An easy cab ride from any central hotel. Take a bottle of water and bathing suit if it's over 80F. We just splashed in the water and took a minibus to Shek O afterwards to have a delicious lunch by the sea at Copa Cabanna.

First part is a bit steep but once you get past the first part, it's easier. The view on the first part is what makes it worth it, the second part going back down was a bit boring. All in all, about 5 km, took...More

Yes. We stayed at the Shangrai La and they had lots of activities we could book directly from the hotel. We book hiking tour, bike tour and kayak tour.
