Long Ke Wan, also called Long Ke Beach, is a white sand paradise nestled between the hills and capes of Sai Kung East Country Park, facing the South China Sea. Apart from its silky sand, the pristine beach is known for its crystal clear waters, gentle waves and spectacular ocean views. It is dubbed as one, if not the most beautiful beach in Hong Kong.
Behind the beach are shady trees and grassy lawn which make excellent spots for camping. Barbeque pits, benches and tables are available. Being in a remote location, the beach is usually deserted but can also get crowded at times. Tent space is limited so campers should come early to get a good spot.
Except for dry toilet pits, there are no other amenities. There are also no food or water kiosks so bring all necessary supplies for a comfortable stay. Reaching the beach require some hiking of about 20 minutes.
How to get there:
From Sai Kung Bus Terminal, take Bus 94, or take Bus 96R at the Diamond Hill MTR Bus Terminal (on Sundays and holidays) or take Bus 698R at Siu Sai Wan, or take Minibus 7 (Hoi Ha) at Sai Kung Town.
