Wee beach bums are skipping the crowded sands of Hong Kong’s beaches in lieu of secluded sandy gems. Shek O’s Back Beach offers beach fun, clean water, a fabulous beach bar for sundowners and BBQ, and no crowds.

Located on the opposite side of the main beach in Shek O, the Back Beach is a secluded cove of family fun. When entering Shek O Village, head in the direction of the colorful houses. After about 5 minutes, you will see a blocked off paved road twisting down to the beach. Stroll down and pull up a chair at Ben’s Beach Bar for cheap and cheerful cold brews while the kiddies take to the beach! Or, better yet, reserve the BBQ space for a beach cook out. Before the sun sets, you will already be planning your next outing. Meet you there!
