The climate in Yalong Bay is temperate, with the blue sky, warm sunshine, fresh air, the rolling mountains, various rocks, the mangrove, and the tranquil sea, makes the bay picturesque. The coconut trees on the beach, exotic flowers and rare herbs and the vegetations makes the bay much more charming, like a bright pearl shinning in Hainan.

The crystal blue sea, whose visibility is 7 to 9 meters, makes Yalong Bay an ideal place for diving. You can enjoy the undersea world with its multi-colored coral reefs, tropical fish, seabed Fish and Coralstreasures and wild shells.

Besides the attraction of the sea and the beach, there is the Yalong Bay Central Square (yà lóng wān zhōng xīn guǎng chǎng 亚龙湾中心广场), on which there is the totem pillar of 27 meters. Around the pillar, there are the carvings about the Chinese ancient myths and culture. Four white tilts with pinnacle makes the square much more modern. On the square, there is a Museum of Sea Shell (bèi ké guǎn 贝壳馆), covering an area of 3000 square meters. It is the first sea shell museum in China. In the museum you can see more than 300 species of sea shells all over the world. You will be amazed by the divine workmanship by nature. On the north part of the Yalong Bay, there is the Butterfly Valley (hú dié gǔ 蝴蝶谷), where you can appreciate all kinds of the butterflies. All of these will make Yalong Bay more attractive to the tourists.
