"He then led them out of the city over to Bethany. Raising his hands he blessed them, and while blessing them, took his leave, being carried up to heaven." Luke 24:50
Located in Hong Kong on the outlying island of Cheung Chau, Bethany's location is idyllic: surrounded by greenery, overlooking the sea and a few minutes from sandy beaches and peaceful walks around rocky coves. Yet the town with its restaurants, shops and other facilities is just nearby. Even the ferry ride helps in the winding down process, as the pressure of Hong Kong's city gives way to an island with no cars, pollution or sense of urgency. Cheung Chau is a fascinating place to explore. The island maintains a large fishing fleet with many fisher folk living traditional lifestyles aboard authentic wooden junks. Down by the harbour the atmosphere is bustling. Guests agree that the 20 minute walk up the hill from the ferry to our tranquil oasis is then definitely worth it.

Bethany is at the top of a modest hill called Fa Peng Knoll. Our address is 12/17A Fa Peng Road. Though Cheung Chau is a fairly small island, it is possible to get lost! We suggest that you download and print our directions page.

For example after receiving luggage at the airport it takes about 2 hours to be at Bethany.
