Pak Lap Wan

About Pak Lap Wan

Nestled in the beautiful and verdant hills of Sai Kung Country Park, Pak Lap Wan (白腊灣) has been described as the “Maldives of Hong Kong”. Pak Lap Wan is connected to Sai Kung Peninsula through the West Dam and East Dam at High Island reservoir. Situated adjacent to Man Yee Road (萬宜路) in Sai Kung, Pak Lap Wan is close to the East dam and Pak Lap Village (白腊村). The village has a unique century-old “Fung Shui Wood’ that is home to a variety of flora and fauna. Hikers are surrounded by beautiful scenery throughout the journey to the bay, with the final destination overlooking an offshore island in Rocky Harbour (糧船灣).
