Hong Kong's Beaches

Summer is the best season to beaches of Hong Kong. This tropical place is endowed with bright sunshine, soft beaches, limpid seawater and hot weather all the year round. Hong Kong has a long and winding coastline, which gives birth to dozens of bays and beaches. Sheltered by mountains, many of them are unruffled and free from strong wind. Nevertheless, the water quality has been slightly worsened due to fast urbanization. Presently, 40 bathing beaches are administrated by Hong Kong Leisure and Cultural Service Department. Eleven of them are located in Hong Kong Island, mainly in Hong Kong Southern District. Another twenty nine lie in New Territories and nearby islands, mainly in Sai Kung District, Tsuen Wan, Tuen Mun District, south of Lantau Island, Cheung Chau, Lamma Island. Most of them are well equipped with lifeguards, sharking nets and partially equipped with refreshment kiosks, public BBQ area, dressing room, shower room, etc.
