Wilder Side of Cheung Chau in Summer

Cheung Chau has some wonderful wild places – and interesting wildlife.

Look up during daytime, and you are sure to soon see Black Kites circling overhead, on the lookout for fish in the harbour or near the beach. Cheung Chau is one of Hong Kong’s best places for nesting Black Kites, with perhaps five or more pairs. Swallows are also common breeding birds here, with nests often under low ceilings just outside shops and houses.
