If it’s sea, surf, and mountains you are after, then Hainan has it all. During this outdoor adventure series, we try diving, surfing, hiking, and even a few rounds of golf during our trip across the province.

China’s Maldives

Drone and Phone travels to Sanya for the start of a new series around Hainan Province.

Returning back to Sanya, there’s a seafood feast awaiting before hitting the city’s famous nightclubs.

Surf & Sand

In this episode, Drone and Phone walks a section of Bin Hai Lu You, a 35km stretch of wild coastline, checking the food at a small fishing village and taking to the waves on China’s best-known surf beach. Local teacher and DJ, David Hauxwell, questions DJ Clark on his DJ-ing credentials and challenges him to a surf-off.
