Cheung Chau Island Hotel & Accommodation

10 km south-west of Hong Kong Island is little Cheung Chan - "Long Island" in Cantonese, and sometimes called "Dumbell Island" because of its shape. This one's keen on its temples, and Pak Tai and others are worth a guernsey, as is the Cheung Po Tasi Cave - a former pirate hangout, the story goes and a couple of great swimming beaches. The island's also got a good cafe and restaurant culture near the water. First Ferries take you to Central. Giving Dumbell a workout? Better book a room below.
