Best Beaches in Hong Kong

Posted on 07 June 2018

Hong Kong is best known for its skyline and the hustle and bustle of the city, but it also offers the escape of beach days. You'll feel worlds away from the city once you hit up any one of these beaches. While some are only a bus or cab ride away; others require you to get your sweat on. But we promise they’re all worth checking out.


Beaches on Hong Kong Island are much more accessible and easy to get to and can be reached by hopping on a bus or cab. Because of it's close proximity to the city, it makes them more crowded. 

Repulse Bay Beach

Repulse Bay is a popular choice for weekend beachgoers. The left-hand side of the beach is generally less busy, so arrive early for a good space on the sand. End the day with sunset cocktails and tacos at Limewood or head to Amalfitana for pizza and Aperols. 

Facilities: Restaurants, changing rooms, showers and public toilets

Deep Water Bay

Popular with the locals and early morning swimmers. If you fancy firing up a BBQ, there are over 30 barbeque pits to roast your marshmallows.

Facilities: Café, changing rooms, showers, public toilets and barbeque pits

Stanley Main Beach

Great for taking visiting guests to, as there's a market to pick up some souvenirs before chilling out on the sand. Stanley Main Beach is also great to cool down at after completing the Twin Peaks hike.

Facilities: Restaurants, changing rooms, showers, public toilets and barbecue pits

Shek O Back Beach

A five-minute walk from the main beach – Shek O Back Beach is dog-friendly and tends to be quieter as it's more hidden. Stop off at Ben’s Back Beach Bar and cool off with a cocktail.

Facilities: Café, changing rooms, showers, public toilets and barbeque pits

Big Wave Bay

Just down the road from Shek O is Big Wave Bay, Hong Kong’s only officially recognised surf beach. Frequented mainly by surfers for obvious reasons. Surfer or not, it’s a scenic beach, perfect for downing a couple Big Wave Bay beers on.

Facilities: Café, changing rooms, showers, public toilets and barbecue pits



Although further away from the city, these beaches are not to be missed. Venture to the New Territories and discover some of the most beautiful beaches of Hong Kong.

Tai Long Wan

Made up of four beaches along the bay – Sai Wan, Ham Tin Wan, Tai Wan and Tung Wan – Tai Long Wan is located on the east coast of the Sai Kung Peninsula and will have you feeling worlds away from our busy city streets. The four beaches are connected by short trails, so you can easily see more than one in a day. It's popular for camping with equipment available to rent from a small store at Ham Tin. 

Facilities: Small restaurant, public toilets, surf board hire

Hap Mun Bay

Also known as “Half Moon Bay” because of its crescent shape, Hap Mun Bay is a short sampan ride from Sai Kung. It's one of Hong Kong’s cleanest beaches with consistent ranks in high water quality rating.

Facilities: Café, changing rooms, showers, campsites, barbecue pits and public toilets

Long Ke Wan

Along with the beaches of Tai Long Wan, Long Ke Wan is the closest you'll get to white sand and crystal waters in Hong Kong. Facilities are limited, so be sure to bring water, food and anything you may need with you. 

Facilities: Dry pit toilets and a small campsite
