Cape D’Aguilar, Hong Kong

The cape is a ride on the No. 9 bus from Shau Kei Wan then a 1 hour walk from the Cape D’Aguilar bus stop – it doesn’t stop here on every trip so it is important to check before boarding.

On weekends you can buy some local dessert part of the way but they usually run out of my favourite tofu by the time I get there.

The walk reaches the cape at the, now unoccupied, research station. Along side is the skeleton of a Killer Whale “Ho Wai” who performed at Ocean Park – there are other theories about this skeleton also.

Either way ‘she’ is a bit worse for wear, has had a few repairs by the look of her bones, and looks like she will crumble to nothing before too long.

You will likely have to put up with insta-grammer’s leaping around in front of things having their photos taken if you go on a weekend.

The sea breezes can make this a very pleasant spot even at the height of summer – you just need to get close to the cape to feel the benefit.

I love rocks and water, some wood thrown in is a bonus.
