Cape Collison Guide

Getting There 

From Chai Wan MTR, take a taxi towards the cemeteries and the male correctional facility.

See a beta photo for the sign in English and Chinese to show your driver. When you pass the cemetery and begin to head downhill, there is a small pullout on the right. Just past the pullout is a block wall on the right. Hop the fence to a concrete drainage ditch, leading to concrete stairs. At the base of the stairs are the ruins of two WWII bunkers. Bunker Wall is immediately on your left, and The Beach is a few minutes further to the left, past the tidal pool. For the Zawn, turn right at the bunkers. An short but exposed scramble or a short rappel leads into the Zawn.

The Beach and Bunker Wall receive morning sun and afternoon shade. You can chase the sun, or shade, all day at the Zawn. Routes at the Zawn can seep for several days after a heavy rain. Access to the Beach is tide dependent.
