9 things to do

All Places Hong Kong

Walk between the main towns

The walk between Yung Shue Wan and Sok Kwu Wan is pleasant and not too challenging. Maybe plan 60 to 90 minutes to get across. Mo Tat Wan is another 30 minutes walk. Note in summer you should wear a hat for shade and carry plenty of water. This walk takes about an hour and is well sign posted. It passes a beach which offers swimming facilities within a shark free net and great views of the power station. The walk also provides great views of the island. After the walk, you can dine at the seafood restaurants adjacent to the ferry terminal. Although the walk is not difficult, it has a few steep sections and in summer with high temperature and humidity it can feel strenuous.

Rainbow Restaurant

The first, last and one in between are Rainbow restaurants with great food. A small lobster cost $140 and a small Salt and Pepper Squid cost $80. They also offer a free ferry service for customers which is a great way to see the harbour.

Kamikaze Caves

These caves near Sok Kwu Wan were apparently built by the Japanese army to hide speedboats that could attack allied ships by surprise.
