This lush green peninsula in northeastern Hong Kong has long been considered the ideal weekend escape from the city with a reputation for a peaceful coastline, pristine beaches, exclusive yacht clubs, and historic hiking trails and nature reserves, not to mention some of the freshest seafood in town.
Although slightly more remote from the rest of the city, both Sai Kung and Clear Water Bay Hong Kong make up for what they may lack in urban excitement with a truly amazing coastal lifestyle that is unique to this residential area alone. This tranquil stretch of coastline, ranging from renowned Silverstrand Beach to Hebe Haven, is easily accessible and, only about a 30-minute drive from Hong Kong’s Central Business District. While Sai Kung’s coastal seafood restaurants have long been the area’s claim to fame, the uniqueness of both Sai Kung and the Clear Water Bay property landscape has quickly increased in popularity as a luxury residential area featuring beautiful open landscapes not easily found on the more densely populated Hong Kong island.
Village homes, villas, low-rise apartments, and cluster developments tend to be the norm on the Sai Kung and Clear Water Bay property market, with more and more stunning, private hillside and coastal properties, as well as remarkable new private developments that are redefining the concept of luxury country living. Popular among families, there is a range of local and international schools located here that caters to those unwilling to trade the tranquility of nature for city living. Although Hong Kong Island is not far away, The Royal Hong Kong Yacht Club and Hebe Haven Yacht Club are both located here, offering several exclusive amenities to its members, adding to the excellent range of opportunities for outdoor enthusiasts. It’s easy to see why Sai Kung is affectionately called "home" by those seeking a true coastal lifestyle removed from the trappings of city life.
