3. Wanquan River: The Wanquan River is a scenic river that flows through Boao.

The Wanquan River has two sources: the southern branch, Lehui River, is the main stream, with a length of 109 kilometers, originating from Nanling in Linbei Village, Wuzhishan. The northern branch, Ding'an River, originates from the south of Limuling in Li and Muling. The two rivers converge at Hekou mouth in Qionghai City, where it is officially known as Wanquan River, flowing through Jiaji to Bo'ao and eventually into the South China Sea. It has a total length of 157 kilometers. The Wanquan River's banks feature typical tropical rainforest landscapes and stunning geological formations, making it a sight to behold.

At the estuary of the Wanquan River, it encompasses three rivers (Wanquan River, Jiuliu River, and Longgun River), one port (Bo'ao Port), and two islands (Dongyu Island and Yuanyang Island), offering breathtaking scenery.
