Hong KongHikesAn avid explorer and outdoorsperson, Martina shares her favorite routes and tips for great day trips in Hong Kong. 
  1. Tai Long Wan 

    Take advantage of the cooler weather and make the journey from Sai Wan Road in Sai Kung to one of the most beautiful beaches with the clearest waters in Hong Kong. Have lunch at one of the restaurants at Ham Tim Beach or, bring a tent and set up camp at Tai Long Wan and spend the night. In the morning enjoy breakfast alongside some truly stunning scenery.  
  2. Lantau Island

    Begin near Nim Shue Wan in Discovery Bay and walk along the easy trail to end in Mui Wo. Optionally you might want to extend the hike and visit the Trappist Monastery. This short trip leaves plenty of time to head to Cheung Sha Beach to enjoy a South African feast at The Stoep restaurant.   
  3. Lion's Rock

    From Sha Tin Pass Road, climb upwards to Lion Rock and revel in 360⁰ panoramic views of Kowloon and New Territories from one of Hong Kong’s most recognizable natural landmarks. On especially clear days, the view can extend towards Victoria Harbour and the Hong Kong Island skyline for lucky hikers!
  4. Lamma Island 

    Starting at Yung Shue Wan, enjoy the nearby beaches, hilltop pavilion and magnificent view of the 71 foot windmill en route to historic Sok Kwu Wan Village, where it is essential to finish the day with a fresh seafood dinner. 
  5. The Peak

    For a hike closer to the urban centre, start at Pokfulam Reservoir, and finish on Lugard Road, via the lesser travelled Barker Road and Tramways Path for exceptional views of the Hong Kong skyline. Next, refuel with some healthy fare at Pure Veggie House for dinner.

    Bonus Tip: After a refreshing day outdoors, don’t forget to reward yourself with a foot massage!
