We took the ferry over from HK Island - about 35 min. This is a pleasant little island town and was an excellent place to spend the day. We started by walking along the harbour and into the town. There are many shops to look at and winding through the back neighborhoods was fun. They have a nice Buddhist temple in the center and a large playground where I played basketball with a few of the local kids. People we windsurfing on the beach area which did look like it could use a little cleaning up. We had an excellent lunch at one of the sidewalk restaurants. Don't stop at the first one off the ferry as they seemed to be rushing everyone. A little further down everything was calm and we got a nice table by the water, excellent food and service as well. After lunch we walked to the north end of the island. Many people rented bikes and there is an excellent paved place to ride to this area of the island. It's farther than I thought and I wished we had rented bikes, but it's not too bad unless you have mobility problems. Once you got to the end of the island, you could walk up through a section of hills to the pirate's cave. The area has an excellent walkway to use although the cave is a bit of a disappointment. My son did climb down into it, but said there was not much there. It is a pleasant walk there though and I would do it again just for the scenery. When we got back to the main road, there was a little fishing boat shuttle that would take you back to the ferry for about $5HK. Well worth it as our feet were getting tired. Excellent Day trip.
