Cheung Chau Island, Hong Kong

#4 of 33 in Nature in Hong Kong
Island · Hidden Gem · Nature / Park
Nicknamed the "Dumbbell Island" because of its shape, Cheung Chau Island features six temples, long sandy beaches, sea food restaurants, a 3000-year-old rock carving, and a cave, which was allegedly the hiding place of a famous 19th-century pirate. Cycle or hike to the natural rock sculptures on the east side of the island, molded by weather into shapes resembling a flower vase and a human head. The Mini Great Wall, which is actually a long path, offers many vantage points over the sea. By using our Hong Kong day trip site, you can arrange your visit to Cheung Chau Island and other attractions in Hong Kong.
