An ideal family holiday destination, Coloane Island offers something for everyone. Whether you are a sports lover, or you are more at home with nature and culture, your appetite can be satiated with swimming, jogging, hiking, cycling, shopping, or just lying on the beach. Cycling around the island is often a favorite activity among visitors and the ride can be as slow-paced or pulse-pounding as you prefer. Coloane is also home to the two most renowned beaches in Macau; Cheoc Van and Hac Sa and these are both popular among families and groups of friends for a picnic during the weekend.

Cheoc Van Beach and Water Sports

Located on the south coast of the island, Cheoc Van Beach stretches 1.5 kilometres along Estrada de Cheoc Van. The beach is an ideal spot for those who wish to soak up a little sun while in Macau. An added bonus for families is that the sea is safe for swimming and in addition lifeguards are on duty during daytime hours. You will find local vendors that rent out water sports equipment, also cafés serving drinks and snacks. Public changing rooms and toilets are conveniently located on the beach as well.

Coloane Island features the first open golf course built on Macau and is highly recommended to anyone who loves the sport. The Macau Golf & Country Club features an 18-hole, par 71, professional course and a driving range.

Hac Sa Beach and Water Sports

Hac Sa Beach is located on the west of the island. The beach has a grey colour due to the mineral deposits beneath the seabed, but the water is remarkably clean and less exploited than the more famous beaches around the world. Hac Sa is the most popular beach among locals and tourists especially on weekends and holidays. The beach offers a variation of water sports and beach activities much like Cheoc Van Beach. However, there are more options in terms of dining with barbecue pits and a famous Macau restaurant, Fernando's.

Hiking and Cycling

A delight for those with an adventurous spirit, Coloane Island offers several hiking trails with various lengths and challenges. Two options are the Hac Sa Reservoir Circuit and Altinho de Ka Ho. Both trails are about 1.5 kilometers long, and loop around the reservoir to the northwest section of Hac Sa Beach.

For the more confident hiker, there is a three-kilometer trail near Ka Ho, called Northeast Coloane Trail. Experts and adventurers may want to try something a little more difficult and can do that on Coloane as well. The longest trail on the island starts from Seac Pai Van Park and is eight kilometres long. Cycling along these trails is also possible though it is best early in the morning or on weekdays

Located on the lively Cheoc Van Beach, Macau Horse Riding School provides well-trained and English-speaking instructors. For beginners, the trainers and instructors are very helpful and informative. The more experienced equestrian can request a faster horse for a ride with a quicker pace.
