Beaches in Cheung Chau

First-time visitors will have already heard a lot about Tung Wan Beach (located near the ferry), the most popular beach in Cheung Chau. Many find it a reasonable place but there are better and quieter beaches around the island including Kwan-yin Wan Beach, Tai Kwai Wan and Tung Wan Tsai beaches on the northern end of the island.

There are lifeguards on duty at the island’s main beaches during the day. If you plan to visit any of Cheung Chau’s Beaches, try to avoid the weekends and holidays.
