The Sai Kung Peninsula is renowned for its scenic beauty. Situated at the east coast of the Sai Kung Peninsula, Tai Long Wan is headed by
two magnificent beaches, Ham Tin and Tai Wan. The Hong Kong Tourist Board describes Tai Long Wan as 'the jewel in the peninsula's

however, involves a number of bus rides and a beautiful walk along well-maintained paved village paths.

Alighting at a crest in Sai Kung Country Park, we are able to enjoy the views over Long Harbour as we slowly wind our way down to the quiet
village of Chek Keng. Peeking through the windows and doors of some of the abandoned houses, we try to imagine what life might have been

awaiting you at the top to take you into the heart of Sai Kung town and its many re-hydration spots….
