Activities and Family Activities in Hong Kong
Hong Kong provides a wealth of outdoor leisure and cultural activities in both rural and urban areas that you can enjoy with your family. Although it is a developed urban area cramped with skyscrapers, 40 percent of the area is classed as a country park and the territory has natural parks and place for outdoor activities which include: walking, hiking and climbing; cycling and mountain biking; and horse riding.
Located close to the Dragon’s Back, Big Wave Bay Beach is a popular place for windsurfing amongst travellers and locals. It’s hard to imagine that a bustling city like Hong Kong can have amazing cycling opportunities. Cycling is a popular pastime in the city; and the cycling tracks are mesmerising and haven for cyclists.
The Dragon’s Back has frequent mentions in travel guides. It is one of the most popular hiking trails as it is easily accessible from the city and offers scenic views of Tai Long Wan, Shek O, Tai Tam, Stanley and the South China Sea. If you have a thing for snorkelling or mangroves, head to Hoi Ha Wan Marine Park, which is a protected area and home to 120 species of coral fish and 60 types of hard coral.
