Holiday Beach & Shimei Bay

Holiday Beach

Holiday Beach is a major recreational resort in the west of Haikou City, in Hainan Province. The beach, some six kms (about 3.7 miles) long, enjoys a wonderful climate (average temperature of 75.2°F), with sparkling waters, waving coconut trees, and plenty of sunshine and blue skies. The resort has four zones:

Sea Sports

Here, one can enjoy swimming, sail-boarding, kayaking, or just lazing on the beach. Just whatever takes your fancy.

Food and Culture

The Guanjingtai Plaza provides excellent sightseeing and a wide variety of restaurants and bars to satisfy every palate. The International Fishing Club offers high-tech fishing tools and makes you enjoy the happiness of fishing.

The Fun Section

This offers a wide range of family entertainment: the Music Square, a roller-skating course, a Children's Movement Center, the Kingdom of Butterflies, and much more. Especially popular is the World above Water with its water ballet and diving presentations.


This  beach provides accommodation in a relaxing environment: everything from villas and chalets to tents and hammocks is comfortable, clean and safe.

An unusual feature of the Holiday Beach Resort is the 'kissing fish'. These fish can live happily in 104F water, and they will nibble at your body to provide delightful underwater skin-cleansing care. So weird!

Take Bus 28, 35, 37, 40, 57, 57 Express, 78, 86, 86 Express, or Tourist Bus 6 to Jiari Haitan (Holiday Beach).

Shimei Bay

Have you always looked for your Xanadu? Why not come to Shimei Bay for a memorable holiday?

Located on the southeast coast of Wanning City, Hainan Province, about 160 kilometers (about 100 miles) south of Haikou City, Shimei Bay is made up of two crescent-shaped bays. Thanks to the sea and surrounding mountains, this bay displays beautiful natural scenery.

Here tourists can enjoy a mild climate, sunlight and fresh air all year with a soft clean beach surrounded by an exotic 4,000-year-old evergreen forest (Vatica mangachapoi Blanco) which stretches for several tens of kilometers. With the blue mountains, clean water, exquisite beach, the elegant coconut trees and the charming Li Minority Group fishing houses, it is considered to be the most beautiful unexploited bay in Hainan by the World Tourism Organization.

The best entertainment there includes swimming, collecting seashells or sipping coffee in a café. In addition, a variety of activities await those who are energetic and fond of challenge. Korean style diving can satisfy tourists ages eight to eighty. Fishing by the seashore, on a boat, or on an island is also amazing. Dangling from a parachute with a rope tied to a speedboat is exciting as you experience flying to better appreciate the unique and charming scenery.

While here, you must taste the delicious seafood. Like many other places in Hainan, Shimei Bay abounds with various fish and crabs.

The bay is an ideal leisure destination destined to become an international seashore resort emphasizing ecological tourism and dedicated to quality service. It is an excellent choice for your holiday.

How to get to Shimei Bay

Take a bullet train to Wanning Railway Station and then take a taxi to the bay.
