you could expect better beaches from an island. Nothing impressive. rather small. Yet, this could be part of your journey, while hiking the Dragon's back.

We visited here to hike part of "The Dragon's Back." It was a gorgeous day and a perfect alternative to the hustle and bustle of the city. The views are lovely and the air is much fresher. Make sure you have proper shoes!

We took a trip to Shek O beach on Boxing Day and although had read the reviews, were not sure what to expect. Well - there's nothing to worry about folks this cove and beach are amazing. Fine blonde sand, clear clean water, beautiful scenery - if you having been bustling round the city as we had been for a... More

We traveled to Shek O for an afternoon excursion. It was easy to get to. We took one of the MTR lines to the end and then took a ride on a double decker bus to get there. The ride on the bus itself was all part of the experience. I HIGHLY suggest riding on the upper part of the... More

Highly recommended. The beach is very beautiful, the water is clean, there are pleny of great restaurants just behind it, and the beach is well equipped with showers, changing rooms, barbecue areas and is very nicely accessible by public transport. Much recommended.

This is a beautiful beach especially in the off-season. You can rent chairs and umbrellas from people at the beach - be willing to bargain. This place can be crowded in the summer though!

You wouldn't expect a quaint little village with an excellent beach in a place like HK... but here it is!! Well worth the trek.
