The Port for Sanya, is a new and modern setup. It sets out on Phoenix Island, which is a peninsula from the mainland. It is possible to walk to town from the Pier, but it really depends on how much walking you want to do. I took a bus into the town, which let me off further down into the shopping area. I walked quite a bit through town and eventually made it back to the Pier. If you are older and have a hard time walking far, then certainly take a bus or taxi. The weather is hot and humid on Hainan, so walking can make you work up a sweat. Keep in mind that Immigration on Hainan is pretty strict, so the rules may change as to what you can and can not do from the Pier. You should read my blog posts about Hainan, there are a few and they have photos.
