Accessible by ferry, car or helicopter from Hong Kong, Macau is comprised of four main districts: the Macau Peninsula which is connected to the Chinese mainland; Taipa, the south of the peninsula and major residential centre; Coloane, a less developed area with two beaches and an old village site; and Cotai, the section of reclaimed land between Coloane and Taipa.
