Definitely MUST see if you are in Sanya.

Food & Restaurants - Yes and yes! And you should try something new!

We spent 4 days in the village. It's a great place with plenty of places to go to and eat in the evenings. Bars and restaurants a plenty! The beach is only really used to learn how to surf. If you are a beach goer and watch to relax on the beach this wouldn't be the beach to go to. We took ebikes and went to Haitang Beach to enjoy the sea. We enjoyed our stay here and would come back for the restaurants and bars in the evening.
Getting There - 25-30min from Haitang Beach (50min from the airport)
Attractions - a small surfing village with some bars on the beach and plenty of western food choices
Hotels - Sanya Night and summer surf Hotel
We spent a couple of nights in this little village and really enjoyed our evenings in Houhai. While in the morning it's very quiet, it gets busy and vibrant during the evening hours. We saw nice bars on the beach with good cocktails and live music. Many people speak English here, so we didn't have any problem with getting around this little place!
In the morning there are people practicing surfing, the beach is not that good for swimming, so we were exploring different areas of Sanya during the day.
This hotel is the perfect spot for those of you who want to enjoy the Sanya waves in the day and wind down in the evening!
Address - No.88 Tenghai Community, Haitang Bay, Sanya, 572000, Hainan, China
Ambiance/Facilities - The rooms are large, clean and modern with an excellent balcony view of the ocean. The hotel itself has a very chilled vibe and I would 100% stay again.
Highlights - The pool overlooks the beach and is an ideal place to relax before surfing. The hotel has surfboards and paddle-boards available to hire for the day for a reasonable price. I paid 80rmb for the surfboard and 150rmb for the paddle-board. The hotel is located next to a number of cool and quirky bars and restaurants that are cheap, fun and all within walking distance.
Avg. Price per Person - £75-£120 a night depending on time of travel
