It's a nice spot to have a BBQ next to the beach. Bring your own stuff or buy it next to the beach. The atmophere is perfect! Surfers ride on the waves, you can BBQ and enjoy the rural part of Hong Kong!

You go there by bus or by minibus. Many local eateries when you get there and the beach is in front of you. Good n clean changing and washing facilities. There's a BBQ area on the left side of the beach, populr with students. A great place to look at the amazing rocks which is to the left of the beach, 15 minutes stroll. Must bring your camera. Many Caucasians and older generations live in Shek O, many local characters are kept. Good place.

Island line to Shau Kei Wan Take bus 9 to the last stop. On my trip it started to rain as we got near so the views were not as good. Bought umbrellas from the first vendor and we strolled around, walked the beach. There are places on the beach that have little tables with chairs around a bbq grill, they rent for 200 hkd for 4 hrs, they supply the charcoal and sell marinated meats for u to grill. The beach was clean, not to many people on it. We ate at a little place on a semi alley, the village is very small so not to many choices. After the intensity of the crowds and bustle of Hong Kong it was a welcome treat.
Get a seat in front on the top deck of the bus if you can.

The beach is fine, but the water was not that good. There was a lot of garbage floating around. The drive up to the beach is great and you totally forget that you are close to one of the most populous cities in the world.

Go there on a sunny day, have a cheap beer at the beach and some affordable food. Relaxing Hong Kong style!
