Sanya is a good tourism resort in all weather and all year round. The temperature comes to its climax in June when an average temperature of 28 C (82 F), but it still feels rather cool in the mornings and evenings thanks to the ocean breezes. Even in the coldest February, the temperature still remains around 20 C (68 F).


The temperature averages at 20 C (68 F) in spring from March to mid-May, when a short-sleeved shirt and skirt or pants is enough at the day. However, be prepared to wear more in the early morning and at night, when the weather is cool.

There is an important traditional festival of the local Li and Miao minorities on the 3rd day of March in the lunar calendar, when ethnic songs and dances are performed.


The climate of local summer, late May to mid-September, is a little hot and humid when the highest temperature can reach 36 C (97 F). A short-sleeved shirt and light skirt or pants are proper during this season. If you love to be in the ocean, it is strongly recommended that you bring several changes of clothes with you, because once your clothes are washed, they won't dry quickly due to the humid climate. Typhoons occasionally occur during this season, so also take rain wear with you.
