Haiyue Plaza, with the literal meaning of "Sea Moon Square", is located next to the beach along Sanya Bay, one of Sanya city's major bays.
The name of "Haiyue (sea moon)" was derived from a famous poem by ancient Chinese poet Zhang Jiuling. "Luminous, the moon bursts out of the sea; linking far apart lovers, blessing you and me.," two lines in the poem reads.

The square provides a unique vision with the South China Sea on one side, and coconut trees and city buildings on the other. It's a favorite place of the local people to do morning and evening exercises.

Haiyue Guangchang will be the mid point of the torch relay route in Sanya.
