    Even though it seems far from the city center, this beach is easily accessible as there’s lots of buses going to it. We decided to take the mtr to Ocean Park and walk by the coastal road pass Deep Water Bay before we reach Repulse Bay. It’s a very easy beautiful walk that takes around an hour or so. Repulse Bay is located quite urban and yet has that secluded beach feel. It has a maintained beach toilet for cleaning up after your swim in the beach. There’s restaurants by the beach and an arcade where you can buy water or sundries to eat by the beach. It’s family friendly too.

    While traveling this side of the Island, we made a little halt there, which I liked. It was seen on the same voyage as Stanley and Repulse Bay. It worked nicely as a destination as well. It was serene, charming, barely commercial, and incredibly picturesque.

    One of the four beaches that you can visit as part of the Tai Long Wan Hiking Trail in the Sai Kung East Country Park is the Tung Wan Beach, which is the fourth if starting from your hike from the trailhead at the Sai Wan Pavilion.

    Starting with (1) Sai Wan Beach, (2) Ham Tin Beach and (3) Tai Wan Beach, you finally reach (4) Tung Wan Beach. The trail between the first three beaches is well trafficked, wide and easy to follow. However, past Tai Wan Beach, it eventually becomes more natural, unmarked and slightly overtaken by vegetation. Yet, it is still easy to follow, you can't get lost, eventually making your way to a small cliffside that you have to descend before crossing over a cluster of boulders and finally reaching the beach.

    Tung Wan is much smaller than its three sister beaches but is a neat place to find. There is a good chance you'll have the beach all to yourself. If not, there won't likely be more than a few others there, even on busy weekends when small crowds descend upon the larger and more convenient to visit beaches you will have already passed.

    The beach is photogenic with nice sand and blue waters. It is backed by hilly environs and flanked by rocky shores. There is a small freshwater pool that breaks the sand in half. Once here, you are about as isolated from the mass crowds of Hong Kong as you can find.

    Note: there are no public facilities at Tung Wan Beach. Do make sure to stock up on drinks or snacks at the shops at San Wan or Ham Tin Beaches prior to continuing onward to this location.

    I came here via a short easy scenic hike from Siu Sai Wan. The last part of our hike was the descent to Big Wave Bay. It was really scenic and beautiful to see the ocean and the bay together with surfers trying to catch a wave. The sand in the beach was very nice and the beach was not crowded on a weekday. There were less than 15 surfers and swimmers. It’s not a huge bay but it’s good enough. There are a few local cafes and sundry shops open. There’s taxis and buses to take you to the city.

    There are two sister beaches in Clear Water just south of Tai Au Mun village. Beach 2 is the famous beach with fine sand, three lifeguard stations and good facilities with toilets, changing rooms and refreshment kiosk. There is a shark prevention net spanning a few hundred metres, providing loads of swimming area for beachgoers.

    Beach 1 is a small, surplus beach just a couple hundred metres northeast of Beach 2. It is much smaller and has quite a lot of big pebbles in places. Otherwise, it is noticeably quieter and with basic facilities as well.

    Most convenient transportation to Clearwater Bay Beach 2 is by way of KMB bus route 91 from Diamond Hill Bus Terminus & MTR Station, Minibus 103 to/from Tseung Kwan O Bus Terminus & MTR Station or Minibus 16 to/from Po Lam.

    There are a handful of public beaches on the southern shores of Lantau Island including the Lower and Upper Cheung Sha Beaches. These provide a combined to form a 3km long stretch of beachfront and one of Hong Kong's cleanest and most beautiful beach scenes.

    The beaches are both fairly narrow throughout, backed by lush trees and the tall Lantau Peak (934m) just behind. They are accessible by way of taxi and buses which run from Tung Chung and Mui Wo along the S. Lantau Road. There are expected facilities including changing stations, outdoor showers, public toilets, lifeguard stations (April to Oct) as well as a few holiday parks and basic accommodations as well.

    At the eastern end of Lower Cheung Sha Beach, there are a few shops and beachside restaurants and bars as well as sports activity centre. Whereas the Upper Cheung Sha Beach is more of a long unbroken stretch of beachfront where you will find people swimming, jogging on the shorefront and often a few fisherman trying their luck.

    Because the beaches are fairly remote, neither sees anywhere near the crowds that you find at other more easily accessible beaches in Hong Kong. Although they do see larger numbers than fellow Lantau beach called Tong Fuk further to the west.

    Note: Unfortunately, public transportation is a bit limited in this area of Lantau Island so leaving can require a bit of patience especially on weekends and public holidays when the high use buses making their way back to Tung Chung and Mui Wo are often full up when they pass by. As such, be prepared to take a blue (Lantau) taxi if you don't want to wait for available bus ride.

    Hap Mun Bay (Half Moon Bay) Beach is one of the two notable beaches on Sharp Island in the Kiu Tsui Country Park of Sai Kung. It is located on the south end of the island and is accessible by way of frequent sampan and kaito service from Sai Kung or by way of a hiking trail from the north of the island.

    The bay is shaped a bit like a half moon, which you can make out clearly from the higher elevation points along theSharp Island trail. The beach itself is usually very clean, has fine sand and water quality about as good as you will find around Hong Kong. Hence, this is a very popular beach for Hongkongers particularly in weekends and public holidays. The beach area is rather small, which results in very crowded conditions here during warmer months of the year.

