Hike to Cape D’Aguilar

Cape D’Aguilar, or Hok Tsui, is a peninsula located south of Shek O located on the southeastern tip of Hong Kong Island. This Marine Reserve grants a picturesque view of coastal cliffs, and a century-old lighthouse. 

Nearby there are two sea caves formed naturally by the wave erosion of the sea. One of them is called Thunder Cave, named for the thundering sound of sea waves splashing against the rocks. You can stand inside this cave and appreciate the waves coming through the small opening. The second cave looks like a giant crab claw when viewed from the top of the cave and is thus called Crab Cave. 

Just besides the building are the bones of a whale for display.

Unfortunately, the bones haven’t been protected from natural elements such as the sun and winds and aren’t in the best condition.

It is very easy to get to Cape D'Aguilar. The number 9 bus runs quite often from Shau Kei Wan. The fare is about $7 if you sit on the upper deck to get the most from the views. The trail till the end is paved and is relatively easy and flat, with a slight incline. Total hiking time would be about 2 hours, going there and coming back. You can take a break at Hok Tsui Tsuen village and get a cold drink.
