Starfish, shells, and sand...let's go!  We have found a haven of beachy bliss that will check all the boxes for your next family fun-in-the-sun outing.  Hoi Ha Wan Marine Park is a protected area in Sai Kung Park and offers visitors a treat for the senses with over 60 types of hard coral and over 120 species of coral fish.  From snorkeling and playing in shallow waters to hunting for treasures, this beach is easy to access and promises loads of smiles.

The Scoop:

*EASY:  Unlike some of the sister beaches around the area (which we love as well!), this beach is not difficult to access. It's easy with kids of all ages and does not require a boat. Bonus!

*PLAY:  During the summer months, the tide is low offering smaller kids access to a giant "kiddy pool" to play in and enjoy. Pop on the floaties and explore.

*EXPLORE:  There are loads of opportunities to meet marine life.  From the gorgeous corals to the starfish (literally everywhere!), the kids will be on the hunt to see it all.

*KAYAK & SNORKEL:  No need to bring a thing! Once you arrive, hit up Wan Hoi Rental for a family kayak, life vesta, and snorkel gear. It's recommended that you bring along a life vest for the little ones.

There is not a restaurant here so plan on packing a picnic!  Drinks and ice cream are available at the kiosk near the bus stop.  Note, This is not a dog-friendly beach, so Fido will need to stay at home. Sniff, sniff, sniff.  Click here for our dog-friendly guide to Hong Kong.
