Ham Tin Wan Beach

Ham Tin Wan Beach - Hong Kong
© Colin Tsoi

Ham Tin Wan Beach is located on Tai Long Wan Bay within the Sai Kung Country Park. Set among this mountainous and green terrain the beach here is a virtually pristine stertch of powdery sand and clear blue water. Definitely not the kind of scenery most people would associate with Hong Kong.

The wide golden beach here is well enough off the beaten track to not crowded. It really is a beautiful spot and as well as being somwhere to relax and take in the surrounds it is also a good spot for surfing.

To the north the beach is bordered by a small river. If you wish to cross there is a small rickety bridge that is quite famous in these parts.

Much of the adventure of visiting Ham Tin Wan Beach is getting here. First you will need to travel to Sai Kung Town from where you can take a bus to this beach - the last stop is your destination. However, once you arrive, it is a 45-minute hike through beautiful trees over the hills to Sai Wan Village. This spot has a wonderful sandy beach and water activities but you need to continue on to reach neighbouring Ham Tin Wan.

Following the path along the back of Sai Wan Beach and you will start to see the beach below. It is well worth the effort as you will see the beach nestled in a bay with clean waters where you can swim and fine sand. It is incredibly beautiful and remote but there is a small place where you can get a drink and some food; then you can relax on this incredible beach.

When you leave the beach, leave plenty of time for the hike. It does have a few uphill climbs in the hills but there is plenty of shade so you can rest along the way.
