Nice and quiet

Good place to get away from over-crowded Hong Kong. Nice beach to swim. Make sure the life-guard is there.

Highly recommended trip with the benefit of getting a different perspective on this amazing harbour. The seafood meal options are a little daunting but when we finally settled on a restaurant, the meal was great. Nice to walk around the island without having to worry about cars.

Very easy to get to from Central Pier 5, it's a quick ferry ride either by slow or fast ferry. No cars on the island, but you can walk around or hire a bicycle. Easy walk for the most part, although some steeper areas as well for better views on the hills. Huge range of seafood cafes to choose from... More

Stayed here for 5 nights in December. Even at this time of the year it was a perfect 20 degrees Celsius. There are many nice family friendly walks on the island, including a walk to a cave where a pirate hid his treasure. You can enter the cave and crawl out th other side, but be sure to bring a...

The wishing tree is artificial for now as the natural tree is not doing fine. It looks like almost dead but I could still see green leaves. Hope the natural tree survives and you could throw your hand written wishes up the tree. I threw my wishes on the artificial tree but not very happy about it. On my third... More

Cheung Chau Island is another must see places in Hong Kong. One can rent a bicycle and ride around the island and afterward, have a hearty meal for a very reasonable cost. Great place to visit.

Not posh, simple (including seafood). But comfortable - toilets in the market building - it is more difficult to find a restroom in some European countries. Stone carvings from Bronze age! Excellent beaches. Next time Imay rent a room in a local hotel because it is a very easy trip to/from Hong Kong.

A very pleasant ferry ride from downtown Hong Kong. But what one sees first is a street filled with the usual touristy shops selling food, trinkets and souvenirs.

Cheung Chau Island. How would I describe it? I think I would sum it up as unpretentious old world charm. I visited a week ago in January on a chilly day. I must say I enjoyed myself. There is an actual community living on the island. The temples, buildings etc are not built to attract tourists. They belong to the... More

Cheang chau island is accessible from pier 5 hong Kong central, there are two option a fast ferry which takes around 30mins and standard ferry which is about 1hr. There are tons of restaurant around the pier and the beach is also around the corner, it's very hilly so be ready for extreme climbing to get around the island. There... More
