Turtle Cove Beach

Turtle Cove Beach - Hong Kong
© Prosperity Horizons

Named Turtle Cove because it is the last known nesting spot for Hong Kong’s endangered green turtles, this beach is tucked away in a protected area with a sandy beach, rocks, and verdant hills. It is closed from June to October to protect the turtles, but when it is open, it is a great little getaway spot.

This beach is on the south side of Hong Kong Island, so you will have no trouble getting there. You can take a bus or a taxi, and then you can walk through the forest down a stairwell to this remote beach. There are seasonal showers and lifeguards, but no other amenities. You won’t find anyone selling food or drinks, so bring your own if you plan to stay. This is a quiet spot for relaxing and enjoying the scenery.

This beach is south of the scenic Tai Tam Reservoir, which is one of Hong Kong’s best hiking trails. You can take a walk here to relax and escape from the busy city. If you are looking for a quiet spot to enjoy the beauty and nature of the island, Turtle Cove Beach is a great choice. There are plenty of sights to see and trails to hike in this quiet location.
