Long Ke Wan at Sai Kung – Beach & Camping

Looking for beaches or camp sites in Sai Kung and don’t like walking too much, Long Ke Wan beach in Sai Kung will be perfect for you. You could reach this pollution-free beach / campsite within a 20-min walk after a taxi ride from University MTR station.

Take a taxi from Sai Kung Town or MTR University station to “East Dam” of High Island Reservoir, one of the Hong Kong GeoParks, where you can see some rare polygonal volcanic rock columns, and also the huge concrete dolosse units that protect the seafront. Its beauty makes it become a famous pre-wedding picture-taking spot LoL.

After reaching the East Dam of High Island Reservoir, there are only 2 routes – walk down to take a close look of the reservoir or walk up to Long Ke Wan. Walk up for 20 mins (not tough at all – good for family or dog lovers) and you will see the South China Sea on your right and the Long Ke Wan beach in front of you. The building at Long Ke Wan is Long Ke Treatment Centre for drug rehabilitation.

Country Trail: MacLehose Trail – Stage 2 (You can walk there but just not too fun in my opinion)
Facility: No restaurants, Stream water (seasonal supply)

How to get there:
1a.Take MTR to Choi Hung (green line), get out at Exit C and get the 1A Green Minibus to Sai Kung Town (40 mins) OR;
1b. Take MTR to University Station
2. Then take taxi to”East Dam” of High Island Reservoir (30 mins, ~$150)
(my preferred way is through University Station)

Simply reverse the way you get there. If you are heading there for weekends, 5-7pm will be peak time and you probably need to call taxi. View this post for Sai Kung taxi numbers

    Andrew, to camp at Long Ke wan do we have to bring all our camp equipment with us
    or is there somewhere to rent tents? Also is there a restaurant there?
    Thanks so much for all the info. If I can pull my family together we might go this holiday weekend for one night.

      sorry for my late reply – i think best one is tai long wan, where the restaurant can provide a bbq spot and food, saving your time to organize everything.
