You can spend a lovely, long, lazy afternoon here on a weekend. It’s off the beaten track but getting here is half the fun. It’s easily accessible by private boat but otherwise, you can walk in from the MacLehose trail or jump on the ferry or speedboat from Sai Kung pier.
This is no frills, casual dining, not unlike the Cheung Chau or Lamma Island seafood restaurants.
It has the most wonderful position overlooking a long jetty and small harbour on one side and a secluded sandy beach on the other. Its particular charm is that you can eat and drink, wander onto the beach for a bit, wander back to your table, eat and drink some more while the afternoon unfolds. Bring beach cricket or your boules set and play on the beach in the afternoon and you won’t want to leave.
On a weekend, it’s best to book ahead especially if you have a group. The menu is extensive. But the highlights are the salt and pepper prawns, whole fish and the steamed squid. BYO wine.
DIRECTIONS FOR HIKING IN: Either walk or catch a taxi to marker 12 on the MacLehose Trail (Stage 1). These are the only options because private cars are not allowed this far into the park. At marker 12, you will see a very clear sign-post on your right and a set of stairs leading downhill. It’s an easy 25 min walk downhill via a lot of steps. There’s only one point where you can go wrong. Keep an eye out for a signpost halfway down. It’s very obvious and is clearly marked ‘Tung A’. Turn left here. After that, just keep going along the path. You’ll cross a bridge and pass a large temple but just keep following the path around a small cove and until you see a dark green house and the restaurant is on your right. If you walk from the start of the MacLehose Trail, it will take about 1.5 hour. To return to Sai Kung, there’s a slow ferry or the restaurant can organise a speedboat for you, which is fun (around $80pp).
