Cheung Sha beach on Lantau island is not the easiest to reach, as it is in part of Lantau for which you need a special permit to access by private car. So you either have find someone who has such a permit or take a 20 minute bus ride from Tung Chung MTR . Once there, you will find that is probably the prettiest and best beach in all of Hong Kong: clean sand, (relatively) clear water, good and clean shower and WC facilities, several coffee shops and restaurants with terraces. We spent a couple of hours there on a sunny and warm January day, and the place was almost empty. We took a long stroll along the beach and had lunch in a local restaurant - it was all very nice and relaxing.

...that I have so far visited. It may not be the simplest to reach from the city but it certainly is worth it! Clean soft sand; clear cool water; plenty of places to eat, drink and relax. It has it all!

Of course all beaches are for relaxing and to be layback in, but Cheung Sha is just one of the best to do that. Maybe because the space is more opened; the layback vibes from the outdoor restaurants on the edge of the beach where people enjoy beer, wine, food and the company of each other or maybe because it simply is just away from the city. Today we have a few local oxen as our company while we laid out on the beach. We brought our tent, we didn’t have swimming costumes, just lie there relaxing after a nice lunch at the French cafe at the corner of the beach (a new addition). Enjoying the simplicity of being in the sun, doing nothing.

20 minutes drive from the bridge this lovely little beach offers a great opportunity just to chill and relax. Very quiet and we were literally the only ones on it. Quite shallow and with shark nets it’s safe for a swim. Couple of small restaurants too although weren’t open when we got there.

This is a hidden gem in Hong Kong, away from the tourists, with just a couple of little restaurants. It is so beautiful here. Really peaceful. No-one knows about it and it's always chilled. Definitely try and find it if you visit Hong Kong - and keep an eye out for the cows ;)
