Long Ke beach: Hong Kong's best beach


Yesterday I finally decided on going to Long Ke beach in Sai Kung. I had been wanting to go there for years, but never really ended up doing it. The reason why this trip requires a bit of preparation in advance is that you cannot get to Long Ke by any means of transportation, you need to walk at least 30 minutes after previously having taken a cab for another 30 minutes from Sai Kung. Alternatively you can skip the taxi and hike all the way, a nice hiking path that will take you about 3 hours to complete. 
If you decide on the taxi option, expect to pay HK$100 for the half an hour ride from Sai Kung to the end of the route, past the East Dam. From there, you will need to follow the MacLehose Trail for half an hour to get to Long Ke. The path is safe and easy enough to hike with children. Once in Long Ke, you can camp for the night at Long Ke's campsite. Don't expect to find any shower though, all you get there is one single toilet. Long Ke doesn't even get mobile phone signal, but don't worry, I believe there is an emergency phone in case something happens. This is the prettiest and most relaxing beach I've ever been to in Hong Kong. Not a lot of people venture to it, making it the perfect spot to enjoy a beach day away from Hong Kong's frenzy. I'm not sure words can express the beauty of this beach that has become my favorite, but I hope these pictures will.
