Fun Weekend at Shek O Beach & Village, Hong Kong

Shek O Beach has got to me my favorite beach in Hong Kong. I love the big waves and the clean super fine sand.





OB loves it too, after our holiday in Bali (which I must blog about before next year), he is getting addicted to playing at the beach.

After playing at the beach, we had a lovely lunch at a Thai eatery just across the road from the beach.
The food's decent, and the price isn't a rip off. We love it.










To fight food coma, we had a walk around the lovely village. Look at all these gorgeousness...




Of course I had to make SC do a narcissistic pose against this lovely old window.
Naturally.

Since none of us fancy carrying a naughty 3 year old, so we decided to drive through Shek O Village Road to view the amazing rocky beach at the end of the village.


We had fun doing silly poses, sadly there's no mommy in the picture. 
Sobs... don't worry, I did manage to include myself in photos from time to time by doing selfies.

To summarize, my favorite things to do in Shek O are:
1. Being a lazy bum hanging around the beach without getting into the water - preferably with a good read, snacks and drinks
2. Eat my way through the village
3. Exploring & photographing the village
4. Gawking at the amazing view, listening to the big waves hitting the rocks
But you can also do some hiking, surfing, flying kites, BBQ, getting pre-wedding photos taken, gawking at those getting their pre-wedding photos taken (we saw at least 3 different couples), etc etc etc. Enjoy!

How to go to Shek O?
Take MTR to Shau Kei Wan station & then take bus no 9.
If you drive, be there early (before noon). Parking space goes fast on weekends.
