You can take the MTR to Central Station or Hong Kong Station and walk towards the sea using the elevated walkways. The walkways will lead you to the piers which are numbered from 1 through 10.

The second is the fast ferry which takes around 35 minutes. Both arrive at the same pier on the island. During the day, ferries leave about every half an hour alternating between fast ferries and slow ferries. You can also book a private junk. The price for the junk is not a lot more than the Cheung Chau ferry price.
You can also reach Cheung Chau through Lantau. The same ferry company that runs from Hong Kong Island, operates a circular inter-island ferry route which takes you to Mui Wo on Lantau, Peng Chau and Cheung Chai.
