Start at Siu Sai Wan Promenade and head uphill via Leaping Dragon Walk, serenaded by birdsong, through lush canopy to the Pottinger Peak View Compass.

Continue towards one of Hong Kong Island’s most popular beaches, Shek O, famed for its great views. Listen to the sound of the waves lapping the shore to relax and refresh.
There are village stores near Shek O Beach and Big Wave Bay.
