Hike to Big Wave Bay

Hike to Big Wave Bay

My favourite spot in Hong Kong has to be Big Wave Bay at the northeastern end of the Sai Kung peninsula. There are a bunch of ways to get there, but we usually start by catching a taxi from Sai Kung to Sai Wan Ting. The ride can be a bit hairy, as the last section is a winding single-track road, but when you start walking, you'll be rewarded with views across the High Island Reservoir. Read more »
