2. Family-friendly hikes
Some brisk exercise up a mountain might sound nice for mum and dad, but sometimes the kids need something a little extra.
Keep the kids entertained on the Hong Pak Country Trail in Quarry Bay, where they can paddle in streams and clamber over boulders and rock stairs, while you enjoy the views.
Alternatively, the tranquil Lamma Island Family Trail is a well-paved walk that slowly winds uphill to around 100 metres above sea level, offering unobstructed vistas of neighbouring Lantau Island and Cheung Chau.
Discover Hong Kong’s unique biodiversity at Hong Kong Wetland Park and Tsim Bei Tsui. A stroll along the overwater wooden bridge will treat you to scenes of lush mangroves, vast mudflats, and diving waterbirds.
Lobster Bay is a pretty cove on the tip of Clearwater Bay that’s appeared in many local movies. Getting there means walking up stairs for half an hour, but its picturesque picnic spots and kite-flying hills are worth the climb.
