Cheung Chau Island, Hong Kong

4.3
#4 of 29 in Nature in Hong Kong
Nicknamed the "Dumbbell Island" because of its shape, Cheung Chau Island features six temples, long sandy beaches, sea food restaurants, a 3000-year-old rock carving, and a cave, which was allegedly the hiding place of a famous 19th-century pirate. Cycle or hike to the natural rock sculptures on the east side of the island, molded by weather into shapes resembling a flower vase and a human head. The Mini Great Wall, which is actually a long path, offers many vantage points over the sea.

  • In the middle of the boat into the road, there are fewer trails, and seafood, look at the local area, it is worth a day to travel, or a place of old and young, breathing outside the air, one day tour good place

  • It takes about 40 minutes to 1 hours from the central pier to reach the continent, divided into fast and slow boats. Long Chau Island has a variety of food choices, especially glutinous rice nuomici and big fish eggs are very famous.

  • A weekend getaway for the locals from the city to a small island without cars. It's very busy on weekends. Good for swimming and fish restaurants.
  • A great getaway place from the busiest pace of Hong Kong
  • Although popular with tourists, there are tranquil pockets on the island away from the crowds - on the northern and eastern sectors of the island. But you do want to check out the crowded streets(car-free) for superb streetfood and photo opportunities. The baked oysters on Praya St.. whoa, delish! Stuffed giant fishballs from Gam Wing Taai .. simply awesome! egg tarts, grilled squid, oh mamma!. Then do a walkabout on the waterfront. You'll see all manner of seafood restaurants. You'll never go hungry here. The temples are worth visiting.. .unique architectural gems, each and everyone of them !
  • I passed by here last year as they were preparing for the festival! There were lots of people. Took a bike stroll along the coast. Super fun! Bring mosquito repellent!
  • An ideal getaway from the traffic jam & smog of HK island. Only a 35 - 55 mins ferry ride away from Central pier. good for hiking, beach, afternoon coffee & tea etc

Where to stay in Hong Kong

Head to Tsim Sha Tsui for the main tourist section of Hong Kong, where it's easy to find reasonably priced accommodations to suit your particular requirements, with more expensive hotels closer to the water and side streets offering budget hostels. You can also consider Hong Kong Island, which offers easy links to the mainland via its ferry and train lines. Chain hotels sit in the northern section of the island, where luxury and budget options remain available.
