If you wander around Shek O, you'll find Shek O divided into two areas: A smaller area located on the northern tip of the beach are the rich palaces of the rich. These mansions look out to sea with large glass windows and are known to be the most expensive area in Hong Kong. The rest is bigger and the town is pretty simple but no less interesting with the small labyrinths that make up the maze for travelers to explore. There are two high rise buildings in the area with such inexpensive, sea-facing balconies as the northern area but perhaps enough to be classed as luxury in the majority of Hong Kong's population.


Shek O Beach is quite large, clean and well managed. At Shek O Beach, there are shared toilets, fresh water baths, dressing rooms and, in particular, lifeguards and sharks during the summer months from April to October. Clean, beautiful beaches also have seasonal variations. In the summer, Shek O beach is really crowded and busy. Therefore, if you want to have a comfortable and quiet environment, it is best to come early or arrive late, but it is best to arrive early in the season.
