Cuisines in Sanya

Cuisines in SanyaSurrounded by the South China Sea's abundant seafood resources, Sanya boasts some great restaurants serving up good fresh seafood. Added to this, there are two huge fisheries here, the Beibuwan Fishery and the South China Sea Fishery. 

Abalone, sea cucumber and other exotic foods are common dishes served in restaurants here, and a visit to the port area in the city center is testament to the incredible wealth and freshness of the food here.
