Hike

Paved road to the Lions Park which is quite near to the road. Paved paths in the park. Trail to the beach is paved for the first section, then dirt track. Generally easy hike on well maintained trail. Some easy ascents/ descents on route to the beach.

You can decide to visit the rocky headland before enjoying the beach. Part of this trail is a little more difficult, but not too bad! Good views of Sai Kung Country Park

Trio Beach is a lovely fairly remote beach served by a small ferry. The beach has soft, gently sloping sand. The water is clean and there are changing and toilet facilities. So, bring your swimming gear if you would like a dip! There is a kiosk for drinks, but not always stocked – so do bring enough to drink. Bring some snacks as no food available
