    We can use one of these for a quick beach landing.

    kind of defeats the point though if you live there

    You mean live there and have your own boat for transportation? Is there any boat parking near Central?

    If your rich enough to own the property + own a boat, off course you will have a boat captian/boat boy 24 hrs on call, you call them they come to pick up and drop off No need to be stuck to the pier.

    Sea Ranch is ideal and probably designed with hermits in mind.

    During the late 80s, I was often dragged to spend my precious summer holiday break at that place by my parents. As far as I could remember - transport was a pain in the arse, literally. Tiny boat, long journey across the sea and very little things to do for a young kid that was more accustomed to spending day-and-night with Nintendo games in front of my beloved TV. No shops back in those days, just loads of outdoor activities eg. swimming in the open sea, kayaking or hiking to Mui Wo to the east.

    During typhoon seasons, lives on that remote corner was horrific and a nightmare. Remember once when Typhoon Signal 8 was issued, everyone on Sea Ranch was to evacuate. Journey back to Central was horrendous, sea sick is an understatement in describing the extreme discomfort. I was soaked through from top to toe, shivering, wet and hungry with vomit smell on my belongings. When the boat finally docked in Central pier: no wind, no rain just a bit cloudy, nothing resemble a signal 8 warning situation.

    One positive thing I remember though was seeing the sun rise across the sea horizon with my Dad, priceless.

    Wonder if that's still the case and if so, why. Surely it would be safer to stay locked up indoors? Or is it because they don't have any emergency access there?

    The pedestrian walkway within Sea Ranch is a dedicated 'Open Space for use by the public', so they cannot shoo you away from there. The Lands Department document also remarks that it's accessible from the Sea Ranch Ferry Pier. Presumably that is public too then.
