Sanya’s ‘nudist beach’ on Dadonghai sparks debate in China
Sanya is a popular tourist destination in China. The so called nudist beach lies on Da Dong Hai (Great East Sea) beach, is only three kilometers from Sanya. It has become increasingly common to see groups of people chatting and playing cards in the nude at the far end of the beach.
There is no sign posted to inform tourists that the area is for nudists, and there have been reports of embarrassing encounters between clothed and nude beach goers.
An internet user called "yilunanfeng" said that the beach used to be frequented by foreigners on vacation, but gradually more and more Chinese tourists took over the nudist beach.
Perhaps in a contest of traditional values, most of the naked sun bathers are middle-aged men.
"Yilunanfeng" advised that the local government should set up a notice to remind people that there is a nude beach here.