    There are changing rooms, showers, public toilets, in season rafts (April to October), lifeguards, BBQ pits, refreshment kiosk that are open during normal times. Unfortunately, our beaches are closed down during the pandemic including Hap Mun Beach. However, they should open up someone later this year.

    Note: Sampan and kaito service to Hap Mun Beach (HK$40 return ticket) takes around 15-20 minutes each way. You can also take similar boat service to the main Sharp Island pier on the north end of the island (HK$30 return ticket) and then hike the 1.5 km trail to Hap Mun Beach.

    It might not be the easiest beach to get to, but it's only about 5 mins taxi from repulse bay, and besides, Hong Kong is quite small, so nowhere is ever quite far.

    Silky sand, blue water, this is like a private beach on average weekday. It's got changing/shower facilities, and even an alfresco cafe. Price on a high side, but quality of food is not bad.

    Good place to have a getaway and quick escape from the city.

    Nice quiet beach, the water was nice, when it rained it stopped very fast, we didn't even come out of the water :) Loved that there was not many people on the beach, sometimes it was just us.

    We saw it while we were going to Stanley via Tai Tam in # 14 Bus
    It’s a small beach but very clean and beautiful
    Not so steep and rough.
    Got few BBQ pits for some extra fun.
    On the mountains you can see the best and one of the most expensive housing in the HK. More like Beverly hills 😊😊
    I’m sure you will love this place

    We passed the beach on our way to the cemetry in Stanley and decided to have a closer look. We ended up on this beach for the rest of the afternoon and had a great time. The changingrooms, toilets and showers were very clean. There are even lifeguards on duty and next doors you can rent cayaks and maybe even sailing boats. There is a small place for refreshments. We had a great & relaxed afternoon.

    We made plans to go to the Golden Beach because a friend said she witnessed a beautiful sunset on the beach previously. In all our eagerness we only checked that it wasn't forecasted to rain but didn't think twice about the temperature which turned out to be 34 degrees! We arrived a little before 5pm and the sun didn't start setting till 7.07pm so we spent over 2 hours roasting! The spot we choose faced the airport and it was nice seeing planes taking off and although there was a huge overcast at 7pm and we didn't actually get to see a spectacular sunset we all had an enjoyable day at the beach.

    There are two sections (Upper and Lower) of the Cheung Sha Beach on the southern shores of Lantau Island. The Lower section is furthest east while the much longer and more remote stretch to the west is referred to as the Upper Beach. Combined they form nearly 3km of beachfront backed by lush green trees and Lantau Peak (934m) towering above in the background. This is HK's longest and probably cleanest beach. It is a really nice place to experience when seeking uncrowded fun in the sun.

    You can reach the two Cheung Sha Beaches by way of taxi or public bus from Tung Chung and Mui Wo along the S. Lantau Road. Both have expected facilities including changing stations, outdoor showers, public toilets, lifeguard stations (April to Oct). A sports activity centre as well as a few shops and beachfront restaurants can be found at the eastern end on Lower Cheung Sha Beach. Where as Upper Cheung Sha Beach is more of a long and narrow beach for those seeking a more remote space on the beach. There is quality sand throughout and several dedicated swimming areas. Joggers and fisherman can be found dotting the beach as well.

    Because the Cheung Sha Beaches are fairly remote, neither sees anywhere near the crowds that you find at the more easily accessible beaches in Hong Kong. For an even less crowded experience, you can go even further west to Tong Fuk Beach. It is just as nice but sees even fewer numbers than the two Chueng Sha Beaches.

    Note: Unfortunately, public transportation is limited in this area of Lantau Island so leaving can require a bit of patience especially on weekends and public holidays when many others may be waiting for rides back to Tung Chung and Mui Wo. Plus you are competing for bus space with those trying to get back to the city from Tai O and Ngong Ping Village. As such, consider taking a blue (Lantau) taxi on the way out if buses passing by appear to be overly full up.

    ...as much as you can whilst relaxing here and you will be treated to views of the sea, part of Lamma’s green coast and further out into the bay if you peer straight ahead. The water is relatively clean and the facilities for changing and showering are excellent. There are also lots places to eat and drink right near the beach at the back and further along the path towards town. Oh, and what’s to the right you ask? A massive power station. But even with that eyesore to end them all, it’s still a lovely, popular beach.

    This was my favourite part of our day on Peng Chau Island. It is an easy and very scenic walking trail that stretches along the coastline on the north part of the island.
    Highlights are the sweeping coastal views, a dramatic rock formation known as Old Fisherman’s Rock and several small but lovely beaches with clear water and clean sand. For much of the walk, you look across the water at Disneyland and the Tsing Ma Bridge.
    The path is a combination of paving and boardwalk. There are gentle rises but, for the most part, it is a level stroll. Even small children with little legs will manage it easily. It ends at Old Fisherman’s Rock. Make sure you continue to this point because there is a great lookout point and pavilion sitting here with views over to Hong Kong Island and Kowloon. From here, you can either return the same way or continue on to join the much longer Family Trail which loops around the whole island in a 7km track.
    Take water, sunscreen and hats with you as there is no opportunity to buy anything along the path.
    Getting There – As you get off the ferry, turn left and follow the harbour around to Tai Lei island. There is a clear sign marking the start of the trail near the island and the Seven Sisters temple. Even if you intend to continue on and do the Family Trail, I’d recommend starting at the Peng Yu Path from this point. We did the walk in reverse starting from Finger Hill via Tung Wan beach and the signs were not as clear in this direction, making it tricker to find our way.
