It’s Friday, and ahead lies three free nights and two fun filled days where your schedule is meeting and commitment-free and the exhilarating possibilities are endless… No plans? No problem. Whether you’re a junk boat junkie, a chilled out beach bum, or a smoldering sun goddess, we have the perfect itinerary for you…
For the Beach Boys
Your Destination: Mavericks
After a hard day’s beach bumming, hit up Chef Austin’s latest opening, a chic surfside shack with menus tacked to reclaimed skateboards calling out to sunbaked,
rumbling stomachs with hunger-busting tacos, ‘fush & chups’ and deliciously naughty rum-spiked s’mores. (Pui O Beach, Lantau, +852 5402 4154)
Your Transportation: Jungle Jane
A 69-foot super motorboat with enough horsepower to take you to unchartered marine destinations, a giant 22-foot wide platform for sunbathing or dance parties (or both!), a Marine Fusion 8-speaker sound system, floating lounges, bean bags, sun mats, and space for 48 of your crew.
