Two miles of golden sand 8 km (5 miles) southwest of Mui Wo make this one of Hong Kong's longest beaches. It gets breezy here, so windsurfers often don't have to contend with crowds. Upper Cheung Sha Beach is equipped for barbecues, and there is also a refreshment stand. The Stoep restaurant (32 Lower Cheung Sha Village, www.thestoep.com) on the beach serves great Mediterranean and South African fare. Watching the sunset here is a perfect end to a sun-drenched day.
There are only 30 taxis on the entire island, so on weekends, when things get busy, make sure you ask the restaurant to get you one back to the pier. To get here take the ferry from Central's Pier 6 to Mui Wo. Buses meet ferry every half hour on weekdays and Sat.; on Sun., buses leave when full.
