Although the summer months may be officially drawing to a close in Hong Kong, we’re lucky enough that the weather stays warm enough for us to enjoy water sports in the city almost year-round. And with the Covid-19 pandemic still putting travel plans on pause for the foreseeable, why not make the most of the extra time spent at home by exploring a different side of Hong Kong?
Perfect for a day trip, Cheung Chau can be easily reached from Central in under an hour. Along with cute cafes, shops and beaches, the island is a great spot to try your hand at kayaking.
Not only offering SUP and windsurfing rentals, the Cheung Chau Windsurfing Centre (CCWC) has kayaks to rent. Single, double and even triple kayaks and available, with a one hour minimum for all rentals, and life jackets included––ideal if you want to explore the island at your own pace.
If you're looking for an organised tour, A Team Edventures offer both day and night kayaking trips around Cheung Chau. The day trip explores coastal temples and rock carvings, while the night trip gives you the opportunity to paddle under the stars, with lucky kayakers even spotting the unique sea bioluminescence.
