With a length of around 12 kilometers, Haikou Bay is a natural wonder facing the Qiongzhou Strait, which separates Hainan Island, in the South China Sea, from the Leizhou Peninsula in Guangdong, southern Mainland China.
The fusion of the beauty of the sea with the silhouette of Haikou, capital of Hainan province, has made this part of the city a trendy place, which changes overnight.
During the morning, Haikou Bay invites visitors to take a dip in Bund Haikou, an extension of the beach in the area. But, also to eat and drink in one of the bars and restaurants available here, boasting pleasant terraces.
For sports lovers, why not go jogging or cycling along the Haidian River, close to the Haikou Century Bridge?
This area of Haikou has been transformed into a natural haven where you can also drop by at seafood stalls while enjoying the surroundings and taking a breath of fresh air.
A good time to visit and enjoy Bund Haikou is when the sun starts to set. It is when the city of Haikou starts filling with light, illuminating the water and enticing visitors to a dinner perfumed by the sea breeze. To get a table, it is best to book in advance, especially at weekends, when Haikou Bay becomes the focal point for tourists and locals.
