I kept hearing people talking about this Infinity Pool on Lantau Island, I’d never heard of it before but after a quick google check, I knew it was a place I needed to visit! It’s probably one of the most beautiful places in Hong Kong, and it can be quite tricky to find, but it’s definitely worth the effort! I went with a bunch of friends on a Saturday morning, and even though we did get lost more than once trying to get there, it was one of the best days! It took a little while to get there, and after walking up, up and a bit further up in the heat, jumping in the cooling water was the greatest feeling! We spent most of the day just hanging out, swimming, reading, laying out in the sun and just enjoying the most amazing view. Definitely, something not to be missed if you have an extra day in Hong Kong!
The infinity pool is located on Lantau Island, and to get there you have a couple of different options. You can take bus 11 from Tung Chung to Tai O, or take the ferry from Mui Wo and then take bus 1 to Tai O. Once you’ve managed to get to Tai O, a cute little fishing village on Lantau Island (and definitely worth exploring a bit as well!) it’s time to make your way to the infinity pool.
Once you’re at the bus station you’ll see a pier, so just go ahead and walk out on it and walk all the way to the other side of it. Once on the other side, you’ll get to a little village, go right and follow the shore for about ten minutes, and now it’s where it gets a bit tricky. Keep walking along the shore, and follow the indications towards Man Cheung Po. Keep following the Man Cheung Po sign for about 35 minutes, and when the sign points you in the direction of stone stairs, stop following the sign and just keep going on the concrete path forward. About ten minutes later you’ll see another set of stairs to your right, take those and just keep going forward until you see the infinity pool! It’s not the easiest place to find, but worth the effort! For a very detailed description, click here.
