Tai Kwai Wan

Tai Kwai Wan is one of the larger sandy bays that can be found to the north west of the island by following the coast road beyond the Pak Tai Temple. Continue on with the firestation on your right past boat yards, past the mini-organic farm on your right and head up the hill towards the Cheung kwai public housing estate, then over the hill and as you walk down you will see the beach.

* Not suitable for swimming due to the lack of lifeguards or shark nets, but a great place to enjoy nature and relax. 

Pak Tso Wan

Pak Tso Wan, also known as Italian Beach or Afternoon Beach, is a great place to watch the sun go down on an afternoon in the cooler weather. Take either the coast road or the sam pan ferry to the Sai Wan in the West, then follow the road up and walk uphill. Remember to watch out for a sign just before the graveyard pointing out steps to the right leading down to the beach.
