Hike to Po Pin Chau

Hike D'Aguilar Peak
Hong Kong / Shek O Beach
This hike is a great option for those looking for a quick, but challenging off the beaten-path adventure with stunning views.
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.
