• Soak up the sun at Sanya’s newest beach
  • Splash around in the South China Sea

Hainan is a haven for sun lovers, and it just so happens that Conrad Sanya is a saunter away from Haitang Bay. This swath of sand, spanning 12 sparkling miles, is also the area’s largest. Far more spacious and quieter than Yalong Bay or Daidonghai, you’ll be left to lounge in peace. As for the ideal set-up? The hotel will pack you off with a chair and an umbrella (or do the heavy lifting and set-up for you). Paddle out into the aquamarine waters in the hotel’s designated swimming area, but be aware that some spots are not safe for a dip.

You’re pretty much already at Haitang Beach and the hotel staff will gladly guide you to the ideal spot.
