Best Beaches To Visit On Your Trip To Hong Kong


Surprised to hear of beaches in Hong Kong?

For most people the idea of a Hong Kong trip is to watch the famous parade and enjoy some of the fun rides at Disneyland. Or maybe go bargain hunting at Hong Kong’s lively street markets while tucking into local delicacies. If that’s what you thought too, get ready for a pleasant surprise.

Here we introduce you to some of Hong Kong’s best beaches so you can include your favourite while working out your trip itinerary.

Stanley Main Beach

Some of Hong Kong’s most popular beaches are located at Stanley, a village in the southern district of Hong Kong Island. You have a choice of visiting two main beaches at this laidback seaside village. One is the Stanley Main Beach which draws maximum visitors. This is also where some of Hong Kong’s cultural festivals are held particularly the famous Dragon Boat Festival. The other beach is St. Stephen’s Beach.

Stanley Main Beach is a must-visit. Enjoy the lovely beachfront dotted with many bars and restaurants. If you do venture out for a swim, rest assured there are shark nets and lifeguards to keep a protective watch.

Silvermine Bay Beach

Take a ferry from Hong Kong’s Central Pier to get to Lantau Island where you will find this wonderful piece of paradise. A quieter and more relaxed beach than the main beaches in Hong Kong, Lantau’s Silvermine Bay Beach is a great weekend getaway, especially if you are travelling with kids. You can enjoy a beach picnic while spending an idyllic time watching the waves and clear blue waters. If you’re really lucky you may even spot a rare pink dolphin!     

Be sure you make time to visit Lantau’s other famous attractions. Don’t miss admiring the towering Tian Tan Big Buddha and taking a gondola ride in the Ngong Ping Cable Car for some amazing aerial views of the island. 


Shek O Beach

If you are looking for a slightly offbeat yet easily accessible beach option, Shek O Beach is the one for you. You will find this charming beach at the quaint and colourful Shek O village located southeast of Hong Kong Island. There is the main beach and another back beach. For a quick bite step into one of the many interesting eateries in the village.

Cheung Chau Beaches

A half hour ferry ride from Hong Kong will take you to Cheung Chau Island where you will discover two gorgeous sandy beaches – Tung Wan which is bigger and the more go-to beach on the island, and Kwun Yam which is a smaller beach but gets perfect waves to make it a renowned windsurfing spot.

If you’re feeling adventurous take a shot at windsurfing or ride the waves on a raft. Rafts are available on rent.

You can spend a weekend exploring the beaches at Cheung Chau to escape the hustle bustle of the city. Or do a day-trip from Hong Kong if you like.

We are sure you can’t wait to experience these fabulous beaches. So grab a Hong Kong Travel Guide, check out the best flights and hotels, apply for your Hong Kong Visa and most important don’t forget Travel Insurance for Hong Kong. Buying overseas travel insurance is an essential safeguard. Just in case your trip is cancelled or important documents like your passport or even your luggage gets lost or misplaced, you won’t be stuck in a foreign country.
