Luhuitou Park

Luhuitou means the deer turning its head back, which is derived from a touching love story. Long ago, a tyrant emperor desired a pair of hairy deer horn, so he forced a young Li man named Ahei to hunt for deer on the mountainous areas. While Ahei was hunting, he saw a beautiful spotted deer chased by a panther. He shot the panther to death with his arrow, and then ran after the deer for nine days and nine nights. After passing ninety-nine hills, they arrived at the Coral Cliff of Sanya. The deer had no way to escape except to jump into the sea, and the hunter bent his bow and got ready to shoot. Suddenly, the deer turned its head back and changed into a beautiful girl, and walked toward him. The hunter and the girl fell in love and got married. In the end, the fairy girl got her brothers together to defeat the tyrant emperor and settled on the cliff. After several generations of hard work, they developed the Coral Cliff into a beautiful farm. From then on, the romantic hill has been called Luhuitou.

Luhuitou Park is situated on a hill near the seashore, about 3 kilometers from Sanya city; while the Luhuitou Hill is the main peak of Luhuitou park, with an altitude of about 280 meters. It is a great place to view the sea scenery of Hainan and overlook the Sanya city.
