The Asian Dragon Bay, which is also known as Yalong Bay is one of the most picturesque locations in Hainan Province, China, that many visit from all over the world. The stretch of pristine golden beach covers an area of 18.6 square kilometres which is about 7.2 square miles, with a total length spanning 7.5-kilometers, which makes this stretch of supreme loveliness three times longer than the mesmerizing and famed beaches found in Hawaii.
The waters of the ocean here are crystal clear, allowing one to gaze into depths of more than 10 metres below the surface. The vibrant marine life, rich with the many colourful shoals of fish and the wonderful formations of coral can be thus seen quite easily by anyone regardless of whether or not they wish to snorkel and dive.
The Asian Dragon Bay is complete with all the facets of blue waters of the sea, white gold pristine sands, the emerald sheen of the rich vegetation of the surrounding area as well as the freshest air, that make up the perfect holiday experience to anyone finding solace in her embrace. Given this sublime beauty and priceless perfection, the Asian Dragon Bay was authorized by the State Council in the year 1992.
The Totem Pole of 27 metres that stands boldly at the centre of the bay is yet another interesting attraction that heightens the significance of this place of beauty yet some more and has intricate engravings of the god of the sun, gods of winds, rain and thunder along with the legendary animals of the dragon, kylin, phoenix and fish. The Butterfly Valley that can be found on the northern end of the Asian Dragon Bay also adds to the allure of this place with its five halls representing the butterfly species of China and the world.
