Access from Honk Kong (HK) center is LONG ! Read the following indications.
Tai Long Wan ("Big wave bay" in cantonese) is in the Sai Kung country park (Sai Kung peninsula), North East of Kowloon district.
Because of access restriction, it's better to get there using public transportation... good luck with your board in a bus at HK rush hour ! Be nice, courteous with other travellers and it'll be fine.
At Choi Hung metro station (30 minutes), take minibus n°1A to Sai Kung (20 minutes), then bus n°94 to Wong Shek pier (10 minutes). Get on your feet and follow the signs to the beach (45 minutes).
The average one-way trip from HK center to the beach is 3 hours.
Very best access is by boat from Victoria harbour (20 minutes only) or anywhere you want.
Renting a boat is an option you should seriously consider to get there.
WARNING : this is South China sea, chinese triads (Mafia) are known to smuggle around remote places such as Tai Long Wan... avoid contact with people, boats and trucks who obviously do not want to be seen or contacted.

 Informations supplémentaires

Tai Long Wan is made of 4 bays, facing North or East, linked together by a footpath. 'Main Beach' ('Tai Wan') is the best for good size swells. It gets swell year-round but the surf becomes gorgeous in the NorthEast monsoon season (N hemisphere winter) : 2 weeks/1.5 meter swell are not uncommon...
Surf the place from mid- to high tide (or high to mid); low tides make things out of control.

Atmosphère

Mostly uncrowded, this spot is the best by far in Hong Kong or even in all South China. As i said, this is a 'regional classic' and it ain't a joke.
If you consider Hong Kong's 24/7 rush and overpopulation, getting at Tai Long Wan is just like going to another world. Nearly nobody, no accomodation and this beautiful landscape with pristine beaches and green bush around : great !
This is protected natural area, though, and you do have to think about security before you go.
No lifeguard, no public phone, no toilet, no hotel and few inhabitants : consider such a trip at Tai Long Wan with survival in mind. Bring water, food, camping gear and anything you need to be autonomous. 1 wood-shack is known to sell meals (but it's hard to call it a restaurant) and you'll also find few rugged camping facilities.

Général

Good on average conditions, excellent on good conditions, Tai Long Wan is a rare, unexpected place for the traveler or businessman in Hong Kong.
If you do go in South China (i.e Shenzen or GuangZhou), you can consider bringing your board for a short trip to Tai Long Wan, especially if you happen to be there from september to december.
In any case, you must now consider Hong Kong as a good place to surf !

Tai Long Wan (Hong-Kong)

Big Wave Bay - Another lesson. Catched plenty of waves and time to try a shortboard. Good tips. The spot is quite crowded but people really friendly. Beginners are welcomed by experienced surfers. That is a real plus.
