This is as far east as you can go on Dadonghai Beach. Taken looking back towards Sanya in the west over that headland. I've done a little burning & dodging and added some saturation & density.
Hainan is often cited as China's Hawaii. It's actually further south than most of northern Vietnam. And gets on average at least 1 typhoon or hurricane every year.

Bonjour, cher Chris,
Une bien jolie plage malgré la probabilité d'un typhon ou d'un ouragan par an !
Bel effet de perspective avec cet environnement d'immeubles de grande hauteur. La présence de palmiers offre un spectacle bien agréable.

Hello Chris ,
This composition is really excellent , each element at the right place . Even there is too much people for my taste (as i've ever said) , this is an ineteresting mix of nature and modern architecture .
Well done .

Your composition is great using the path to lead the eye into the shot. The curving beach leads the eye through the scene nicely. The lighting is great and the photo has nice shaprness. The palm trees provide nice framing for the busy beach scene.

another fascinating shot of tropical China. Beautifully composed and enticing image that looks so idyllic. Verdant greens and a threatening sky make it so effective.
Have a good week - Brian.

The distance between the beach and the mountains is giving depth to the composition. You have captured well the activities on the beach. a goos manaement of the strong light which does not hurt the ouput of the colors. Have a nice day.

J'aimerais bien être sur cette plage aujourd'hui et profiter du sable chaud et de la mer. Finalement, il y a des palmiers que je n'avais pas vu dans la première version.

Last summer, we had only one day in Sanya and chose to visit Tian Ya Hai jiao. Yes it was beautiful, but the weather was not cooperated.
I know you put a lot of efforts to make picture gorgeous. It yielded a great result.

It started hot and such images make you want to travel. I do like the exotic atmosphere which cretaes the palmtrees. The idyllic holiday scenery.
Have a nice evening,

Hi Chris, Another fine shot of these Chinese Hawaii. Nice place, beautiful sandy beach, I wonder what is this green plant covering the ground in fg. excellent compiosition, even the mountain looks like a volcano. fantastic depth and sharpness.

Hello Chris, This ia great picture of this expansive beach with a view that you can almost see forever. Lots of people here and a excellent compostion with the people and the shoreline. I like the tall buildings included in the background as they provide sensational depth to the shot. Curious about the vegetation in the foreground, I note that it is not farther down so I imagine this is by a beach access point. So, look forward to some more pics from China. Kind Regards, Roger
