Introduction to Sanya Climate
Sanya is a good tourism resort in all weather and all year round. The temperature comes to its climax in June when an average temperature of 28 C (82 F), but it still feels rather cool in the morning and evening thanks to the wind from the sea. Even in the coldest February, the temperature still remains around 20 C (68 F).

The temperature averages at 20 C (68 F) in spring from March to middle May, when a short-sleeved shirt and skirt or pants is enough at the day. However, be prepared to wear more in the morning and the night, when will be slightly colder. It is an important traditional festival of the local Li and Miao minorities on the 3rd day of March in lunar calendar when there will be ethnic songs and dances performed.

Sanya’s summer, late May to middle September, is a little bit hot and humid in summer, when the temperature can reach up to 36 C (97 F). A short-sleeved shirt and skirt or pants is also ok at this season. If you are a diving-lover, it is strongly recommended to bring several changes of clothes with you, because once your clothes are washed, they won't dry quickly due to the humid weather. Typhoons occasionally occur during this season, so take rain wear with you.

In autumn (late September to early December), both the humidity and the temperature drops, and mot of the days are sunny. Long-sleeved shirts and sweaters are advised to wear at this season. If you travel in November, you will encounter the national wedding celebration at Tianya Haijiao. On 9th of September in lunar calendar, Nanshan Leisure Cultural Tourism Festival is held in Sanya, usually lasting for about a week.

Winter in Sanya from middle December to late February is cool and comfortable, with no frost or snow. In spite of the cold winter in other places, here you can still wear your sandals and T-shirt, roaming the seaside under the enjoyable sunshine. For diving-lovers, it is advisable to dive between 11:00-15:00, since the temperature of the sea is a little bit lower on winter mornings and evenings.

Tips: The solar radiation of Sanya is quite damaging at any time of the year, so make sure to take sunscreen with high SPF and water-proofing properties, sunglasses, hat and an umbrella both for preventing the rain and the sunshine with you. Mosquito repellant is also advisable.
