Luhuitou is a peninsula with water at three sides in the Sanya Bay
which is 5 kilometers away from the urban city.
Luohuitou Park is situated on the hill near the seashore, 3
kilometers away from the Sanya city in the south.
The name Luohuitou which means the deer turning its head back is
derived from a moving love story. Long time ago, a tyrant emperor
desired a pair of dear hairy deer horn, so he forced a Li ethnic
young man named Ahei to hunt for deer on the mountainous areas.
Once, when Ahei was hunting, he saw a beautiful spotted deer chased
by a panther.
He shot the panther to death with his arrow and run after the deer
for nine days and nine nights. After passing ninety-nine hills,
they arrived at the Coral Cliff of Sanya. The deer found no way to
escape except jumping into the sea while the hunter were bending
his bow and got ready to shoot. Suddenly it turned its head back
and changed into a beautiful girl walking toward him.
Then, the hunter and the girl fell in love and married. In the end,
the fairy girl collected her brothers to defeat the tyrant and
settle down on the cliff. After several generations' hard work,
they finally built the Coral Cliff into a beautiful farm. From then
on, the romantic hill has been called Luhuitou.
At present, a charming park has been built on the top of the
Luhuitou and a huge sculpture 9 meters long, 4.9 meters wide and 12
meters high was set there based on the moving legend. The city is
also nicknamed "Deer City".
The panoramic view of the vast sea, the rolling mountains and the
of Sanya city gained from the top of the hill is fantastic . Inside
the Luhuitou Park, there are winding paths, Halley's comet
observation station built on the mountain, white wave-hearing
pavilion, red Guanghai kiosk, the lover's island, and other scenic
spots like the Monkey Mountain, Deer House, Hut of Li People,
Turtle's Heaven and the Immortal Pond. What's more exciting is that
you can taste the red coconut-the treasure of Hainan coconuts.
