Wonderful view, the breezy air very fresh. Go with binoculars for unrushed views. See boats and ships.

When you ascend to the hill top, you will have a gorgeous view over Shek O, a peninsular extending to the sea. Walk further to Tai Long Wan and ascend to the hill next to the beach. Beautiful! Go further to Shek O for the evening scenes. Take bus no. 9 from Shau Kei Wan Bus Terminus and get off... More

A short train and local bus ride out of the hustle and bustle of Hong Kong city is this beautiful mountain ridge with glorious views over many uninhabited and heavily habited areas within Hong Kong. The hike is approximately 7-8km from To Tei Wan village (getting off the #9 bus before Shek O at the village) up to the great... More

Take plenty of water and wear a hat if it's a hot day. This is a wonderful walk, steep in parts but amazing views, beautiful countryside and worth it. Take towel and bathers, Big Wave Bay lived up to its name on the day we were there and there is also beach at Shek O.

Not as difficult as I had been led to believe, but still no pushover. Hard to reconcile the fact that there is a frantic busy city not that far away. Views are spectacular if you get a clearish day

I'm definitely not a hiker, but my friends who have been here before told me it wasn't too difficult. I read online that the whole thing should take around 6 hours (!) but it took us around 2.5, walking slowly and stopping a few times. The hike itself wasn't so difficult, what made it really hard was the weather. It... More

Wow! I'm glad I went here to experience this. It's located a bit outside of the main city, I took a bus. It has an amazing view over the sea and city and nearby villages. You walk a path along the top of a mountain and I advise to just stop regularly to just admire the view. It will take... More

You can take bus there at the trail head and the view was fantastic! Bring a towel if you like to cool off after the hike as the beach is clean and water is clean
