From a small fishing village to a modern vacation paradise, Sai Kung can always surprise you with its countless activities, such as sunbathing, fresh seafood or having a walk along the volcanic rocks. Let’s check out the unique lifestyle in this lovely neighbourhood!


Sunshine and beaches, c’mon, it’s summer time! Beaches have become the symbol of Sai Kung, with famous beaches such as Silverstrand and Clear Water Bay blessing us with their natural beauty. Imagine sunbathing on one of these pretty beaches and watching your doggies running in and out of the water. Yes, this is what Sai Kung residents do everyday!


Water sports

Don’t you want to make the most of summer by trying out exciting water sports after lying on the beach for the whole day? If you wanna get active, go on junk boat parties or try out wakeboarding and water motorbike. There are countless water sports in Sai Kung – all you need to do is keep calm and have fun!!


Geographic adventure

It may surprise some of you that Sai Kung is included in the UNESCO listed Hong Kong Global Geopark. The next time you’re in Sai Kung, visit the marvellous hexagonal volcanic tuffs on High Island Reservoir and the rare sea caves composed of volcanic rock.



Other from swimming in the clear blue water, the scenic walking trail in Sai Kung is a great place to escape from the hustle and bustle of Hong Kong. The MacLehose Trail gives you a chance to breathe in fresh air and enjoy the unspoiled nature. You can also have a swim in Long Ke Wan, which is regarded as the most beautiful beach in Hong Kong. Don’t forget to bring your dogs with you – they can make new friends in this pet-friendly neighbourhood!



When it comes to fresh seafood, the dream becomes a reality in Sai Kung! You can choose your favourite seafood from the fishermen on their small boats, or the experienced chefs in nearby restaurants are more than happy to cook it for you in your preferred cooking style.



There is more to Hong Kong “nightlife” than clubbing and getting your flirt on in Lan Kwai Fong. Nightlife is Sai Kung is as chill as daytime – get a drink in one of the local bars, then sit back and enjoy the sea breeze. If you’re looking for a more active nightlife, squid fishing is another must-try activity in Sai Kung. Rent a boat, head out to the sea and have a squid feast!!
