Good ferry ride out for a few hours to look around. Is very popular and has the potential to be a lot better. The beach area is small and there was a lot of litter around.

Took a ferry for Central Harbour (Pier 5). Took about an hour. It's a sleepy island. Do not expect much but has some good trails. Also has a good cave for all those who are adventurous.

Two ferries will take you to Cheung Chau: fast (~20min) and ordinary (~50min). The ordinary one makes it possible to stand by the open window on the lowest deck which makes the whole experience, especially at night. The fast ferry is, well, fast. Anyways, the island itself is really quiet and you can feel a good HK vibe up there.... More

No reason to discuss the ferry. Take the fast ferry to Cheung Chau Island from Central. Once you arrive, you are in a little village with its own history and style. Cheung Chau is famous for their giant fish balls and delicious seafood. There is a wonderful temple to visit as well as bikes available for rent. If you are... More

I took a fast ferry over there because the fast ferry go first. It was really fast and cooling. When I was back I missed the fast ferry so I took the ordinary ferry. Didn't know it was without aircon and it was so hot and slow. Just a few dollar different, I would recommend taking the fast ferry, save... More

Perhaps not first on the list of things to do if your time is limited. However, if you're feeling (slightly) adventurous, then get on a ferry to Cheung Chau and enjoy the many sights in a few hours. Note the slow ferry takes an hour, so perhaps better to get the faster boat if time is limited. Good walks to... More

A low key, fun trip to a little out island near Lantau. We took the fast ferry there (30 minutes) and the slow ferry back (1 hour). A really good view of the island geography of the area. Once on the island, the tiny fishing village is hectic with many many seafood restaurants jostleing for your buisness. Choose the one... More

A short ferry trip from Hong Kong island pier Cheung Chau Island is a much quieter and relaxed location then most parts tourists see in Hong Kong. Limited cars means the traffic you will more then likely hear is the ring of bells on the bicycle used by visitors and locals to get around this small island. Take some time... More

Ferry journey from pier 5 Central. About 45 minutes. Very full and had to sit separately on top deck. All 4 of us were travel sick. Top tip: less likely to get sick on lower deck. Shore line with foodstores and shops selling cheap tad. Beach unimpressive. You can either walk or hire bike to get around the island. The... More
