When I need to clear my head, I often drive out to Shek O to clear my head. It's nice and quiet. The best part is there's always ample of free parking spaces on weekdays. Shek O is one of those places I normally avoid on the weekend. Spend a day under the sun and just chill. If you prefer... More

It is a very nice beach with wonderful boulders on each side. The landscape around is pleasant. It's a very nice place to get rest after the Drangon's back hike. Moreover, most of the best beaches are on the mainland side, this one is not far from the center, roughly 20mn by cab. When it's peak hours, be careful it's... More

If you plan to visit during week days, you might have a some fun there assuming you don't smoke. Smoking is forbidden in Hong Kong on beaches and in public parks which is quite outrageous coming from one of the most polluted city in the world... however, you can bring as much alcohol as you like. If you plan to... More

It's a nice spot to have a BBQ next to the beach. Bring your own stuff or buy it next to the beach. The atmophere is perfect! Surfers ride on the waves, you can BBQ and enjoy the rural part of Hong Kong!

There's a BBQ area on the left side of the beach, populr with students. A great place to look at the amazing rocks which is to the left of the... More

Island line to Shau Kei Wan Take bus 9 to the last stop. On my trip it started to rain as we got near so the views were not as good. Bought umbrellas from the first vendor and we strolled around, walked the beach. There are places on the beach that have little tables with chairs around a bbq grill,... More

The beach is fine, but the water was not that good. There was a lot of garbage floating around. The drive up to the beach is great and you totally forget that you are close to one of the most populous cities in the world.

Go there on a sunny day, have a cheap beer at the beach and some affordable food. Relaxing Hong Kong style!

Shek O has the only known mini-golf course in HK, but don't be fooled: it's not worth the trip. Instead go for the beach and the quaint little homes in the area which make the village a delightful stroll
