Monkey Island

Monkey Island is located on Nawan Peninsula in Linshui County, Sanya city, Hainan Province. Surrounded by the sea on three sides, it is not only the only island-based macaque nature reserve in China but also in the world. The park is home to over a thousand macaques, so earning it the nickname "Monkey Island."

To access Monkey Island, visitors have two options. You can take the sightseeing cableway directly to the park from the peninsula, or they can take a boat to the peninsula's pier and then board the park's sightseeing vehicle to reach Monkey Island Park.
