Came to Cheung Chau with low expectations due to not so great experiences with other HK islands but was quite surprised to enjoy the experience. It's a very relaxed atmosphere, plenty of shops and other things to see. The beach was quite small and dirty when we went but then again, there aren't that many beaches around in HK. Definitely...

I visited Cheung Chau Island for the first time at the weekend and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. We took the ferry from Central Pier No.5 which took around 50 mins. After walking through the small town centre we made our way to Cheung Chau beach and took the scenic walk via Kwun Yam Wan beach all the way around the... More

Except the beach and hill hiking, you may enjoy the BBQ as well here. Food and skewers can be brought at street market, drinks from supermarket. Then you just pick out a place to start, wherever along the sea or on the small hill. If you don't like DIY, BBQ shops are very easy to find along the coast.

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

Great place to go for a walk around the island have a swim on the back beach then come to seafood restaurants out front and tuck onto some good fresh fish at a reasonable price. Good to get away from central .

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

If you want to get away from busy Hong Kong for a day then Cheung Chau island is the place to visit. Advise taking the slow relaxing ferry trip from pier on Hong Kong island. 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
