Luhuitou Park

Stroll meandering paths while contemplating the legends of Sanya's past at the beautiful and romantic Luhuitou Park.
Luhuitou Park dominates a hill overlooking Sanya, offering perfect panoramas with a dash of local culture. Translating to "deer turning its head back," Luhuitou's grounds were supposedly the sight where a young hunter took aim at a deer he had been pursuing for nine days. Upon turning around, the deer metamorphosed into a beautiful woman with whom the hunter fell in love. Countless lovers have made the trek to Luhuitou's peak to place a padlock along a chain as a symbol of the transformative power of love. A statue commemorating the legend of the deer is located at the end of the hiking trail. Numerous other locations along the path to the peak allow visitors to interact with nature and get a sweeping view of the bay below.
