WuZhiZhou Island is home to the legend of love
Located off the northeast coast of South China’s Hainan Island, this 1.5 sq km islet offers abundant tropical marine life and a wide range of beach activities for couples all year round.
Active tourists can enjoy windsurfing, speedboat rides, banana boating, canoeing, para-sailing, beach motorcycling and sea parachute jumping.
Wuzhizhou is also one of the very few islands in China featuring crystal clear seawater, white sand beaches and coral reefs.
Close to the beach, light blue waves break around the bay, and the transparent water allows you to see everything on the white sand bottom. Looking into the distance, the sea turns a milky-blue, and looking further away it becomes deep blue like ink.
The richness of the colors is not the only thing that makes this island attractive - it is also a paradise for divers. The sea is teeming with colorful tropical fish, sea cucumber, lobster, sierra, pomfret, luminous whelk as well as well-preserved coral reefs.
In addition, there is a rich variety of plant life on the island. It is home of more than 2,700 kinds of plants, including tall trees and dense bushes.
With its idyllic and romantic surroundings, it’s no surprise that the island has its own romantic legend about a young fisherman and a pretty girl that once lived on the islet long ago.
On one fateful day, they met and started to chat, finding that they had a lot in common. Soon enough they fell in love, but when the girl’s father, found out about their love affair, he locked his daughter away.
She tried to escape back into the arms of the young fisherman, but this made her father furious. To punish her, the Dragon King cast a spell that turned the lovers into two big stones that would stand forever on the island silently facing one another.
Since then, Wuzhizhou has become a popular meeting place for young lovers who take an oath to be faithful to each other forever.
Lovers can enjoy a 360-degree view on a "lovers' bridge" that has been built next to a little pavilion.
