Happy New Year Everyone!
It’s been half a year since I’ve updated this blog, and since then I’ve moved to a new site. However, I did return to Hong Kong for a project from August to November, and took some visitors on a beach hike that I thought I’d share with you: Pak Tam Au to Sai Wan Beach in Sai Kung.
You can actually choose which beach to end up on: (from north to south) Tung Wan, Tai Long Wan (both empty but ruggedly beautiful and seasonally has surf swell, you have to rent boards and get amenities at the two southerly beaches), Ham Tin, and Sai Wan.
We chose to end in Sai Wan because there was a boat that would take us back to Sai Kung Pier from there. Usually the last boat departs between 5 to 6pm – it really depends on the day and weather.
How to get to the starting point, Pak Tam Au:
- From the Sai Kung Pier Public Minibus Terminus, take the number 7 towards Hoi Ha
- You can also find catch bus 94 from Sai Kung town towards Wong Shek Pier
To get to Sai Kung, we split a taxi between from Tsim Sha Tsui but you can also take the MTR to Hang Hau station and switch to the minibus to Sai Kung from the terminal there.
Hope you enjoy the little day trip as much as we did!
