Eating in Sanya:|
Because Sanya is surrounded by the South China Sea, seafood is abundant with excellent restaurants serving up good fresh dishes, some directly from fisheries.
Restaurants frequently serve their dishes accompanied with abalone, cucumber and other tropical fruits or exotic foods. The seafood might include squid, sea slugs, reef fish, scallops as well as lobster, mussels and crab.
The marine fauna of the area is long fished out; consequently, most of the seafood comes from Indonesia and the Philippines and the number of fisheries has highly increased.
