On March 25, 2014, a regular beach cleanup activity organized by Sanya Ocean & Fishery Bureau and Blue Ribbon Ocean Protection Association was held on the beach of Yalong Bay.



The initiative has generated an overwhelming support from the Yalong bay luxury hotel community. A total of 11 hotels in the region including The St.Regis Sanya Yalong Bay, The Ritz-Carlton, Sanya, Sheraton Sanya Resort, Pullman Sanya Yalong Bay Resort & Spa, MGM Grand Sanya Resort and Yalong Bay Mangrove Tree Resort took collective action to keep one of Sanya’s best beaches beautiful.



The cleanup activity started at 3:00pm at St. Regis Yalong Bay Sanya, with more than 200 volunteers working hard to maintain the three kilometer pristine white sandy beach.


The recent Spring Festival holiday has caused a boom in the number of visitors to Yalong Bay, but also brought some concerns over the beach environment. It is necessary to organize regular beach cleanup to raise the public awareness to join in the public welfare works, contributing to the environmental protection and ecological environment construction.
