June 24 02:35 2022

At 18° north latitude, Hainan, China, has bright, tropical sunshine and long, sandy coasts. Thousands of colorful sails adorn the line that connects the sea and sky. As for the Hainan island trip, water sports are a must! Dance on the waves, gallop along the surface of the sea, give in to the need for speed, and make the most of the time on the island.

The Department of Tourism, Culture, Radio, Television, and Sports of Hainan Province recently launched the “One date with spring” activities. The Exploration of Hainan takes people on a journey through this water sports paradise this summer and gets people to know Hainan in a different way!

1: Swimming

As an aerobic exercise that has excellent effects on the whole body, swimming is also a basic skill that must be mastered before beginning many water sports. Swimming can give people a more graceful, streamlined shape, and 20 minutes of exercise in the water is equivalent to 1 hour of exercise on land. Learning to swim well can also avoid injury while enjoying other sports.

Whether it is in the ocean or in an infinity pool looking over the sea, swimming in the clear, cool waters of Hainan is a delight. Dive right in and surround the body with the healing, turquoise waters of the tropics.
