Sanya city's main spot. All sand bottom, so nothing to be scared of. Surf between the swimming areas. Few surfers, but lots of swimmers to dodge. Also, watch out for boats and jet skis.
The "locals" are expats who are a bunch of wannabe surfers likely to drown in real waves. Given how pathetically inconsistent the waves are, it's obvious they're in Sanya for other dubious reasons. That being said, they are perfectly happy with one-second rides while regarding themselves as pioneers of surfing in China. Watch them disappear during typhoon swells!
99% of the time, it's one-foot waves breaking on the sand. About 2-3 times per year, a typhoon will enter this area, making for fun, head-high+ waves.
