10 favourite places in Hong Kong

So many people know, I’m a avid outdoor enthusiast and there are many places in Hong Kong where one can enjoy the lovely countryside. So, here are some of my favourite place that I enjoy very much.

1. Double Deer Stream – Sai Kung 西貢 雙鹿石澗

What I like about it:  Nice volcanic rock geography and beautiful scenery, awesome and challenging river to navigate, nice scrambling along the way. (Yes, I’m doing this again soon)

2. Po Pin Chau – Sai Kung 西貢 破邊洲

What I like about it: My first every coasteering – very different to normal hike. Lots of swim to cross the bays – also a nearly 1 km open water swim. I love the massive sea caves at bay.

  

3. Sai Wan Beach – Sai Kung 西貢 西灣

What I like about it: One of the most beautiful beaches in Hong Kong (near the Double Deer Stream). There is a campsite on the beach and snorkelling is great.

4. Lotus Stream – Tai Lam Country Park 大欖 蓮花石澗

What I like about it: Chillex stream trek. Lots of waterfalls and rock pools. It has an exotic appeal to it

5.  Lobster Bay – Clear Water Bay 清水灣 龍蝦灣

What I like about it: It has an exotic feeling about the place (somehow it looks like Thailand). The water is so clear that you can see the fish and jellyfish in the sea. I also love the sea cave where you can play with the wave.

6. Sharp Peak – Sai Kung 西貢 蚺蛇尖

What I like about it: Beautiful beaches along the way, challenging climb to the top of the mountain and of course the Sharp Peak dog (a village dog) who love to tag along and climb up to the Sharp Peak with the hikers. I like the fact that he asked for biscuits for treats once we got to the top.

7. Lantau Peak – Lantau Island 大嶼山 鳳凰山

What I like about it: Can be a challenging hike if you do this as a night hike (via a normal route), or if you do it in the day via the bushwhack / scrambling route. If the weather is nice, you can see the famous Big Buddha at the bottom of the mountain.

8. Ma On Shan 馬鞍山

What I like about it: Beautiful mountain overlooking at Sai Kung. The hike to the top can be challenging and involved hardcore scrambling through the bush.

9.  The Infinity Pool – Lantau Island 大嶼山 天池

What I like about it: A chilled out stream trek with bouldering along the way. I love the Infinity Pool at the top where you can relax and chill out by a waterfall. We had picnic in the Infinity Pool too.

10. Wang Chung Stream – Tai Po 大埔 橫涌石澗

What I like about it: It was a relaxing hike with a lot of deep lakes where you can dive into the lake.
