I'm relatively new to hiking/walking but this one was by far the best I've done so far - an easy walk with incredible views and some superb vantage points. I went at sunset which was stunning. If you do go at this time, go prepared with a torch (unlike me!) as the sun goes down quickly and it's much harder... More

Along big wave bay, nice view from the beginning to the end. The trail is no difficult, good place for family hanging, even babies and pets.

We missed the start point at the To Tai Wan turnoff and ended up in Sheko on the bus. Not to be defeated we walked back to Big Wave Bay and did the walk in the other direction which I think may be a little easier. There is a steep climb up steps to begin and then you are on... More

It's got everything right: gorgeous view over the stretch of islands, surfing beach, well-maintained track for both mountain biking and hiking. Close to town and there's public transport to and from the starting/ending points. I had a great time here in my last morning in Hk. On the way you will bump into fellow hikers - majority is local who's... More

This is the quintessential Hong Kong hike. Everytime I have a friend in town I take them on this hike. It's the best way to see gorgeous views of Big Wave bay and Shek O, and then you end up at the beach! Do it!

If you have the impression that Hong Kong is all skyscrapers, overcrowded streets and air pollution, this walk in Shek O Country Park will definitely change your perception. Alongside the many other green spaces in the city, this offers dramatic landscapes, amazing views, fresh air and peaceful escapism – in fact, there was rarely another person in sight in the... More

I am not a regular hiker and this term was particularly challenging but reaching the top was well worth it with amazing views of different sides of HK. It's a refreshing change to the hustle and bustle of the city.

I think I was the only one stupid enough to make this track during typhoon. But the feeling is good. Btw is there any one who made this cross country by bike? Don't make my mistake, choose good weather and your hike will be georgeos. I think it's no. 2 must see and go of Hong Kong. Especially for outdoor... More

Great view of the countryside, south China sea, and skyline from the trail. Be sure to take plenty of water, the majority of the hike is in the sun.
