It really does not feel like HK. Quiet island with good seafood and a tranquil atmosphere. Famous for its big fishballs although I didnt find them that special

Take the ferry from central to Cheunh Chau and enjoy your day. We arrived mid morning and walked around the whole Island from the mini great wall of China to various temples. Great views form the top of the island and you see rocks called the elephant and human face and others. We had a great seafood meal and the price was unbelievably cheap. 293HKD for prawns, scallops, mixed veg, noodles and large beer. Cannot say how much we enjoyed our day but our poor feet are killing us.

We took the slow ferry from Central, pier 5, which leaves every 30 min. and takes about one hour. We had booked the more expensive fair (about HK $ 20), upper deck and it was well worth it. We got a bench outside and the ride was a great joy. Coming back we took the speed ferry which takes about half an hour but it is really just more or less a means of transport. The cabin was very cold.
The island itself offers some walks, if you walk beyond the seafood restaurants and souvenir stores you will some signs, follow the one to Puk Tai Temple and will find a map of the island with suggested routes and a clean public WC. Check out the temple, esp. look up onto the roof :-) We took the first route and encountered a fair number of feral dogs (no problem, they seem to not get to close to people).
There are bike rental places and bike rickshaws. We went in May and there were some sort of flies, never saw them, but they bit my ankles badly, bring insect repellent.
We had food at one of those restaurant which was good and we greatly enjoyed watching all that was going on there. Very relaxing.

I have been to this island about 4 times and have enjoyed it each time. It is a step back in time from the hussle and bustle of Hong Kong. It takes about 1 hour I think to get there from Central Piers. There are no cars on the island, everyone rides bikes except for small construction vehicles and emergency services. The older riders have trainer wheels on their bikes.

Id recommend when you get off the ferry to walk through the island to the other side where there is a beach. Have a look around and come back to the town centre and walk around having a good look to see how the locals live. Then follow the walkway which runs to the left of where you get of the ferry and you will find heaps of restuarants with great food at tiny prices.

Its a great place to get away for a few hours.

take the ferry from central to get to this little gem. just wander around, enjoy the view, or bring your swimsuit and stay at the beach. you could even spend the night at the warwick hotel (be sure to have a room with seaview!)
