Sai Kung is located in the southern half of Sai Kung Peninsula and north of Clear Water Bay Peninsula in the New Territories.
Once a fishing village, Sai Kung town underwent significant expansion in the '80s and '90s. In recent years, the government has invested heavily in Sai Kung, with improvements being made to the town seafront, such as the Waterfront Park. An attractive mix of small boutique-style shops has sprung up due to a sizeable expat population and increasing numbers of local visitors.
Shops sell everything from secondhand books to cat-themed accessories, with alternative lifestyle stores that offer items like surfboards, candles, incense, seashells, etc. The village of Sai Kung is also noted locally for its seafood restaurants, many of which congregate on the seafront, known as 'Seafood Street'.
In terms of living, Sai Kung is similar to its neighbor, Clearwater Bay, in that there are no high-rise units in the area. Housing ranges from small apartment blocks to large detached residences, with secluded village houses with terraces or garden and a few townhouse complexes complete with facilities and swimming pools. It is very popular for families with young children who need a lot of space for their money and who don?t mind living in a rural environment and commuting.
The school situation in Sai Kung is set to improve even further, making Sai Kung even more popular for families with children nowadays. There are several Kindergartens & Pre-Schools in the area: The Woodland Sai Kung Pre-School, Sai Kung International Pre-School, Newsong Christian Kindergarten and Leapfrog. In 2013 Hong Kong Academy moved to a purpose-built campus in Sai Kung, designed to maximise experiential learning, community engagement, and environmental sustainability. Also, Kellett School opened a new campus in Kowloon Bay with a new bus route going to the Sai Kung area. Sai Kung is within the catchment area for Renaissance College located in Ma On Shan, an ESF school, a short drive to the north.
Sai Kung Country Park is an area of restricted development featuring numerous small villages and beautiful beaches. There are actually more facilities and amenities in Sai Kung than Clearwater Bay i.e. watersports, fitness centres, outdoor dining, country parks, hiking trails & unspoilt beaches are all a few minutes away.
In addition, the large island of Kau Sai Chau is the location for a public golf course developed and run by the Hong Kong Jockey Club. The golf driving range center in Ho Chung is popular with local residents and tourists alike. The Royal HK Yacht Club maintains moorings and a small Clubhouse at Shelter Cove.
