On June 18th, the 6th Hainan Ocean Sports Season 2022 commenced with much fanfare at the Haikou National Sailing Base's public dock.

The theme of this year's Hainan Ocean Sports Season is "Hainan: An Ocean Sports Paradise". The season is broken down by month into four thematic sections: "Water Carnival" in June, "Lucid Waters and Lush Mountains" in July, "Vibrant Coast" in August, and "Sail Through the Waves" in September.


Compared with previous years, the activities of this year's event are richer in content and more diverse, with a total of 44 key ocean sports such as surfing, paddle boarding, swimming, sailing, dragon boating, kayaking, sea fishing, and motor boating. The activities, covering 18 cities and counties on the island, are expected to provide Hainan with strong momentum to develop an internationally-renowned water sports paradise.

Hainan Ocean Sports Season is a key sports tourism-branded event created by Hainan Province. Over the past 5 years, it has continuously promoted the in-depth integration of "sports and tourism" and "sports and education", becoming a poster-child for the Hainan FTP (Free Trade Port) to the outside world. The event also serves as a window and a platform for this tropical island's local customs.

To date, Hainan Ocean Sports Season has achieved a total output benefit of nearly RMB 400 million, covering more than 30 million people. It is a sports tourism event that both locals and tourists look forward to.
