Kayak Culture

Our most popular half-day trip. For the past few years, Yim Tim Tsai has receive ample government funding for a fascinating and invigorating revitalization. Every year, there is an Arts Festival that goes on for months and even as it is offical finished, more than a handful of permanent art installations still remain! So… no matter when you visit during those months or after, you will be in for a treat! Pay special attention to the delectable treats like Tau Foo Fa, Hakka tidbits. After wandering around the little village where everyone goes by the family name Chan, we will depart to explore the mangroves and disturb the dogs hanging aboard the fish farms.

Bonus: if lucky, we will be able to find some starfish!

First, we will show you a natural sandy levee at Pak Sha Chau not seen on the official government maps but unavoidable and almost blinding to the naked eye. Then, we kayak to Kiu Tsui at Sharp Island where the UNESCO title says its all: a different, completely natural rock levee made from volcanic activity thousands of years ago. It is all right there for your exploration: practice “walking on water” as you wade across the big island to the small island! Don’t forget to take the chance to do some snorkelling among these pristine waters. All the while, keep track of how many underwater “pineapple buns” you can find!

Bonus: we will show you the best kept secret thereabouts — a secret man-made pool!

Going round Sharp Island squeezes in all the aspects of Sai Kung islands in one day: UNESCO sights of volcanic  “walk on water” levee and tombolos aka “pineapple buns” aside, you will get to check out not one but TWO secret pools! You are very welcome to snorkelling either at Kiu Tsui Beach or at a place we call Little Hawaii. Taking a break at the picturesque Hap Mun Bay Beach, you can also hike up for fantastic 3600 views of Sai Kung itself. Otherwise, the highlight of the trip would be the rock formations such as the Elephant’s Nose, Upside-down Candle & Dharma’s cave. This trip will give you a solid workout amidst loads of fun!
