Just a stone’s throw away…

Getting out of the city and into the sea

One of the highlights of living on Hong Kong Island is being so close to the beach. Any beach. Just pick a side of the island and within forty or so minutes you’re there.

Recently I had the pleasure of jumping on the nearest 973 and disappearing into the greenery of Hong Kong’s Southern District. On a usual day, I would have taken the route all the way to the end and got out at Stanley Market. But I decided to get off instead at Big Wave Bay, a smaller strip of beach before the commercial luxury of Repulse Bay.

There is truly nothing better than spreading out on the beach in the middle of a Wednesday afternoon. Granted, as a student, my schedule allows for such luxuries.

My little spontaneous day trip got me wondering where else I could spirit away to during the upcoming exam period.
