a butterfly with clear water and white sand beach, there are well-preserved coral reefs on the seabed undersea. It is good for those who love scuba diving, winter swimming, as well as other water sports include surfing,gliding,sailing and canoeing. For relaxation there is sun bathing and sea water bathing. Wuzhizhou Island is famous for scuba diving as coral reefs and brightly colored tropical fish abound in the warm water.
