It's not the prettiest island in the world but for HK$12 on the ferry, it's perfect for a trip to escape the busy city. The walks are great, the street food is delicious and there's a nice vibe to the place. The ferries leave half hourly from Central Pier 5.

We took the ferry to this lovely island for my 50th birthday, whilst touring Hong Kong. The place is a traditional fishing port, with some cafes on the sea front. No cars are on the island, but lots of bikes. We found the lovely beach, which only had a few locals on it, so we paddled and sunbathed for a... More

The bakery just to the left of the ferry exit was great for the little moon pies at $2 HK each. The crowds were large and it was a very hot day so we stroll along taking in the views and going into air conditioned shops for some relief. Not much english spoken on the island but it was not... More

It takes just under an hour.Once on the island itself there are plenty of walks along with cafes and restaurants. It is a fishing port,... More

An island that seems a break destination for thais and filipinos from Hong Kong , its grimy and busy. We walked to the beach where the olympic windsurfer Lee Lai-Shan 1996 medal winner trained,the windsurfing school looked closed and overgrown and rather dilapidated. Even though the guide books say it is run by her parents. Just by there, is a... More

To reach Cheung Chau you must take either a ferry from the China Ferry Pier or the Inter Island ferry and there are fast or normal ferries available depending on your preference and budget. The ride over is enjoyable riding the waves and watching the skyscrapers, boats and islands pass by. Once on the island there are ranging activties to... More

Walking through the town reminds me of old Hong Kong about 20 years ago. Small mom & pop shops, nice restaurants, beach is nice, one day will visit when the weather is not so hot in September
