There are plenty of trails in Sanya that are great for running, where runners can enjoy Sanya’s lovely environment while keeping fit at the same time.


Here’s a primer on some of the best spots to run in Sanya.


Luhuitou Peninsula Road 鹿回头海景大道


The Luhuitou Peninsula at the natural crescent dual-bay of Xiaodonghai offers both green scenery and rich marine life. In fact, the peninsula is perfect for running, as the roads have idyllic quiet lanes that rise and fall in altitude around the mountains, yielding spectacular views.


It’s an ideal escape for anyone who wants to stretch their legs in the midst of a beautiful, verdant setting.


Sanya Bay 三亚湾


For soft sand running along the trail, runners pick Sanya Bay, especially at dawn when the scene is more serene.


Here runners can run through an area called Coconut Dream Corridor and enjoy the sweeping ocean views.


The run is relatively easy and flat through the long Sanya Bay Beach.


Yalong Bay 亚龙湾


Yalong Bay is also a charming location for casual runners. The well-paved roads are good for all age groups.


Along the trail route, joggers will come across many international high-end resorts and enjoy the pure blue sky and the endless blue sea.



Egret Park 白鹭公园


Most fitness enthusiasts in Sanya will know Egret Park at Fenghuang Road. The Egret Park is a good place for running with excellent pavement, bitumen roads, cycle ways and jogging tracks.


The path is lovely through the trees, and the park is very central. One can see scores of people jogging – some in organized groups, and some with their headphones on. The trail around the park is about 3 km.


For those who fancy a longer run, they can keep going along Fenghuang Road, Linchun River Road and Xinfeng Road for a round trip journey of about 6 km.
