Lonely Planet review
Shek O has all sorts of activities to keep you amused plus some creditable dining and drinking options. Shek O beach has a large expanse of sand, shady trees to the rear, showers, changing facilities and lockers for rent. It’s a good spot for swimming with several platforms offshore within a netted swimming area. In the village itself there’s miniature golf and from Dragon’s Back, the 280m-high ridge to the west of the village, there’s both paragliding and abseiling. Walking is possible around Shek O beach, though the terrain is steep and the underbrush quite thick in spots. You can also take advantage of several bicycle-rental shops.
