I was staying on the eastern side of Hong Kong Island so decided a reasonably local attraction near Kennedy Town was a good option. I went early (about 9am) on a Monday morning via the MTR to Kennedy Town then walked up the hill (though there was a bus) to the stairs leading down to the sheds. There was only a couple of women there who were surprised that I had found it. There was no-one else and no-one was swimming. Being by myself and not being a strong swimmer I was hesitant to descend to the little pier so just wandered around the buildings, the little shrine and admired the view. It was something a bit different but I'm not sure it would be worthwhile making a special effort to see it. While the view once there is pretty, the walk there doesn't offer many sea views and is a bit industrial.

Maybe we chose the wrong time, but it was super busy.
People waiting patiently to take that shot.
Hmmm.
We did not.
We could not relax at all, and the view, though lovely, not something that is an absolute must in HK

Amazing spot to take pictures and watch the sun set, even if the whether is cloudy. However, I think it's not really meant to swim. There is no beach, no limitations. As the current is quite strong, even when holding the bars, you can get a bit hurt. Therefore, I think it can be dangerous.

...you’ll find this small complex which includes some sheds in which to change and a small pier. The views out to sea are very nice and from I’ve seen are incredible at sunset, though apparently it can get very busy.

Popular Instagram spot an easy 10 minute walk from Kennedy Town. Come with a book and climb the nearby rocks to avoid the crowds queuing for pictures. A good place to watch the sunset and experience a bit of zen in the city.

Well known by the Oldies as the Swim Spot on HK Island。Around 15 minutes walk from Kennedy Town Mtr Station. Some people.might walk pass the entry as there no clear sign to say the Spot is at the bottom so take notice. I didn't get to swim as I visited during the Typhoon Time and didn't wanna risk being pulled by currents by some.oldies were at it lol. Such a gem of a place.

Just take a taxi from the Kennedy train station. It is not difficult to find the entrance to the harbour area. The steps are a bit steep and slippery. Not exactly ideal for old folks or parents with prams. Once you reached the little pier, you just have to follow the queue for that Instagram shot.

It's quite a walk from the nearest town, or you can jump on a bus. There are about 50 steps down to the jetty, and another back up. Pre-spray insect repellent!

A quiet place to take awesome photos of sunset in Hong Kong. Easily accessible! you may walk there from MTR station or take buses or minibuses to go there.
