Shek O, a beachside fishing village literally meaning “rocky bay” is one of the highest graded and ‘sandiest’ beaches in Hong Kong. Given its isolated location it remains rustic and tranquil – both of which add to the area’s main attractions. It is becoming a popular weekend and holiday destination, offering a public barbecue area and many restaurants. The “rocky bay” is also an extremely favourable destination for the explorers and hikers of Hong Kong with a network of caves and routes to explore.
