Sanya Surf Circus is a surf club with surfboard and SUP lessons and rentals, as well as a full restaurant and bar on the beach, with a complete bar and food menu featuring imported and local beer, and traditional Italian food including pizza, pasta, sandwiches, salads, and more. Fill up with breakfast, lunch, and dinner menus and wash it down with smoothies, fresh juice, coffee, and mixed drinks.
Sanya Surf Circus is open daily from 10:00am – 12:00 with extended hours on Friday and Saturday night for beach parties which typically close around 3:00am (people are free to stay on the beach after we shut down). Parties typically feature dancing on the beach, fire-shows, bongo performances, and lots of fun - ask anyone around and they’ll tell you our beach parties are not to be missed.
Sanya Surf Circus is located on the sand – under the boardwalk – on Dadonghai Beach in Sanya on Hainan Island (China). We are about 30 minutes from Sanya Airport, and there are several hostles, cheap hotels, and low-cost apartment rentals within a few blocks, with easy access to main bus routes. To get here, go to Dadonghai and head down Hai Hua Road all the way to the beach. From the parking lot, walk directly to the sand, and turn left (if you’re facing the beach). About 100 meters up the beach you will pass a bar nestled under the boardwalk with surfboard racks and colorful seating and umbrellas on the sand.
