So Lantau Island is back on. This time we are going to head south along the coastline to Chi Ma Wan Peninsula and many wilderness beaches. We will be stopping at Shap Long to do some village exploring, stretch our legs and have lunch. There will be an easterly swell so we might even be able to do some surfing in the kayaks.
Our return journey takes us around Hei Ling Chau and Sunshine Island (with its abandoned hippy commune from the 1970's.
We then finish our day having dinner and a chilled wine or cold beer at the China Bear (next to the Moi Wo ferry terminal) to thank them for taking care of all our gear (bring some money). We will probably head to the Turkish for some live music afterwards before hiking into the mountains (15 mins) or heading back to central.
There is an overnight option for anyone who wants to stay Lantau. We have been given a house at Ark Eden to sleep in. All you need to bring is a sleeping bag and peace of mind. This is a beautiful remote place and will bring peace to your soul.
Make sure if you are staying the night you let us know.

From central take the 9:40 am fast ferry. It arrives at Moi Wo at 10:10 am.
Bring your lunch, a water bottle (full of water) and some shoes that will get wet when kayaking.
It is forecast for showers and 25 degrees C so you will be warm and wet. If you are staying overnight, bring a change of clothes and some long pants.
If you want to paddle the next day, RSVP to tomorrows trip to avoid disappointment.
Don't get yourself kicked out!
As with all our meetups we want courtesy when RSVPing. If you say yes and drop out at the last minute I will remove you from the group.
Can beginners attend?
Yes, we will be doing some skills training and will have double kayaks so beginners are very welcome.
