Hike to Po Pin Chau

Hong Kong / High Island Reservoir East Dam

This is a fairly non-strenuous hike which still offers some really nice views, the chance to gain some elevation and then cool off at a beach, and also learn some geology.

Explore Tseung Kwan O's (將軍澳) Secret Beach

Hong Kong / Tseung Kwan O Secret Beach

This beach may not have an official name, but some of the locals in the area call it "secret beach." The title is fitting. While not hard to reach, it is hard to find.
