Early on a clear summer morning, from an islet by Shek O, you can appreciate Hong Kong’s superb location on the south China coast.

Exploring Hong Kong's islands, you can stroll along narrow streets, hike trails across hills and headlands, admire waterfalls, and relax on beaches.
Though best known for its vantage overlooking Hong Kong city and harbour, the Peak on Hong Kong Island offers a wonderful introduction to the wilder side of Hong Kong. Possibilities for outings range from an easy circular walk to full-blown hikes.
Perhaps the finest short hike in Hong Kong runs up and along the ridge known as Dragon’s Back, which forms the spine of the southeast headland of Hong Kong Island. Coupled with a visit to the eccentric coastal village of Shek O, this makes for an excellent rural outing, at once near yet far from the city.
