Sharp Island is located near Sai Kung Town Center. Regular boats leave for Sharp Island from Sai Kung Public Ferry Pier and the journey only takes 10 minutes. Left to the Sharp Island Pier is a beach, an ideal spot for younger children to explore the waters and snorkeling. Walk past the beach and tombolo, there is a snorkelling spot! Located 20m offshore, the water is shallow without currents which is perfect for beginners. Reefs with leaf corals, brain corals and daisy corals can be found, along with colourful fishes and rich biodiversity!
Before your departure, check the tides from the Hong Kong Observatory. The tombolo will appear when the tide is lower than 1.4 meters. Do not attempt to cross the tombolo when it is submerged!
