A tiny dumbbell-shaped island, Cheung Chau brims with culture, history and fascinating sights. Visit the island's Pak Tai Temple, a Taoist temple featuring traditional Chinese architecture. Stop by Tung Wan Beach, a favorite among swimmers, windsurfers and canoers, then check out the nearby 3,000-year-old Bronze-Age rocks with their intriguing geometric patterns and abstract animal images. The adventure continues with a 20-minute wooden sampan ride to the hideout of a famous local pirate. Finally, a stop at the Tin Hau Temple invites you to the worship place for the Goddess of the Sea. Complete with a dim sum lunch, and here you have your perfect island escape!
