Tung Wan Beach
Tung Wan Beach has a beautiful stretch of golden sand that reach out to the blue waters of the wide, east-facing bay. It is generally safe to swim here, and you will find lots of amenities such as changing rooms, showers, and children’s playground. This is a town beach and the area bhind is quite built up. From here there are sweeping views of the ocean and Aberdeen and Lamma Island.
If you are looking for shade during the day, there are a few trees at the back of the beach beyond which is a promenade. There are rocky formations at either end of the beach, so it is worth taking a walk. If you want to stay on Cheung Chau for a few days, you will find plenty of things to do, including several hiking trails near the beach.
There is a path along Tung Wan Beach that leads you up to an ancient rock carving and the smaller neighboring beach where windsurfing is popular. You can also continue hiking to see wonderful views over Cheung Chau island. Once you walk down from the lookout pavilion, you will find a footpath with marble guardrails, which is rather grandly known as the Mini Great Wall.
You can also explore other rock formations and take in views of Lamma Island as you continue on. If you are up for it, the hike is well worth the time and effort.
