Fodor's Review

Three kilometers (2 miles) of golden sand make Cheung Sha Beach one of Hong Kong's longest stretches of sand. It gets breezy at this spot 8 km (5 miles) southwest of Mui Wo, so it's popular with windsurfers. Upper Cheung Sha Beach is equipped for barbecues, and there is also a refreshment stand. Sunset here is a perfect end to a sun-drenched day. There are only 50 taxis on the entire island, which you should keep in mind when things get busy. To get here, take the ferry from Central's Pier 6 to Mui Wo, and then hop on Bus 1 or 2 for about 25 minutes. Amenities: food and drink; lifeguards; parking (fee); showers; toilets; water sports. Best for: sunset; swimming; walking.
