Sanya Chunyuan Seafood Square
Thanks to the accessibility of the ocean and the expansive local fishing fleet, Sanya boasts a wide variety of seafood delicacies available at the many seafood restaurants and stalls in the city.

The quality of the seafood in Sanya is famous for its extreme freshness. The local restaurants offer some of the freshest catches from up and down China's southeast coast.

If you’re lucky enough not to be hampered by an allergy to the sea-dwelling creatures and, even better, love the taste, the following are some of the top places to enjoy seafood in the city.

1. Sanya No.1 Market
If you enjoy your seafood on a budget and are ready and willing to enjoy it in a casual setting, head to the Sanya No.1 Market.

Sanya No.1 Market is a well-known seafood supermarket in Sanya. Here you can buy live seafood and then take it around the corner to a crowded street where all the restaurants will cook the seafood for you for a small fee per dish.

Meanwhile, it's the most crowded night market in Sanya. You will find a constant assortment of musicians and kids that sell flowers to proposition you while you are eating.

It's a great way to save money on eating seafood because there is no markup for the seafood because you purchased the seafood yourself. It's quite a lively environment with guitarists playing, saxophonists playing, customers singing and beer flowing all night long.

Transportation: by bus, take No.1, 2, 4, 7, 8, 12, 15, 16, 22, or 31 as well as mini buses 3 and 4 and then get off at the No.1 Market bus stop.

2. Chunyuan Seafood Square
Chunyuan Seafood Square is one place that is highly recommended by nearly all locals.

The set up is a giant open air seating space under a roof. Upon your arrival, you'll be hustled by reps for the different cooking stalls trying to get you to sit in their areas.

You can pick up fresh crabs or still-squirming white shrimp, or just about any seafood can be delivered from local nets and then they will prepare it to your liking in about 15 minutes when dining here.

Besides the fish and veggies, there are people walking around selling fresh fruit and prepared foods like dumplings or coconut rice.

Address: Hexi Road, Hexi District, Sanya
Transportation: getting there by bus, take No. 3 or 12 or mini buses No. 2 or 4, and then get off at Chunyuan Seafood Square bus stop

3. Donghai Longgong Restaurant (East China Sea Dragon Palace)

Located close to the ocean, and catering for both tourists and locals looking for top-notch seafood, Donghai Longgong Restaurant is one of the most popular seafood restaurants in the Dadonghai area.

The restaurant offers a wide selection of seafood dishes at affordable prices.

Eating and looking out over the ocean just might remind you to get to the beach, as there is more to enjoy in this town than the food.

5. Hongsha Fishing Raft
If you're looking for great seafood right off the dock, the most famous place for this service in Sanya is the Hongsha Fishing Raft.

The Hongsha fish rafts area is a region customers can choose the fish and shrimp that are fresh and alive in the seawater for consumption directly from the rafts. The fishing rafts provide dozens of seafood choices and have very good value for the money.

Hongsha is a dock where the Sanya local fishermen, the Dan people, live. The fishing rafts are the place for conducting a unique seafood buffet business. It is best to have your supper there. You can enjoy the seafood with the sea wind and the setting sun as if you have immersed yourself into the life of the fishing families.

Transportation: Take bus No.17 to the last stop, and walk 20 meters to the dock and then take any boat to a restaurant on the sea.
