Fodor's Expert Review Cheung Sha Beach

Lantau Island Beach

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.
