Nanwan Monkey Island
The endangered Macaque monkey species lives here and their habitat is open to visitors. The monkeys roam free here and will approach visitors and even grab food such as bananas right from the hands of tourists. A picturesque gondola journey from downtown Sanya ferries visitors to Monkey Island.
Sanya Nanshan Temple
This place fascinates many, and repulses others. It is a hybrid temple/amusement park and though it was designed to look ancient and venerable, it was built in 1998. Trolley cars ferry guests from one attraction to the next and if tourists wish to do so, they can bang the gong of the purpose built bell tower.
A snorkeling paradise that is becoming increasingly over-run with tourist and diving tours, Wuzhizhou Island still offers relatively clear waters and plentiful schools of tropical fish. Scuba diving classes are run here too, so beginners can return home with a new skill.
