Clam bake

The sun is out and the temperatures are soaring again – which means it's time for the clam diggers to come out in full force.

The muddy, sandy sea bed of Silvermine Bay is home to thousands of these tiny creatures, which like to hide just beneath the surface. The old-timers know exactly just how to ply a rake to get enough for a family meal.

Those who want to try their hand at it can rent the equipment at one of the stalls by the beach.

Or you can do what most locals do – order some at Wah Kee Seafood Restaurant. Clams with black bean sauce... yums!
