Sai Kung is a small fishing village with picturesque boats, beaches and mountain scenery. The fresh seafood is plentiful and there are many dining options and wine bars along the seaside promenade. A day at the beach here makes for a nice change of pace from Hong Kong.

The hike out to Sai Kung is great and the beach is beautiful. Despite its predominating reputation as a megatropolis, Hong Kong has many beautiful natural sites and some very enjoyable (and only moderately challenging) hiking trails to get to them.

This place doesn't even figure on the Trip Advisor list of attractions but it was the best place we visited in Hong Kong. It is a former fishing village that has expanded and now has loads of fish restaurants and an excellent seafront walk. It isn't convenient to get to, but well worth the effort.

I really like this part of Hong Kong in New Territories. A lot of expats live here and it's another Hong Kong with a beach. Too bad that all the "old and retro" Hong Kong shops with porcelain are gone. But there are still the fishermen and the great seafood restaurants.

A great get away from the craziness of Hong Kong. Plenty of restaurants, bars, and small shops to entertain you for an afternoon. Sai Kung is also a major starting/ending destination for Junk boat rentals and is extremely crowded during the peak season. One thing to note is that there can be considerable traffic issues both on the way/return as... More

It was a nice promenade and fun to see all the boats and ferries trying to take you to different places. The bus ride here from central was also interesting, worth trying the 1A just to ride the local way!

Sai Kung is a harbour where local fishermen bring there catch to sell from their boats next to the sea wall below the promenade. Also variety of seafood restaurants on the promenade where you can select your meal from the tanks in each. There is usually an artisan market and the small town centre has a number of interesting shops.... More

A great place to go if you want to escape the noise and the people in Hong Kong! Sai Kung has delicious seafood restaurants, quiet but nice beaches and enjoyable hiking trails to offer.

A welcomed break, surrounded by ocean and a greater sense of calm in comparison to the hustle of the Hong Kong city . It was great wandering through the streets around the restaurants and pier. You can catch a ferry or hire a kayak and venture to the islands close by. If you're a fan of fish, it doesn't get... More

Sai Kung is a bit remote for tourists but it is very good for seafood lovers, walking along the beach is also nice.
