Chung Hom Kok beach: my favorite beach in Hong Kong


Last Sunday I went to my favorite beach in Hong Kong. Chung Hom Kok (舂坎角) is one of the prettiest and most relaxing beaches in Hong Kong. Located at the southest part of Hong Kong island, between Repulse Bay and Stanley, Chung Hom Kok beach is an inlet that cannot be seen from the road. If you want to go there by public transportation, take minibus 40 in Causeway Bay (Tang Lung Street) and get off at Chung Hum Kok beach. You can also take bus 65, although this one only runs on Sundays and public holidays! Once in the bus stop, turn right. At about 100 metres, you will see stairs going down. This is the way to the beach. In fact, Chung Hom Kok beach is surrounded by lush vegetation, so nothing can be seen yet from this point.
I like this beach the most because it's extremely relaxing. It has nothing to do with the busy beaches of Repulse Bay or Deep Water Bay. I guess less people know about it, since it's smaller and, in a way, hidden.



I still hadn't been to this beach this year, since it's far away from my place, but the experience was as good as any previous times. The only drawback I need to point out is there were some rocks inside the water, which I found dangerous and annoying.
There is a small store in the beach where you can buy snacks and rent a parasol for HK$80. Behind the beach there is a BBQ area that gets crowded with friends' get-togethers on Sundays.

  62. I am a very honest and straight forward person. I am the type of the Western and European lifestyle. There are so many famous places of interest in Hong Kong. I can guide you sightseeing tour in Hong Kong. There are large bay with white sand beaches in Hong Kong.
