To truly enjoy a boat-paddling adventure, Sai Kung is the place to be! With its diverse range of water activities and numerous bays to explore, it offers something for everyone.
But do you know the differences between the various bays in Sai Kung? Let’s embark on a journey of discovery together!
Sai Kung is a unique community where urban and rural areas coexist. Free from the hustle and bustle of the city, it offers a serene environment and picturesque scenery, perfect for escaping the stresses of daily life and enjoying some leisurely sunbathing.
However, due to access restrictions in many bays, taking a boat is the best way to reach the hidden beaches of Sai Kung.
Snorkeling Paradise – Wong Chuk Wan
Looking to get up close and personal with corals and marine life? Wong Chuk Wan is the ultimate choice.
Located on the small island of Fo Shek Chau, Wong Chuk Wan is less crowded, providing a tranquil sea surface. Even in the shallow waters, you can already witness the beauty of vibrant coral reefs.
Environment Rating: ★★★★ (Tranquil sea surface, abundant coral reefs)
Serenity Level: ★★★ (Becoming popular among boat-paddlers in recent years, but still not crowded)

Hidden Paradise – Tai She Wan
Tai She Wan, located west of Leung Sheung Wan, is a small bay off the coast of Sai Kung. It is said to be named after a snake temple.

Environment Rating: ★★★ (Expansive view, calm waters, suitable for water activities, but the sand quality is slightly rough)

To prevent grounding, yachts are usually anchored several tens to hundreds of meters away from the shore, and fast boats are used to transport swimmers to the beach.
Not all yachts have fast boats available. If the fast boat is full or being used for other recreational activities like water skiing, swimmers will have to swim to the shore on their own.
