Known as 'Macua's countryside', Coloane Island is the only part of Macau that truly retains an essence of the past. The island is a tranquil place and perfect for those who wish to escape the chaotic city. Besides spectacular hills and beach-lined bays, Coloane Island is home to a myriad of historical attractions and recreational facilities. Combined, these unique amenities provide a favorite holiday destination for both the Macanese and foreigners.
Travelling from island to island is convenient in Macau, as bridges link all three islands. Coloane is connected with Taipa Island via Estrada do Istmo Bridge. However, recent land reclamation between the two islands has created a new town called Cotai which will be home to several casinos and resorts in the near future. Coloane Island is easily accessible and can be reached by bus 21A from A-Ma Temple or Bus 25 from Portas do Cerco.
