Yàlóng Bay information
Lonely Planet review
Yalong Bay is undoubtedly more attractive and less crowded, though with fewer shops and vendors budgeters might want to bring their own food and water. It offers a wide range of activities, including jet-skiing, banana boats, snorkelling and diving. China's beaches are theoretically open to everyone but at Yalong Bay there is a quasi-official fee if you're not staying at one of the beachfront resorts. To avoid this, walk through one of the hotels rather than entering the beach from the main square.
