Swimming, Hiking, Lunch and A Lot of Water Buffalo
Apr 2021
Mui Wo on Lantau Island is a very easy day trip. Half an hour on the fast ferry from Central and you are there. We recently spent a day here which included a walk to the waterfall, lunch and a swim. Overall, Mui Wo doesn't have as much to offer as Lamma or Cheung Chau islands and if you have limited time in Hong Kong, then they are a better island experience. However Mui Wo has a nice local village feel and visiting couldn't be easier. The thing I found most charming was the way that the local water buffalo mooch lazily down the main street and alongside the promenade as if they own the place. It’s definitely a different side of Hong Kong.
SWIMMING - The main beach is only a few minutes from the ferry. The sand was clean, the water was clear and it had good facilities, including change-rooms, toilets, showers, lifeguards, some small shops and the Silvermine Beach Resort hotel.
HIKING - There are several options for hiking – Lantau Trail, the Pui O Beach Walk (9km) or the Olympic Trail, (5.6km path linking Tung Chung and Mui Wo). We were after something even shorter and sweeter so we walked up to the Silvermine Waterfall which took us past greenery, farms and natural bushland. The Silvermine Cave, an abandoned silver quarry, is close by also. Both are just a 20/30 min walk from the beach. The only caveat is that if there’s not been much rain in the months beforehand, then the waterfall might be quite dry.
EATING - We had an excellent Italian lunch at Capo alongside the river but there are a number of casual restaurants and places to eat.
GETTING THERE – Ferries leave regularly from Central Pier 6 but it is worth planning ahead to get the fast 30 min ferry. The slow one takes an hour. The China Bear is a very handy waterfront pub where you can have a drink while you wait for the ferry back to Central.

Coldest Beer in Hong Kong
Jan 2021 • Family
Been here for over two years now and will keep returning. We hiked from
Discovery Bay to Mui Woo. MW is such a tranquil island and very relaxing.
Tak Chai Kee Restaurant faces the sea near the beach has the best Chinese food, great service and coldest beer. Love it here.

Point to note is ferry to central is every hour so good idea to check times while you eat.

Prices of restaurant is decent too.

Recommended !! For locals and tourists

The Nearest Resort You Can Get Away from Central
Dec 2019
Incredible. 35 minutes on Fast Ferry from Central Pier 6 to Mui Wo, 10 minutes walk to check in. I wouldn't recommend this resort a year or two ago when it mainly catered budget tourists staying overnight. When I returned last month, surprised to find it was cleaned up and the facilities (especially the bar and restaurant) much improved, and at moderate prices. Here you can enjoy typical English breakfast, traditional Dim Sum lunch, and barbecue dinner overlooking at the not-so-quiet beach with buffaloes lying on the (silvermine) sandy bay.

Very interesting

This is where you catch the ferry back to Central in HK. Great trip, lots of ship activity and superb views coming into Central itself. Well worth it.
The town itself is fairly quiet, well it was when we went midweek. Had a walk into town where the old part is fascinating. Has a small undercover market where local food produce is available - live fish etc.
I don't know why but it is bike city. Has cycle paths and everywhere you go there are bikes.
The walk along the seafront is very nice.
Mid afternoon and we were hungry so dropped into the Mui Wo Cooked Food market where there are a multitude of restaurants. We went into the Wak Kee Seafood restaurant and took a table outside next to the water. We were the only ones there but had a lovely meal which was very reasonably priced. My wife had the Egg Foo Yung which she said was the best she had ever eaten. I had a plate of noodles with praws. There was lots of it and it was great.
The lady who served us had slumped over on a table and was fast asleep. So, when it came to pay the bill I went into the main part of the restaurant and found the owner asleep with a towel over his head. Very amusing to see. They were having a well earned rest while there was a lull in business.
It's near the ferry terminal. Seek it out and enjoy.
This is a lovely spot and you can watch the fishermen and it has a very quiet small beach.

First outing on the ferry from HK
Jan 2019 • Family
What a wonderful place. It’s quiet but if you want to get away from the crowds and neon this is going to suit you well. Lovely walk along the river and into the villages along the “old village path” . It got dark because we were late arriving but it was so interesting seeing such a rural location where bicycles are are the norm for transport. Topped off by the best decision of the holiday and missing the 8.30pm ferry for the 9.30pm to eat at Tai Chak Kee (Sun Lee) seafood restaurant!! Clams , langoustines and unbelievably tasty veg so fresh and beautifully cooked . Going back on Saturday I hope!

30 minute ferry to Mui Wo- maybe skip it?
Dec 2018 • Solo
It’s one of the two Lantau destinations.
We thought we would avoid the crowds at Discovery Bay and go to a nice little rural beach. My take- too rural.
One nice photo then quick jump back on ferry to make it back to Central.

Serene village town with beautiful trails
Aug 2018 • Friends
We stayed in an airbnb and experienced the village atmostphere, their dim sum and restaurant dinner as well the the trails around it. It happened to be a wet weekend, which could explain the lack of tourist and hikers. We literally were the only ones on the trail that day.

Bus Station
Dec 2017 • Couples
Visited December 2017.
Took a return ferry to Mui Wo just for the ferry trip really.
Mui Wo has a bus station and a ferry pier. Use either to leave it as soon as possible.
Looked around the seafood restaurants - did not dare eat at any of them - they looked so terrible.
The town itself is run down - it has the worst McDonald's in the world - official.

Central Ferry Pier 6
May 2018 • Couples
It was Labour day so it was quite busy, I sat by some local women & enjoyed chatting with them during the ferry crossing. We got the ordinary ferry which took about an hour, it was a calm & very scenic journey. When we got off the ferry we turned right & walked through the market stalls, had beers, & strolled along the sea front watching the local fisher women. Finally we stopped for lunch & took in the wonderful sea views. I absolutely loved Mui Wo & was originally planning on staying there, how I wished that I hadn’t changed my mind as it was such a beautiful place.

Nice and quite place to relax close to HKG island
Nov 2017 • Friends
Nice and quiet place to relax next to HKG island. The ferry will take you there very easily from Central.
1. We had dinner at the Mui Wo cooked food market in the evening and this was a major disappointment. We paid HKG 400 for a seafood menu and paid extra for rice. The Seafood was not very tasty and there was a funny taste in the food. Will not do it again.
2. We found a good restaurant opposite the food market which was much better value and very tasty (Tak Chai Kee, Sun Lee Restaurant).
