Dadonghai lies between Luhuitou Park and Yulin Port. The gleaming soft sand beach stretches for 2.1 km (1.3 miles). The beach, surrounded by mountains on three sides, is fringed with rows of coconut trees while crystal clear seawater laps the white sandy beach. Compared with Yalong Bay and Sanya Bay, the beach is only 10 minutes' drive from downtown Sanya, so it is the most popular and lively beach in the area.

Dadonghai Beach enjoys pleasant temperatures year round with warm water and little rainfall, the average temperature in January is 20.7°C (69.26°F), making Dadonghai Beach an ideal resort for you to swim at and enjoy warm sunshine rather than the freezing winter conditions elsewhere. In winter, the surface of the sea is as smooth and peaceful as a mirror, reflecting the blue sky, white clouds and green mountains. In the distance, you will see a harmonious view of the sea and the sky melting into one another. There are also many other aquatic activities for you to enjoy, including diving, yachting, motorboat excursions and fishing.

About three or four hundred meters east of the beach, there is a coastal park, where you can stand on a hill and look out over the gorgeous land and seascape. There is also an Egret Park not far from the beach, where you can observe egrets in their natural habitat.
