Hong Kong has scenic hiking trails, picturesque cycling trails, idyllic islands and gorgeous sunset spots so it shouldn't come as a surprise that the city is also home to some of the most beautiful harbour views. After all, Hong Kong's English name means fragrant harbour.
But more so, Hong Kong also has a number of seaside towns where you can spend the day or weekend getting sunkissed at the sandy beaches, dining at the seafood restaurants and of course, enjoying the amazing harbour views especially when the sun is out and about.
If you're craving a refreshing view away from the giant skyscrapers and concrete buildings, we listed out where you can go for that much-needed seaside break whether it's Sai Kung, Stanley and many others.

1. Sai Kung
There are many things to love about Sai Kung—it's an ideal weekend getaway, perfect for a day trip, a foodie's paradise and a haven for photographers. This picturesque seaside town is brimming with cafes, restaurants and bars including Michelin-starred restaurants serving Cantonese seafood. To get the best views, head over to the waterfront promenade where you can always see fishing boats and seaboats, which completes the look of the town.
The area is also a great place to try some water sports such as scuba diving and kayaking. Or if you just want to go around the island, boat tours are available for you to explore around the town and the surrounding offshore islands. Yacht and junk boat parties are a common sight here too.
