Lovely little getaway

Great little hike around the island and two sandy beaches to unwind. Restaurants are good and famous for their fish dishes.

This is a beautiful place to go to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city. I would highly recommend getting the fast boat over (all air-conditioned) or paying extra for air con on the slow boat in summer. The boat ride was VERY hot!

Cheung Chau is an outlying island off Hong Hong which has first class beaches, delicious international food especially fresh seafood. Most important it is traffic free which means no car. People travel everywhere either on foot or on bicycle. You can easily spent a few days there to swim in the sea, wind surf, walk around to explore the old... More

The beaches were practically bare, the fishing vessels bobbed in the harbor, the narrow alleyways were fun to explore, the pace of life is significantly slower than in the city. The ferry ride was nice and we recommend the slow "ordinary" ferry for sightseeing. Buy the deluxe ticket and enjoy the deck out back on the upper level with hair... More

This place is fun, prepare your self to walk alot or rent a bike, 30 min by fast boat (20 over $) or 50min by normal ordinary boat (cost u half), if time is not a problem, take normal boat as it fun... natural ventilation and u can see out better. good place, food and dessert.

This is a place for tourists who really want to know older HK - fishing village. Cheung Chau Island is one of the remained fishing island with fair amount of residential population. Still have some authentic manufacturing of salted fish, dried seafood such as dried squid /octopus for traditional Chinese cooking. Though it's not a fishing village anymore, you still... More

We started form the ferry pier, go left, and head toward the small mountain where you can do a short 45-minute hike until you reach a pavillon. From there, you have to retrace your steps. Back to the village, main beach is ok but usually overcrowded. Simply walk right until you reach other beaches. Usually way more quiet and less... More

I visited this beautiful island on a hot afternoon, so unfortunately, I did not get to explore as much as I would have liked. The locals are super nice, and of course, I had to try the amazing street food. There are many unique foods, such as deep-fried ice cream and chips-on-a-stick, and they are all delicious! Cheung Chau is... More

Cheung Chau Island was a great escape from the fast pace of Hong Kong. Really easy to get there by ferry and plenty of things to do on your arrival. We walked the island, hired biked and enjoyed really good pizzas at Fresh Basil Pizza. The views on the island are lovely and try the various walking trails. Also the... More

Cheung Chan is one of the many islands off Hong Kong. Worth a visit. A very interesting ferry trip, good views all the way across. We went from Pier 5 at Central ,HongKong island. Ferries are frequent,every 30 minutes. The voyage time is 60 minutes on the slow ferry, which is a traditional ship, or you can choose the fast... More
