Sai Kung East Country Park has the largest number of bays and coves. Sai Wan, one of the coves within its boundaries, is the most famous beach in Hong Kong. Together with Ham Tin, Tai Long and Tung Wan, it makes up Tai Long Wan, the jewel of Sai Kung's idyllic coastline. This remote seaside haven draws visitors from near and far. Some hike across the hills is in her bosom while the others come by sea.

Sai Wan is blessed with ideal landscape. Divided into two beaches, it is fed by a flowing stream at both ends. The south bay is a sheltered inlet that remains calm even in summer when the south wind blows. It is a perfect anchorage for pleasure boats. The north bay boasts a wide sandy beach with rushing swells. Inland, behind the beaches, you find the outlet of Sheung Luk Stream. Four Pools, a series of midstream plunge pools, is a well known tourist attraction.

The arch of Tai Long Wan is home to many flora species of special scientific interest, including Dense-flowered Geodorum (Geodorum densiflorum), a plant that can adapt to high-salinity sandy bottom habitats, and the rare Glehnia littoralis. To preserve these natural assets, Tai Long Wan has been declared a Site of Special Scientific Interest.
