There are only a few things in life that are better than the beach on a hot summer day. Taking the celebration of summer a notch higher is the beach party at Pak Sha Chau Island where the whole town is invited. You can take your own drinks and food and spend the entire day watching people shaking a leg over live music played by popular DJs, or better still you can take a splash in the water and swoon to the music with a beer in your hand, watching the sun set in the distance. Recipe for a blissful day, we would say!
