Beach
Seashore
Yulinzhou is a sea area in the west of Hainan. It was already a scenic spot in Hainan during the Kangxi period of the Qing Dynasty. The sand of Yulinzhou is different from that of most beaches. The sand mainly consists of small stone sand, with relatively large sand particles. There are reefs on the coast and a lighthouse standing on a rocky hill. Here, you can listen to the waves and savor the sea breeze, ideal for natural bathing.
Datian Eld's Deer Reserve
3.7/5
64 Reviews
Zoo
Like the giant panda and the golden monkey, the Eld's deer is also a first class national rare animal. It has a beautiful posture and resembles a sika deer, but its horn is forward-curved. Such an obvious feature makes it worth appreciation. Being good at running and jumping, an Eld's deer can jump over a 5-meter-wide gully when it is startled. The Eld's deer have sharp visual, auditory and olfactory senses. The male deer rely on the sound to search for a spouse while the female deer call their babies by the sound also. Even if they are one kilometer apart, the deer can hear each other. Standing in the watchtower of the reserve, you can see the deer playing.
Exian Ridge
4.4/5
26 Reviews
Mountain
Exian Ridge is also known as Eniang Jiufeng Mountain. Exian Cave is on the mountain. According to legend, long ago, there was a crow demon in the cave that took captive a girl from the Li people. Her name was Eniang. On March 3 of that year. Agui, the girl’s sweetheart, took a sharp knife and a bow and arrow to the mountain in a failed rescue attempt that resulted in his being killed by the crow. The girl killed the crow in its sleep as an act of revenge for her sweetheart’s death. Afterward, on the third day of March, the girl went to the cave to sing the love song she and Agui sang together. Hence, the place was named after her. Years later, a traditional festival developed on March 3 at which all unmarried men and women from around the city gather to sing love songs.
