Brush off those buckets and spades and take your little ones down to Trio Beach in Sai Kung.  While this hidden treasure of a beach is small, you will find it child-friendly with all the facilities you need including a refreshment kiosk and shower rooms.  Explore away kiddos!

Tips & Tricks:

Getting There:  Sampans leave from Pak Sha Wan Pier in Sai Kung regularly and cost HK$20 per person for a return ticket. Boats are clearly signposted so you can’t go wrong. Just remember to take the same boat back or you will be charged again.

Beach Fun:  After a short journey you will arrive at a beautifully clean sandy beach with (almost) crystal clear waters to match. The lusciously soft sand is perfect for building castles and the shore is only a stone's throw away – ideal for keeping a close eye on your water babies as they splash about in the sea. As with most Hong Kong beaches, shady areas are few and far between but don't worry... umbrellas are available to hire from the kiosk.

Go Early:  Clued-up families with young children will already know that the best time to hit the Hong Kong beaches is early in the morning when temperatures are cooler and the masses have not, well, amassed. At lunchtime, hop back on the boat and head to the Pier for some delicious food at Padstow's!
