Cheung Chau Island, Hong Kong

4.3
#4 of 28 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.

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.
