Hello Allmylovers, I hope you’re all having a lovely long weekend!

Last week, the boy and I enjoyed a quick hiking trip along Dragon’s Back towards Big Wave Bay.

This is the last section of the Hong Kong trail. With stiff and challenging climbs over rocky hillsides, if you are not used to hiking, you will find this section the most demanding part of the Hong kong trail. But what makes this effort worthwhile are the views of Tai Tam Bay behind you and the panoramic views of Shek O.

Once you’ve passed the summit of Shek O Peak, the descent is made through an eroded and well-used path. Views of villas and swimming pools stretching towards the Big Wave Bay beach can be seen and distant shouts and laughters from the beachgoers can be heard from up here.

Then, a very short descent through tree-shaded pathways takes you on the last stretch to Big Wave Bay beach – hooray!!

After passing a few village houses, follow the path along the seaside shops and food stands to find the beach.

Big Wave Bay is surrounded by rocky outcrops, has an allocated BBQ area on the left hand side of the beach and offers an array of snack shops that are scattered around the beach. You can find anything from a local resto serving hot seafood, a very popular food stand where you’ll find a long line of queue formed by hungry eaters awaiting to buy BBQ corn on the cob, huge sausages and pieces of chicken, to snack shops selling ice-creams, chilled drinks and fresh young coconuts! Totally tropical!

But as tempted as I was to get my dirty hands on a pretty young exotic thing, I already had a tight grip on my Jax Coco chocolate flavoured coco water. If you haven’t tried this new flavour, you must – You be loco not to try this coco!
