Sai Wan is an infrequently used but gazetted paragliding site open for use. Recently some members have rediscovered this site which is especially suitable for speedwings due to it's Launch to Landing glide just over 2:1.
Compared with the nearby Long Kee Sai Wan offers a higher launch (220m/730ft) and works in more northerly winds than Long Kee.
與附近的浪茄灣相比，西灣具有更高的起飛場（220m / 730ft），並且偏北風時場地可飛性更大。
Launch area is a small spur 220m/730ft AMSL, slightly towards the eastern face from the nose of the ridge.
起飛地點是一個位於220m / 730ft AMSL的山崚，從山脊的頂部向東面一點。
The launch area forms a rotor during northerly winds due to terrain and vegetation. Do not use the launch area during northerly winds.
The main LZ is the Sai Wan Tsuen beach. Below shows full DBF circuit approach paths (green, recommended) and direct over-river (pink) approach paths. In all cases be aware of the power lines. Look out and perform your landing away from swimmer and spectator on the beach.
Look out and perform your landing away from swimmer and spectator on the beach.
Winds to look for on the HKO website are Tate's Cairn and Waglan with force 2-4 Easterly for ridge lift, or weaker conditions for sled runs. Never takeoff a paraglider in force 5 and above wind condition.
A power line spans across the whole valley. You must know where you are in relation to the power lines if flying low near the rivers or the point separating the two beaches.
Access to the site is via the 29R Village Bus to Sai Wan Pavilion from Sai Kung, then following the uphill trail.
Car: It is possible to borrow an HKPA Sai Kung Park permit. See the details in the member's section.
