Both Macau beaches are located in sleepy Coloane.
Macau Beaches: Cheoc Van Beach
Compared to Hac Sa Beach, Cheoc Van Beach is less frequently visited.
Normally there are more people swimming in public pool by the beach than at the beach itself.
If you fancy a stay near Cheoc Van Beach, the very good Pousada de Coloane is only footsteps away.
For a review of my stay there, please follow the link to Trip Report II.
Macau Beaches: Hac Sa Beach
Hac Sa Beach, or “Black Sand” in Chinese, is Macau’s main swimming destination, mainly because there are more things to do in the area.
Besides swimming, there are a few parks and playgrounds nearby, as well as restaurants, roadside barbecue stalls, and picnic areas.
While the water at both beaches is clean, it sometimes appears to be muddy brown, due to silt from the Pearl River.
Mu Yi and I spent an afternoon there during Trip Report II.
