Shek O is a beachside village located on the south-eastern part of Hong Kong Island, in Hong Kong.The name "Shek O" literally means the "rocky bay". The entire area is a peninsula on the southern coast of the Hong Kong Island, facing the South China Sea. Shek O is surrounded by Shek O Country Park, Big Wave Bay and Cape D'Aguilar.The first place you need to go there is the beach. It is far away from the hustle and bustle of urban life, and the neighborhoods still maintain a natural style. The blue sky, clear turquoise sea water, fine sand and tranquil environment make it not only the beach-lovers’ paradise but also the rendezvous of surfing enthusiasts. In addition, the coastal mountain cliffs with their huge stones attract a large number of rock climbers. Near the beach, there are convenience stores, which sell swimming supplies, making one’s travelling very convenient. One thing to remember is to be careful when playing on the beach or surfing; especially in the summer months, as typhoons are common.

Frantic Activity
The beach is ringed by high rolling hills and dramatic drops, covered by Hong Kong's usual mix of shrubbery and trees, with rocks poking through the foliage. The settlement of Shek O itself combines the rustic charm of small village streets and huge mansions scattered over the verdant greens of the Shek O Country Club, owned by a handful of the richest and oldest trading families of the China coast. Lifeguards, shark nets and gentle rolling waves make this a popular beach.
