Qizi Bay (Qizi Wan) has a wonderfully mild climate all year round that makes it an ideal bathing resort along the western coast of Hainan. The S-shaped bay extends for 20 km from east to west.
There are many oddly shaped stones and reefs scattered along the shores. There are many craggy rocks protruding from the sea water. The local legend of the bay's origin is as follows: long, long ago, two immortals came down from the heavens and played a game of chess (Chinese chess, of course). They were so engaged in their game that they forgot to have lunch. The local villagers, after seeing this, brought out delicious foods to offer them. After they finished the game and the food, they attempted to thank the villagers in person, but the villagers were nowhere to be found. To show their gratitude, they threw all their chess pieces into the sea, which turned into reefs and stones thereby forever sheltering the village from winds and waves of the sea. Ever since then, the village has prospered and become a tourist spot, famous for its scenic charm.
