As you may already know, this week is my last week of Hong Kong. As I say goodbye, I am continue my second installment of #GoodbyeHongKong series. A few years ago I was introduced to an adventure sports called coasteering by some good friends of mine and I have had a lot of adventure since then.
A couple of weekends ago, I had my last coasteering trip with my friends at my favourite island of Sharp Island. I have hiked, snorkelled, scuba dived, kayaked to the island, but had never done a coasteering trip to the island. Every time I visit that island, it has always been a surprise.
On that cloudy Saturday morning, we attempted to explore some sea caves at the south side of the island. Hayley and I have seen those caves on our previous kayaking trip, but never manage to go into them and see them up close. I was very excited to have that opportunity to check out those awesome places of Hong Kong.
Exploring the rocky coast and the caves
From Sai Kung town centre, we took a small boat over to Sharp Island. We were dropped near Hap Moon Bay Beach, for which we all hiked and bouldered our way to the south of the island where the sea caves were. Surprisingly, the water was much calmer than what we had anticipated based on the forecast made by the observatory. (Yes, we don’t trust the forecast fully…)
We made it
After some nice exploring along the cliffs of the island, we made it to the first cave. How exciting. We climbed down the rock face and made our way to the sea level, where we first swam and then waded through some random sea weeds before reaching to the first cave. Only if I had some rice and caught a fish, then maybe I could have made some sushi out of them – in Bear Gryll style of course.
The second cave
After the first cave, we had to swim across to the cliff on the other side and made away further south of the island. We had some more awesome climbs before reaching the second big cave.
See you my friends, you guys have been very awesome. I’ll be back and visit you guys.
