Tong Fuk has long been an under-the-radar staycation spot for Hongkongers looking for a radical change of pace. Places to stay are limited, so those in the know rent a village house. This is easy enough to do either through word-of-mouth, Airbnb, or by responding to an advert posted in one of the local shops.
If you’re ready to rough it a little there’s also the option to stay at The Cove Hostel, just two minutes’ walk from Tong Fuk Beach. Small and somewhat rundown, this hostel has no pretentions though the eight ensuite bedrooms all have free wi-fi, a kitchenette and a balcony. Guests are welcome to barbecue in the backyard.
The caravan camping ground near Tong Fuk Beach closed down not so long ago but you can rent a caravan at nearby Welcome Beach, which is a mere 15-minute walk away.
