Discover Deserted Beaches in Hong Kong

By Samantha Coles

The bustling city might not spring to mind when you’re thinking of an escape to the wilderness, but don’t overlook Hong Kong — its verdant national parks make up 70 percent of the land. The flagship Mandarin Oriental is situated in the heart of the city, but you can reach and enjoy the remote islands, deserted sandy beaches, nature parks and mountain paths in no time.

Walk or kayak

Accompanied by an expert guide, take an eight-hour hike through the rural Sai Kung Peninsula and explore challenging mountain paths and secluded beaches. If you’re more of a water baby, kayak through the Sai Kung Country Park with a guide and search for uninhabited islands and yet-to-be-discovered beaches.

If you want to explore in a more traditional way, board a modern Chinese junk boat and head to Lamma Island: it is best known for its traditional fishing villages and relaxed seafood restaurants.

Mandarin Suite from $9,945 per night. Contact Man Tak Cheung, reservations manager,, +852 2820 4202,
