SAI KUNG

Although Sai Kung is Hong Kong’s second largest district by area, vast swathes of it remain uninhabited and the area is known for its stunning natural beauty, pristine beaches and a slow-paced village lifestyle. It is made up of the Clear Water Bay Peninsula and the southern part of the Sai Kung Peninsula in the New Territories, comprising of Sai Kung town and its surrounding rural areas, the most densely populated area of Tseung Kwan O New Town, and more than 70 islands. Known as the “back garden of Hong Kong”, Sai Kung is home to the Hong Kong Global Geopark, which itself is home to Sharp Island, High Island and a whole load of unnatural looking hexagonal volcanic columnar rocks, among other natural attractions. Sai Kung town is also popular for its good selection of local seafood restaurants, decent Western pubs and eateries, and the famous Honeymoon Desserts cafe. Those who live outside Sai Kung tend to come here for outdoor activities, be it hiking the challenging Sharp Peak or camping and surfing at Tai Long Wan beach within Sai Kung East Country Park. The old perserved villages of Yung Shue O, Pak Sha O and Lai Chi Chong are also worth a peek.
