Historic villages, white sandy beaches, mountainous views and beautiful islands
Sai Kung is situated on the East coast of Hong Kong and is the second largest district in Hong Kong. It comprises the southern half of Sai Kung Peninsula in the New Territories plus a strip to the east of Kowloon. Known as the 'backgarden' of the ever busy Hong Kong, Sai Kung is characterised by beautiful scenery, charming villages and stunning seascapes. Thanks to its unique geographical location, Sai Kung remains largely pristine to its natural landscape.
Once a fishing village, the suburbanised Sai Kung now has many low-density residential properties which are increasingly favoured by expats. To name one, Hebe Haven, also known locally as Pak Sha Wan, situates several luxury developments comprised of townhouses and low-rises. It comprises a serene haven that harbours yachts and boats owned by the wealthy local residents. There are also many other houses, from village houses to modern townhouses, scattered across the whole district.
Sai Kung Town has become a local gathering place for expats living in Sai Kung. In addition to its many seafood restaurants attracting locals and tourists alike, there are also a good number of pubs and Western-style restaurants tailored to the appetite of Westerners. Other major daily amenities, such as supermarkets, drugstores, government offices, clinics, etc, are located in Sai Kung Town.
Relatively secluded, Sai Kung is served by buses, mini-buses and taxicabs only, without MTR linkage. But for those who opt to live in the quieter part and to enjoy exclusive water views, a private car seems to be a must-have.
In a broad sense, Clear Water Bay generally covers the northern part of Tsueng Kwan O and the entire Clear Water Bay Peninsula. As part of Sai Kung District, Clear Water Bay is dubbed as the backyard of Hong Kong, loved by expats for its sandy beaches and country parks.
Most residential properties are located on the slope sides by the two sides of Clear Water Bay Road, the main road connecting with Tsueng Kwan O and Eastern Kowloon. They range from "village houses" to luxury townhouses available for sale or lease for different housing budgets. Some residential high-rises have emerged in recent years, which feature clubhouse facilities, better building management and better security.
The recent development of its neighbouring town Tsueng Kwan O has brought the residents of Clear Water Bay enormous convenience. MTR Tsueng Kwan O and Hang Hau stations are just minutes away, and Eastern Harbour Crossing is the shortest route to Hong Kong Island, taking only some 15 minutes to cross the harbour. Shopping and catering facilities are more than enough in Tsueng Kwan O. For those who appreciate the serenity of countryside atmosphere and the beauty of seaside living, Clear Water Bay for sure has them all for you.
