If you on a trip to Macau with your family, the following places may be worth checking out.

1.      Hac-Sa Beach

Have you seen a black sand beach? Hac-Sa (meaning black sand) Beach is one of those. It is Macau’s largest natural beach and is gorgeous. A lot of pine trees are planted on the embankment.

It is said that the black sand is due to the marine environment which enables the formation of a black particular due to a secondary mineral, glauconite. The glauconite, affected by ocean currents, was transported to the shore and then carried by the wind and waves to the beach, so that the original white and bright sandy beach was changed into the fascinating mystery of the black sand beach. It is an ideal place for swimming. Lots of families love it and children like swimming or boating there. The sand is really dark, but it is completely safe.

2.      Westin Hotel and Resort

It is located in Coloane near Hac-Sa beach. In fair weather you can sit outside on the comfortable couches or armchairs, overlooking a lawn where your kids can romp around to their hearts’ content. There is a fenced-off playground. There is also an outdoor pool which you can pay to use even if you are not a hotel guest. A delightful tea buffet is served on Sundays from 3 pm to 5:30 pm.

3.      Macau Tower

What you do at the Macau Tower totally depends on age. Teens may get a thrill from attempting the world’s highest bungee jump. Or, there is no age restriction for those who would like to strap in do the sky walk like these people above. As long as you fit in the harness, it doesn’t matter how old you are! There’s no handrail and the edge is only 1.8 meters wide. The tower is 61 stories tall. The adventure offerings are run by AJ Hacket, and have a flawless safety record.

But for the less daring, there’s indoor and outdoor observation decks and a restaurant that rotates 360 degrees for panoramic views of the surrounding area. The buffet here is excellent with Portuguese and international favorites. A convention space, shopping and even a movie theatre inside the tower also live inside the tower. It’s huge.

4.      Macau Science Center

Macau Science Center is a place you should not miss when visiting Macau, especially if you have children. It is a good place for children to learn and to play, suitable for kids aged three to twelve.

There are lots of activities for kids to spend at least half a day on. It stimulates their brains to think and helps children to learn. You will find a wide range of exhibitions and games including cooking, sports, astrology, weather and conservation. There are plenty of hands-on activities and children can do role playing in a well decorated room like a construction site. Even the adults would like to take part in it.

5.      A-Ma Temple

The A-Ma Temple is the oldest temple in Macau, built in 1488 during the Ming Dynasty. The temple is dedicated to Mazu, the Sea Goddess who protects the fishermen in Macau. The atmosphere is amazing.
