Sai Kung Peninsular

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.

Things get a little easier on day five as you take a speedboat from Sai Kung promenade over to Sai Wan where you start a hike over the peninsular to catch a ferry to Tap Mun (Grass Island).

There are a few guest houses on Tap Mun, but we suggest enjoying star gazing in the open on one of the grass fields along the coast.


Get to the start: To Sai Kung, take a mini bus from Hang Hau or Choi Hung where there is MTR stations or a regular bus from Diamond Hill.

Get home: There are ferries from Tap Mun to the Wong Shek Pier and Ma Liu Shui near Shatin, but we suggest you spend a night there.
