Nice spot HK getaway. A bit far but worth the trip. A petty they took the barbecue. Can be a bit crowded on weekends or public holidays. Nice relaxed atmosphere and with good restaurant options around.

Shek O is the perfect example of what amazes me about Hong Kong! You would never know you're just a couple of miles away from the concrete jungle that is Hong Kong island. This is definitely a touristy area (if you're looking for more essential...More

It’s far, relatively small and the water isn’t always clean. But we love it here. There are minibuses and buses but we usually cab. The beach itself is clean and soft, for Hong Kong. We usually hire an umbrella (around Hk$60, but you can try...More

My favourite Hong Kong Island beach. Shek O is nestled between two small hills and looks out on several islands. The beach itself is 200-300 meter long. Generally the water quality is decent unless you come after a major storm. Transport is fairly convenient with...More

I found it easy to get to on public transport. Yes it was out the way from where I was, but various ways to get there. I took an uber there and the bus back. The beach was stunning. Big crashing waves, clean golden sand...More

Hopefully the day will be clear so you have enhanced views. Lots of walking trails and some lead you down to the beaches. Can spend the whole day walking and exploring. Pack lots of drink if it's hot as there aren't places to purchase water.

This is not a must-see when coming to HK. However, if you spare a day trip, you should consider this place. It is one of the many beautiful beaches in HK. However, it is not easy to reach here. Your best options are driving or...More

Shek O is a lovely village easily accessible from downtown Hong Kong and Kowloon. There's a pleasant stroll over to the island/peninsula and best of all there's a wonderful beach. The beach is safe and very clean. There's five or six lifeguard towers. There's also...More
