From the Sai Wan Pavillion, the trail begins with the smooth concrete path to Sai Wan by the information board. It winds along the hillside with a striking view over greenish light blue surface on High Island Reservoir. Ascending slowly to Chui Tung Au, the trail leads down forward to Sai Wan.

Passing through Sai Wan village, the trail comes to Sai Wan. There are some small cooked food stalls and simple beverage stores. Walking to the beach, it offers a wonderful scenery. In the sunshine, white sands like powder and aquamarine waters give the Sai Wan its stunning appearance.

Chek Keng

Follow a concrete path from the restaurant and join the MacLehose Trail to the way of Pak Tam Au at the junction. Passing a rural village, the trail winds its way with a moderate slope up to Tai Long Au and then becomes downhill to Chek Keng. There is a scenic view of a shallow inlet with translucent waters of the sea among Chek Keng Hau. You could also enjoy the fresh and tranquil feelings over there. Along the trail, it leads you up and skirts the hillside. A shallow coast of To Kwa Peng comes into full view on the right in final leg, then it arrives at Pak Tam Road in Pak Tam Au.

Summary

It was hard to trek under a condition of high temperature. In summer, however, air becomes clear due to airflow from the ocean, every plants are more lush as well as the sea waters appear to be aquamarine and emerald. I think that being able to enjoy much sublime scenery was a reward.
