Island · Nature / Park
Explore pristine coral reefs underneath emerald-green waters and enjoy fine beaches at Wuzhizhou Coral Island, a 1.48 sq km (0.6 sq mi) islet just off the main Hainan Island. With its own source of freshwater, over 2,700 plant varieties grow here, including some of the oldest species in the world. Follow the boardwalk jutting far into the sea, or tour the island in an electric golf cart. You can visit a temple honoring the goddess Matsu, or climb the 80 m (260 ft) high cliff to watch the crashing waves. The island lies some 30 km (18.6 mi) from Sanya city, whose skyline is visible across Haitang Bay. Ferries from Wuzhizhou Wharf run regularly to the island.
