I'm confused by the conflicting comments on Sanya's weather in August. I am looking to go there for a 2 week beach holiday at the beginning of the month. Whilst I can tolerate some heavy showers, I would be disappointed if these lasted all day with no sunshine (kids wanting to play in the sand etc.)
I have contacted a couple of the top hotels, which tell me not to worry about it and that August is still sunny. Yet, when I search the topic on the internet and speak to UK based travel agents, they all advise against going in August due to the rainfall.
Does anyone have any first hand knowledge of the position? Naturally, the weather from one year to the next changes, but some guidance of what to expect would be greatly appreciated.
