What to bring on a day or half day trip.
These are shoes that will get wet for sure! They are essential safety items here in Hong Kong due to the poor condition of the coastline, meaning the amount of trash that is in the water and distributed over the beaches. This includes broken bottles, needles, sharp plastic container and metal containers. ALL of these unnatural objects combined with barnacles, oysters etc make a nasty cocktail for your feet if they are uncovered.
The best wet shoes drin quickly, keep the sand out, stay on your feet when you are swimming and cover your toes incase you have to climb out over rocky headlands and shorelines.
NO FLIP FLOPS OR CROCS!
ON COLD DAYS
A light fleece top
helps to keep the chill away. Usually made of polyperlene, they wick moisture away from the skin, so even if you are wet, you will still feel the warmth of the fabric.
A wind breaker is a thin outer coat designed to resist wind chill and light rain, a lighter version of a jacket.
