Haikou is a large city facing Mainland China. The beaches are indescribably filthy, with plastic & other jetsam thick on the sand. There is no surf.

OTH Sanya faces out into the South China Sea and the sea is relatively clean. There are a huge range of hotels of all chains & prices. Yalong Bay has better sand & more upmarket hotels but closer to Sanya city there are more shopping & eating choices.

For a Swedish, in my eyes, you can select Sanya for scenery travel, and cultural tour should be done in Haikou.In Sanya, you can visit Yalong Bay and Sanya Bay, all beautiful, and attractive, but quite a bit expensive. In Haikou, you can visit crator park, mangrove reserve zone, eco village, etc.
