Chillin’ out at Sai Kung Clear Water Bay beach

On our 7th day together, after a few hectic days of running around Hong Kong, all my little sister wanted was to chill-out at the beach.

Not too far away from the university are the lovely Sai Kung Clear Water Bay beaches. My sister was very surprised as to just how clear the waters are, just how white and comfortable the sand is, and how nicely the whole beach was taken care of. I agree, this is nicer than most beaches you have in either Israel or Taiwan.

Some things that are interesting to note. Atleast two cleaning persons were working at it around the clock making sure the beach is absolutely spotless.

Two lifeguards were always patrolling the waters on two different stand-on little boats. Kids were running around relatively alone and carefree, spending hours by themselves building castles and moving around water. Occasionally, an adult would come and check what’s up, but I’ve never really seen little kids handle themselves so nice for so long like that. You might also notice that there are 3 floating ramps for people to swim and sunbath on.

Although there was only one shop there, a monopoly, prices were fair. A mattress, for example, went for 20HK$, and the food and drinks were cheaper than most malls. Local facilities were free and clean. My sister kept noting that it’s remarkable that no matter where you go in Hong Kong, the toilets/facilities are always neat and sanitized.

 

My sister was taking full advantage of the ramps, and after a few hours, while I went back for some classes, my sister went on a shopping and massage spree at Kowloon.
