There are two main beaches on Cheung Chau: Tung Wan Beach and Kwun Yam Beach. Although they are not as big as the well-known beaches along the Hong Kong Island coast, they do have their own unique qualities. Kwun Yam Beach is a beautiful fine white sand beach situated on the east coast of Cheung Chau. The water quality is pristine and it is classified as a Grade 1 beach. It provides many water sports facilities, particularly for windsurfing fanatics, and is a particularly good location to enjoy the extra actives that Hong Kong Junks can offer.
