Which beach is best for young children?

the best beaches in sai kung are NOT accessible by car...
hoi ha is lovely, you park your car at the park gate and then either taxi in to hoi ha or get on the hoi ha minibus.
beware: to ANYONE wanting to come to sai kung on a weekend...it gets VERY VERY VERY busy!!! it's best to come on a weekday and have the beach to yourself!

We've been wanting to go to Sai Kung forever now - the photos I have seen of the area have been unbelievable. But it's just toooo far by public transport - And it only takes you so far. We would have to travel more than 2 hours to get to one of those beautiful places. One day...
Shek O sounds really nice. Slightly closer than Sai Kung from us, but still...
There is a HK gov't website that lists all the beaches in HK (that are looked after by HK) and what facilities they have and the clarity of the water, etc. It might be useful to pick through the lists to get an idea of which ones are good. They list every tiny little beach in HK.
I think if you're coming from a country that has loads of coastline and clean water, you're not going to be too impressed with anything. But it's not all that bad, and beggers can't really be choosers, hehe.

jennifer, it shouldn't take that long to get to sai kung... get to monkok and take the red minibus... that minibus only takes about 30 minutes to saikung town, occasionally a little longer.

Chung Hom Kok Beach is gorgeous for small kids, also has a playground where they can let off steam (as if the water & sand weren't enough)...!

We went to Clear Water Bay on Saturday. Our girls are aged 2 & 3. We travelled from Hung Hom by bus then taxi. The beach was clean, water was clear, spaces under trees for shade. It was lovely. My girls 1st day at the beach! Showers and changing facilities, toilets and a shop. Bus terminal at the beach was also handy. Got a bus and taxi back. (Much quicker getting home again) Would def go back.Thanks for the advice.
