Coast to Coast

There are four official long trails in Hong Kong, but at Drone and Phone we felt there was space for at least one more. We came up with this trail to take in many of the islands missed by the others and allow some extra time for enjoying them. Designed for a ten day trip, the Islands Trail takes you on a loop around the region.
Day three starts in Stanley with a hike up to the catchwater, before following the trail past Repulse Bay and up through the Tai Tam Country Park. We climb Mount Parker for sweeping views across Victoria Harbour before descending down to Sai Wan Ho Pier.

Like sections 1 & 2 of the Wilson Trail this hike goes from the south to north but chooses an easier route. There are options for hotels near the Sai Wan Ho pier, alternatively you can take the ferry across to Lei Yue Mun where there are also hotels.


Get to the start: To get to Stanley, take bus route 6/6X/260 from Central.

Get home: There is an MTR at Sai Wan Ho.
