After spending time indoors due to lockdowns, nothing beats enjoying the great outdoors; in Hong Kong, there are plenty of places to do this along with some adventure-filled activities.
Surfing at Big Wave Bay
While the one to six-foot waves at Big Wave Bay may not be as challenging for seasoned surfers, they still offer plenty of fun. Those staying at Tsim Sha Tsui properties like Park Hotel Hong Kong can easily plan a visit here; to add to the excitement, access the beach by hiking along the Dragon’s Back Trail.
Hiking the Lantau Peak Trail
Adventure enthusiasts staying at budget or 4-star hotels in Hong Kong can hike the trail of the second-highest mountain here, Lantau Peak. Located on Lantau Island, the trail features a climb of around 3,054 feet and it takes around 2.5 hours; mesmerising views await be it of the Big Buddha or a magical sunrise.
Wakeboarding in Sha Kiu Tau
One can take a cruiser or junk boat to Sha Kiu Tau to enjoy the speed-filled thrills of wakeboarding. The sheltered area is perfect for this activity while sunbathing on the shore and swimming in the ocean are added allures; you can find operators which offer boat hire and wakeboard equipment for this excursion.
Canyoning in the New Territories
Set amidst mountain landscapes, the New Territories is ideal for canyoning in Hong Kong. A popular spot for this is the Ping Nam Stream which has various plunge pools and waterfalls. It takes around two hours to reach the point where you can begin a descent that will feature bum slides and waterfall abseils.
