The West Coast and South-West Coast of Hainan is one of the least travelled places on the island. Poor and left behind by development on other parts of Hainan, somehow it occurs to very few people to come and have a look. Which, for some, is all the more reason you should want to! Western Hainan is inhabited mainly by the Hlai (Li) minority and has its own brand of natural beauty, including some of Hainan's only remaining virgin forests. Includes Chanjiang, Dongfang, and Ledong Counties.
- Jianfeng Ridge and Forest Reserve.
- Qizi Bay.
- Bawang Nature Reserve, home of the Hainan gibbon.
