Golden sands and swaying palms await at Tianya Haijiao, one of the country's southernmost points and a popular vacation spot. Stretching along the island's south coast, the area represents the "edge of the world" in local lore. Pay a visit and kick back on the sandy beach, enjoying the sweeping views out over the South China Sea, or don your swimsuit and splash around in the water. You can wander the surrounding waterfront stretch to discover a number of distinctive rocks and boulders, many of which feature inscriptions of famous Chinese poems referencing the cape. Keep your eyes peeled for the "sun and moon rocks" just offshore; supposedly representative of a husband and wife, the rocks indeed resemble two lovers intertwined. Using our custom trip planner, Sanya attractions like Tianya Haijiao can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.
