    Cool Which beach is best for young children?

    We are new to Hk and are thinking of taking our 2yr & 3yr old to the beach. Any suggestions welcome.

    We just went to Cheung Chau Island yesterday. Apparently the beaches there are at the top of the list for water quality in HK (not saying that much, but...). There were tons of kids swimming.

    Thank you so much. Sai Kung does look lovely on internet...might try to go there this week. We went to Cheung Chau last week and weren't impressed. Looking forward to it!

    We like Shek O , very clean, soft sand and fewer people.

    Cara, which beaches would you recommend that are accessible by car in Sai Kung? Would love to try them.

    Our kids (1 and 3) love Shek O, but like so many HK beaches, you can hit it on the wrong day and the water can be really dirty. It was beautiful on Sunday however - soft white sand and clear water.
