loved it! great views throughout the whole trail.
having lots of water is essential, there are also some drink vendors at Big Wave Bay to refill your stocks.
Saw people canoeing and doing other water sports on the beach.

One of the best hikes to take on HK island. Moderately difficult climbs, beautiful views and a rewarding beach at the end. Easy accessibility at both start and finish of the hike - public transport or taxi.

Started the trail near Tung Chung. The first mile is very steep with tall stone stairs that go straight up the mountain side without and flat portions. Even though shaded, doing this in the middle of a summer day forced me to take many breaks. After the first mile the slope mellows out a bit and the air cools off as you gain elevation. Once on top, the views make the climb all worth it. Once on the other side, there is a bus stop and ferry to get back to Hong Kong, very convenient. Beautiful trail!
