Send us an enquiry A favourite haunt of pirates until the early 20th Century, Colane Island represents the quiet side to Macau, it focal point a sleepy quaintly presented former fishing village with its pastel coloured shops, main square and Sam Seng Temple. Sandy beaches are also a feature of Coloane along with the tasty egg tarts straight from the oven of Lord Stow’s Bakery. This is Macau’s countryside with green hills and valleys, serene villages and lovely beaches. Coloane Village, like Taipa, has open-fronted shops, temples, China Coast houses, Portuguese municipal buildings and narrow streets lined by stuccoed arcades. A statue of the goddess, A-Ma, stands on the highest point of the island and can be seen from Lantau in Hong Kong. There are two river beaches of fine smooth sand - Hac-Sa and Cheoc Van - lapped by the warm waters of the Pearl River and both locals and visitors can bask in the outdoors before enjoying the great Portuguese, Chinese and Italian food in the many first-rate restaurants.
