  • Good summer swimming too, winter on a lot of people to go to the waves. With Shi O bi-monised by many people, may be due to the bus into the li, only the minibus with the self-inflicted.

  • When the Dragon Ridge was on the day with 35 friends, take the bus from Shau Kei Wan out, to the Land Bay, follow the road down the mountain, along the peak roads to the big Wave Bay, took a lot of photos along the way, after a break on the beach to the side of the shop to eat lunch, may be tired and hungry, a round of wind to eat the food, the heart return.

  • We decided to walk from the end of the trail of dragon’s back to big wave bay. I wouldn’t recommend doing this since there isn’t a pedestrian path so you have to walk directly on the road which isn’t very safe (there are vehicles going by pretty frequently and the drive fast). I would recommend taking the number 9 bus instead which is quick and painless (we did this for the return journey and were glad we did). Big wave bay is beautiful even on a dreary january afternoon. There were a bunch of surfers riding the waves even though it was pretty cool outside. There are a few shops around the beach so we sat nearby with a beer enjoying the sea air. There is also a trail going up at the other side of the beach which you can hike if you’re looking for a beautiful view of the bay.
  • Great beach. A few months after the typhoon, everything is back to normal. All is well
