Located on the eastern part of Hong Kong, Sai Kung used to be the home of the fishing population. It is now a typhoon shelter for yachts and smaller motorised junks.
Despite the falling number of local fishermen, Sai Kung remains a popular destination for high-quality seafood. At the same time, the village has transformed itself into a major hub for water activities. On weekends, the area is often crowded with tourists waiting to board yachts or speedboats.
Besides water activities, Sai Kung is also a gateway to numerous holiday destinations and scenic spots. For example, the Jockey Club runs a ferry service linking Sai Kung to Kau Sai Chau, Hong Kong’s only public golf course.
The Hong Kong Global Geopark of China – which hosts the most spectacular hexagonal columnar rocks in the world – is also accessible from Sai Kung.
Sai Kung is also easily reachable from the heart of Hong Kong, with many buses and minibuses linking the village to the urban area.
