Clear Water Bay Beach at Sai Kung

Last Black Saturday my friends and I went to Sai Kung to see Clear Water Bay beach (wala kasi kami magawa dahil hindi kami umuwi ng Pilipinas para sa Mahal na Araw maski pa bakasyon dito ng 4 days). When we think of Hong Kong, it’s easy to imagine high-rise structures, the famous harbor, Jackie Chan and noodles perhaps. Few foreigners know (kasama na ako dun nung bagong dating pa lang ako dito) that there are beaches in Hong Kong. Unlike the Philippines however, beaches here are absolutely free and accessible (pero siyempre mas maganda pa rin ang mga beach sa Pinas!). Armed with my trusty old digicam (I wish I had a DSLR now!!!), I made the most out of that chilly but pleasant Saturday afternoon. Here are some of the pictures I took.

It was too cold for a swim. Temperature forecast was 19-21°C that day. We stayed at Clear Water Bay Second Beach .

At this time of the year, Clear Water Bay is like Tagaytay and Puerto Galera rolled into one… Where clouds and hills meet the sea.

“Sai Kung Man”… There were plenty of seaweeds to collect.

    wow sarap naman.. Aheheh napatingin ako sa mapa kong nakuha sa hong kong, at di ko makita.. san banda yan?.. 😀 Oo nga may nasabi yung tour guide ko nun na meron daw beach sa Hong Kong, halatang lumilipad utak ko habang nasa tour bus.. Ahihih..
    Joe : Hi again Angel! Sai Kung is in the New Territories. Baka yung hawak mong mapa e Hong Kong city proper mismo? Hong Kong is divided into 4 main
    areas: Hong Kong Island, Kowloon, New Territories and Outlying Islands. Kelan ba balik mo dito? 🙂

    have u been to south bay (nam wan). its very nice too, in fact, that’s my favorite (small but beautiful beach, convenient enough, less ppl, not as crowded as many of the other beaches in the summer :D) it’s in between repulse bay and stanley. it’s $30 taxi ride away from the repulse bay.
    Joe: Not yet. I’ve only heard that Repulse Bay is the best. Can I get to South Bay by bus or by train? Thanks!

    u can go to repulse bay by bus (61 departing from the Exchange Square in Central i think) or by mini bus in Causeway Bay. Then from Repulse Bay, you will have to take a $30 taxi to South Bay. It’s a bit remote, in fact, that’s why its less people and more quiet when the near-by Repulse Bay is all mashed with people during the summer.
    Joe: Cool! I will try South Bay. Is it safe there? 🙂
