We took a taxi to travel here from the Venetian Hotel and was left a little bit disappointed. Don't go there if you want to see something. It is really a village. You will be able to see Mainland China on the library side of the village.

I think this seaside village would be the only main reason for my next visit to Macau in the future. Try to reach Coloane in early morning, before 8 am and you'll know why I have such a thought. Dont forget to pick your just baked pastry at "Lord Stow", hey its not just their egg tart! Their croissant alike... More

the only area with minimal high rises compared to the rest of Macau, Hac Sa beach has very black sand and not particularly clean although people do swim there and there is a life guard during swimming season. recently renovated walkway along the beach is nice. Cheoc van beach is quiter and a bit cleaner, also patrolled during swimming season... More

Coloane Village is a must see. The pace of life is much more relaxed than the garish Cotai Strip and there are many hidden gems such as the St. Francis Xavier Church which houses significant relics of the great missionary, now a Catholic Saint ! The plazas are charming nad low key; the Macanese restaurants authentic. Enjoy an afternoon at... More

This is worth taking the local bus number 25, have a walk around the village and enjoy it's charm. Ensure you stop at the bakery to buy egg tart from Lord Stow bakery, they also make a nice salad, and across the road you can relax with your snacks and watch the water and the fishing boats.

This is the Macao one should come for, laid-back, charming and full of histories (and good food!) Come here on weekdays if you could, it's oh so much better than the weekend which is madness everywhere. Marvel at the St Francis chapel, have a legendary egg tart at Lord Stow's bakery, wander around and feel the old charm of Macao... More

Coloane Village has retained its charm despite development on Taipa and the mainland. The beaches are still relaxing and it is lovely to get away from all the crowds at the casinos and downtown. Well worth the trip for Lord Stow's egg tarts and Fernando's alone!

If you want a rest from the noise and lights from the city and the casinos, take a bus to Coloane. The fishermen's village is adorable, has great places to eat, amazing view, Portuguese remains of architecture with Macanese new houses, beaches and BBQ :)

Went there on a rainy day and there are several buses that you can take to there. As I was travelling from Senado Square to Coloane Village, there were 2 buses like 21A/26A that you could take. These 2 buses go to a lot of places like Taipa Village also. Went to try the eggs tarts at Lord Stow's, and... More

I was hoping to have a scooter to explore Coloane Village and the surrounds but it was pouring - so I cabbed it. It's nothing like anything in Old Macau or Taipa. It's a fishing village that takes about 20 minutes to walk. There's interesting views of the Chinese Mainland. There's a couple of small temples that are worth a... More
