One of the longest beaches in Hong Kong, Cheung Sha Beach is split into two sections, Upper and Lower. It is a quiet and peaceful place to take in the tranquil beauty of the green cliffs and the clear blue waters, although on the weekends, it does tend to get busy. You will find plenty of facilities here including a number of restaurants, as well as changing rooms and toilets.

Seperated by a small headland, the upper section of the beach does not have amenities, so has slightly more of a feeling of seclusion. There Is a rocky path to follow, and there is plenty of space to go for walks and take in the scenery. After the beach, you can check out the Tian Tan Buddha, Po Lin Monastery, and Tai O fishing village. They also have the Ngong Ping 360 cable car for views of the surrounding area.

The great thing is that you can start on the Lower Beach with all of the amenities and other people and then take a walk to the Upper Beach where you can feel as though you are all alone. If you want to take a moment to enjoy the breathtaking scenery, the Upper Beach is quieter.

Take a ferry from Hong Kong to Lantau Island (Mui Wo). Then, you can catch a bus to Cheung Sha Beach.
