Cheung Chau Island, Hong Kong

4.3
#4 of 37 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.

  • Full streams of Hong Kong take the boat to make it on this you island where there are no car but from fishing boat and bikes. A little market and we that's quiet at the end of the island. Visit the covered market and the streets of the village are immersed in another time must leave early Hong Kong but this visit worth great day weather

  • Small rustic island, very quiet and peaceful place. Lots of walk around the island, can u quite tiring. But it’s great place to spend the day
  • People from Hong Kong will only come to Cheung Chau if there is an event there or are having a local tour for tasting seafood with a walk to Cheung Po Chai Cave. Besides, it is far away from the CBS and you need to take a ferry for about 50 minutes to go there. Finally, it is better to rent a bike or you might take too long to walk to the places you want to visit.
  • Great experience walking the island and shops on a day with mixed weather
  • Scenic walks and an escape from the hustle and bustle of Hong Kong city
  • Nice for a quiet lunch and beer to escape the crowds.
