Luhuitou is a peninsula with water on three sides. It sits in Sanya Bay, which is five kilometers from the city.


Luohuitou Park is situated on a hill near the seashore, three kilometers away from Sanya city in the south.


The name Luohuitou, which means "the deer turning its head back", 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.
