Turtle Cove

I finally managed to visit this beach, and it looks like a good one to go back to with the family.

This is one of the regular beaches for us to visit on the weekend. It's far enough out of the way to never get busy, but it still has lifeguards, showers and changing rooms.

Sometimes we'll make the trip to Lamma just to go to the beach, but we'll often start off with a walk from Yung Shue Wan, or lunch at the Rainbow Restaurant in Sok Kwu Wan, then end up at this beach in the late afternoon. Read more »

We arrived at this beach after originally planning to go to Stanley. I'd never been there before, but it is worth a visit - close to Stanley but much quieter than the actual Stanley beaches. Read more »
