Hainan is an island in the southern China. Tough travel agencies advertise it as a tropical paradise, but its beaches are mediocre and packed with crowds of tourists. Beach and seabed: sand, stones. [edit]

How to get there [edit]

Fly to Sanya Phoenix International Airport (SYX). Then hire a taxi. Also you may fly to Haikou Meilan International Airport (HAK), but it located in the north of island - far from best beaches. You can move around the island by buses, but it can be hard to understand how local transport is working.

When to go [edit]

Rainy season lasts from May to October, but sea water is warm during this period. On the other hand from November to April there are no rains, but the water is cold. Therefore, the optimal time for a beach holiday in the island of Hainan is spring and autumn.

Most sandflies were in Sanya. But it was quite fine in Dadonghai.

And many reports say, that Sanya is a bad place due to sandflies. But it depends on the season.

Sandflies on the beaches of Hainan.

I plan to visit Hainan in April. I've read, that sandflies are are real problem, which can spoil the vacation. Is it really so bad?
