With more than one beach called Big Wave Bay, Hong Kong sounds like it was made for surfing. In truth, the waves here aren’t as colossal as at more exotic locations like Hawaii or Tahiti. Still, the origins of the sport date back at least 40 years to 1978, the year the Hong Kong Surf Club was established. Although it only lasted four years, members of the club were pioneers of a pastime that’s been gaining increasing popularity of late.
If you’ve ever wanted to join the surfers you’ve seen at local beaches, or if you’re just the world’s biggest Point Break fan, now’s your chance to get involved. Winter is arguably the best time of year to surf in Hong Kong, and these are some of the best spots to ride the waves.
And if surfing doesn’t strike your fancy, why not get active on one of Hong Kong’s best hikes or cycling routes?
