The Yoho Beach Resort is one of the few resorts in the Kenting area with direct beachfront accesses, located right next to the Wanlitong Beach (萬里桐海灘）. It is possible to access the beach from other entry points, however, the easiest way to find it is to simply walk through the resort grounds. The beach is not large, and because it is in a tucked away location, the traffic it gets is mostly from people staying at the resort.
The beach is not particularly soft as it consists mostly of small bits of coral the size of gravel -- there are, however a few small sandy patches right next to the water's edge.
The waters off the shore at Wanlitong Beach are very shallow for about 50 meters. For this portion, underneath the surface is mostly sharp volcanic rock, so if you are trying to get to a swimmable depth, you will find you have some rough trudging ahead of you (see below for alternative suggestions).
- Things to do -
The beach is located next to the Yoho Resort, which has shops, swimming pools, a spa, cafe, places to eat and so on -- all at a price of course. The beach itself does not offer very much by way of things to do besides taking in the scenery, reading a book or snapping a few photos. One other possibility is snorkeling, but it is not advisable as its quite difficult to get through the shallow-water "labyrinth" between the shore and the deeper waters. Once you get there, the snorkeling is quite nice, however. But, there is another place just a short (5 minute) walk down the road called the "Wanlitong diving area" (萬里桐潛水區) which is much more accessible for snorkeling purposes.
