Coloane Village & Cheoc Van Beach : Macau

While I was visiting Hong Kong I ran into an old schoolmate who invited me to come visit her department at the University of Macau, and so I had a chance to see Macau again. Macau is a really small place, and I’ve visited a few times, and so I was wondering if there was anything left for me to see and experience. Turns out that there’s always something new to try out, and in this case, Coloane Island offered a solution for the more country-side off-the-beaten track Coloane Village and the nearby beaches. Both are a treat. The village is quiet, isolated, sort of Portuguese style streets, with some temples, and various seafood restaurant options. Macau isn’t exactly a beach destination, but I found the beaches I saw far more pleasant than I feared, clean, white sand, and decent water.

If you’re in Macau and a bit tired of casinos and gambling and are looking for a different take on Macau, then Coloane is the spot for you. Lots of funky local stuff to try out, and you can easily spend a day wondering between the local attractions and enjoying the local beaches.

Some final photos from the lovely walk in that area…
