Photographer's Note

Dodanghai Beach is adjacent to the much touted Sanya Beach, which I found to be over rated. This beach was much nicer. Especially in January when the maximum in Wuxi / Shanghai was +2c and here it was 25c. Hainan Island is as far south as you can go in China and is further south than some parts of northern Vietnam! Sanya and Dodanghai are on the south coast of Hainan and get nicknamed 'China's Hawaii'. The bases of the coconut palms are painted with a white insecticide to prevent beetle larvae and grubs eating the wood and weakening the trees during typhoons and storms.

"Da Dong Hai" literally means "Big East Sea"
