Hong Kong No 6: Cheung Chau in the late afternoon

One-a-day posting No. 6 – Cheung Chau in the late afternoon. This shot was taken in December 2006 across the small Cheung Chau harbour from the Praya. Cheung Chau is one of my favourite day-trips in Hong Kong – the site of good seafood, temples and the hottest beach in the whole world. How many times have I received 3rd degree burns on the soles of my feet running across the sand to get to the water?! Sadly, the beach is now over-developed, so not as attractive as I recall from my youth. Our day out this December took in a circuit of half the island, steamed prawns in garlic with choi sum and lashings of San Mig, Chinese torture in the form of a complete back massage (how can a 7 stone woman cause so much pain?) and a sleepy ferry ride back to Central and Tsimsy. Heaven.

  1. You are right. This is the hottest beach in the world. We used to eat our lunch sitting in the water wearing hats, t-shirts etc. We always aimed to spend most of the day there but in the end, it was never much than an hour. Pure torture.
