Sai Kung is known as Hong Kong’s back garden. It is the best place for hiking because of the beautiful trails, green hills, and beaches in the area. It’s also locally famous for it’s fresh seafood eateries.
People come to Hong Kong’s gorgeous Sai Kung to relax on Sundays and holidays.
The village of Sai Kung is where you’ll find all the seafood restaurants, many of which are on the seafront, known as Seafood Street.
These laid-back eateries are a great way to recover from a day walking the hills, though the freshness of the seafood and the charm of Sai Kung village are enough to justify coming here to eat without hiking the hills.
We recently went there for hiking and also enjoyed a boat tour of Sai Kung‘s nearby islands and Geopark. It was a nice day as we walked along the street looking at boat tour options for different islands and Geopark. It is about a 2 hour 30 minute cruise.
The boat we picked was a sampan boat that cost five of us HK$400 (about US$50). It is about an hour’s boat ride to get to the islands and rocks of Geopark. Along the boat tour, we saw beautiful beaches, some empty and some crowded with people.
We also got a glimpse of a charming public golf course with a beautiful sea view. It is a challenging course, as it is hilly and right on the ocean.
Along the way, we also saw the largest fishing farm where the locals raise all kinds of fish to supply the restaurants on shore.
Sai Kung offers white sand beaches, green hills, a great ocean-side golf course, seafood, and relaxed people. If you are traveling to Hong Kong, make sure to add this to your itinerary.
