Another scenic spot is the Lover’s Hill in Sanya Luhuitou Park. Opened in 1989, the park is located in the Luhuitou Peninsula in the southwest of Sanya and covers almost 82 hectares with the highest elevation reaching 181 meters. The park is marked by a large stone sculpture depicting a deer with its head turned around.
A romantic folktale lies behind how the park got its name and it is rumoured that couples who have a picture taken with the sculpture will be blessed. The hilltop park is noted for being an excellent place to get a bird’s eye view of the sea and downtown Sanya, as well as to savour the sun rising and setting over the city.
