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.

Hiking in Cheung Chau Island
Scenic trails can be found throughout Cheung Chau, many of which come with good signage in English and Chinese. Exploring the entire island will take about 4 hours. No matter which way you head (up a hill, into wooded areas or along the coastline), you won't stray too far from the ferry pier.
Each hiking trail will eventually lead you to some of the island's well-known landmarks, like Tin Hau Temple and the North Lookout Pavilion, as well as small bays, quiet beaches, and local villages.
