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.

  • To eat peace manju, were riding Island ship from Central. 1 time. Dancing to great fanfare from the port arrived on the eve of the Bun Festival in parade. Done-I'm happy. It was 33 degrees hot but pleasant. Small island. Streets and alleys that is the Mall? Various 物売. Next to go have a swimsuit. I was swimming through. Every 30 minutes to the boat, and is useful. Octopus can be used.

  • This is one of the better activities to do in HK. The ferry ride out gives you great views of the city and surrounds from the outdoor deck. Once you arrive on the island there are quite a few restaurants clustered around the waterfront. Walking around the island through the back streets passing temples and rocky beaches was really enjoyable. Definitely need water and a hat if you go for a long walk on a hot day as there weren't many shops up the top. Great views.
  • 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
