You mean from the SY city proper or any scenic spot to Nanshan?
If you start from Asian Dragon Bay, you can take the Nanshan Special Line to that place directly. This line will pass the Luhuitou Park, Bailu Park, Dadonghai, Sanya Bay to reach Nanshan.

Or you can take a taxi to that area and the taxi fare is around 60 to 80RMB.
