Trio Beach is worth the visit.
May 2021 • Family
Trio Beach, near Sai Kung. Great little beach spot. Walkable or by ferry from the Pier Hotel wharf. Highly recommend beach. Walkable (about 45 mins from the Lions Geopark Site or a bit shorter if walking the trail from Hong Kong Marina. Alternatively, dodge all walking and catch the sampan ferry shuttle ($20 HKD weekdays rate return) from the wharf beside the Pier Hotel. Boat drops you off right beside the changing rooms, only a 7minute ride on the boat which chugs back and forth pretty much constantly. The beach is nice white sand, some rocks at one end for kids to play around and hunt sprats and small fish. Great changing and shower facilities. Kiosk on top doing ice creams, umbrellas ($100 hire per brolly) and floaty things. Two pontoons and a shark net in place for safe swimming. Recommended day trip beach.

Exploring Beyond the Main Tourist Sites
Mar 2021
For those who enjoy hiking and exploring more remote and wilder natural areas, Sai Kung is a special area. If you only have a couple of days in Hong Kong, then it’s a bit off the beaten track but if you have longer, then there’s a lot to explore and you get to see a different side to Hong Kong.
The MacLehose Hiking Trail is one of the best and perhaps the most scenic stretch (Section 2), runs through the Sai Kung East Country Park. One of the best things to do in Sai King is to catch a boat or kaito from the public ferry piers to the outlying Sharp Island and Hap Mun Bay or over to Tai Long Wan Bay. The 30 min boat trip to Tai Long Wan is a rip-roaring ride across open ocean, past dramatic caves and 140 million year old volcanic rock cliffs.
The Sai Kung waterfront is lined with local seafood restaurants and collections of fish tanks with live fish, lobsters and shellfish. On weekends, the harbour is busy with speedboats, sampans, fishing boats and wooden junks. One of the most interesting sights is the floating seafood market by the piers.
Getting to Sai Kung, from Central will take a long time by public transport and will involve a combination of MTR and buses. Taxi or uber will cost about $200+ one way.

Be careful

The pathways and trails were marked. They did not bother remarking again. You ask sour and rude locals the way. The paths are a hazard to your limb!

A million miles from Central

I feel like I’ve found Sai Kung quite late into my HK experience (even though no plans to go anywhere else just yet), but better late than never. The views, oh the views! Best to get up and across there early, then enjoy the whole day at one of the remote beaches. The experience is richer for getting no reception out at the far spots; however, would recommend organizing your ticket for the boat back nice & early if there’s a few ppl on the beach. There’s a lovely wee bar at the pier on the way back too, where you can chill out and have a few sundowners! Great stuff.

Whether you're going for a barbecue on the beach or to hike Sharp Peak, Sai Kung has everything you want. Definitely worth exploring the town centre as well.

Sai kung is one of the best place for relaxing
Aug 2020
Although Sai Kung is far away from the city, many people decide to go into sai kung in holiday. I think that sai Kung have a good view for watching the sun disappear to the horizon which is very romantic and relaxing. Moreover, there are many restaurants, which are beside the ocean so you can have your dinner with the sae view , in sai kung.

My favourite place in Hong Kong
Feb 2020
I live downtown, but this is my favourite place to come and get away from the bustle. Nice beach and more chilled out. Great range of restaurants. The Sunday market is particularly good to visit.

Visit saikung so often in my previous stay. The reason I love this place, it can easily access by bus from choi hung (MTR Station ) or a bus from Hang Hau. also by Taxy, when I go with group. its a laid back area, which contain beach front, water front PIER with boats that you can take to go across the little beach nearby, shops,bank, cafes, restaurants and a number of children playground, basketball field, public swimming pool, post office, library, and many more. there are also clean public toilets around the area, and a number of outdoor seating. the local also takes their dog to walk here, at the the waterfront.
