Shek O Beach, Hong Kong

4.3
#2 of 18 in Beaches in Hong Kong
A contrast to Hong Kong's tall skyscrapers and big business, the seaside village of Shek O Beach shows the island's other side: pleasant beaches, a relaxed pace, and nature to explore. The area is even home to a prehistoric rock carving, depicting geometric designs and animals. Seemingly untouched by the arrival of the British, this little town has a stronger Chinese feel to it, with narrow lanes, colorful houses, and small temples. A hike up to a popular viewpoint affords a panoramic view of the coastline below. Use our Hong Kong trip itinerary planning site to visit Shek O Beach on your trip to Hong Kong, and learn what else travelers and our writers recommend seeing nearby.

  • Nice beach 🏝 but parking is usually an issue. Thai restaurant is a reliable spot for a meal. Umbrellas and beach 🪑 chairs can be rented. Changing rooms and the waves 🌊 are free. Nicer to visit in the fall when the crowds thin out. The village is a nice walk.
  • Beautiful beach and can be reached by buses easily. Ideal place for family activities and picnic.
