MacLehose Trail (Section 2)Long Ke to Pak Tam Au
MacLehose Trail Section 2 is one of the phenomenally popular hiking trails, and this is the best section for you to feel the beauty of the coast of Hong Kong. At the start of MacLehose Trail Section 2 is the steep, 314-metre Sai Wan Shan; only after descending from this mountain can you reach Sai Wan beach, otherwise known as “the Maldives of Hong Kong”. With white clouds in the azure sky and crystal-clear seawater, the hike will be well worth it when you reach Sai Wan. In the stargazing area in Sai Wan, you can even rest and take photographs by day against the benches resembling staves and piano keys. Moving on from Tai Long Wan will bring you to Ham Tin Wan, Tai Long Au and then Chek Keng. Chek Keng Village has over 200 years of history and although not many people are living there now, the pier, shingle beaches and mangroves in the village present to you another type of scenery, which will be fondly etched in your memory.
