Getting there is simple via a ferry from Central, and these go every half hour or so. The main street to which you arrive is teeming with people at the weekend, so if you want some peace and quiet, turn left or right and follow your nose and the clear sign posts for the walks around the island.

While it was crowded, just walk past the center of town and venture down the road and up to the next street. Great to see so many local shops and to get a feel of how HK used to be.

Having been to HK several times, and looked at the reviews,we decided to do something different and chose Cheung Chau Island with the intention of a cycle ride. We just don't get it, did we get on the wrong ferry? First thing you see coming off the ferry is McDonalds. On the beach (with a backdrop of run down concrete... More

Easy to get to from Pier 6 with local ferry. Cheap. Scenic with fishing boats and easy walk along the beach to a nearby temple, cave and also nice empty beach. Water was a bit too cool for a swim. The center area is very busy at least on a weekend (Sat) with lot of local biking around. But once... More

Visiting this island was the highlight of our trip to hong kong. Ferry was easy to get too, fare was cheap and it took around 40minutes. It was like being back in Tuscany, with small alleyways and quaint houses. Lovely beach even though not hot enough to go for a swim. The street food vendors were plentiful. Did not like... More

The perfect place to get away from the hustle and bustle that is Hong Kong. The ferry ride to Cheung Chau is relaxing and interesting. Once on the Island there are no cars, so you have to walk around the Island to see things. There are plenty of great restaurants that are very reasonably prices that offer great dishes and... More

It was not a special weather day but we enjoyed a lot our visit to the island. Place is crowded but you can easily find peace walking around the typical surroundings. Small houses and no noise out of few barking dogs are all around with that quit facade. Nice temple and nice markets. What has to be improved is maps... More

This beautiful island is such a relaxing place to spend a day or two away from the frenetic pace of Hong Kong/Kowloon. The boat journey is breathtaking, the best way to see Hong Kong's harbour and skyline, the other islands and Cheung Chau itself. There are plenty of places to wander and temples to discover but even the least energetic... More
