If you visit Hong Kong, you’re probably immersed in bustling city lights – traffic, skyscrapers, and street food. A day trip out of the city to relax on one of the most beautiful beaches in the world might be just what you need. Long Ke Wan, part of Sai Kung East Country Park, is close to Hong Kong, easily accessible, and features one of the most beautiful vistas in this region.
Long Ke Wan is a quiet, secluded bay (similar to Thailand’s Maya Bay) surrounded by pine tree forests. It features a crescent shaped white sand beach, and unobstructed views of the South China Sea. Long Ke Wan is less clogged with tourist groups than other beaches in this region, perhaps because it requires more planning to get there. This remote location also offers hiking trails – but be sure to bring your own supplies because there are no restaurants or accommodations here.
