One of Hong Kong’s most popular beaches, Shek O is favoured by French expat families and laid back, eclectic locals. It can sometimes feel like half the city is there with you, especially on summer weekends, but is well serviced with changing rooms, showers, a playground and barbecue area. While there is rarely a swell, it’s a good place for windsurfing, or a wander through the charming village.
*** Visitors are advised to check the lifeguard services availability at the beach with the respective website before you visit. The public should not swim at the beaches without lifeguard services in order to avoid accidents. ***
