Clear Water Bay First Beach - Hong Kong
© Earth100

The Clear Water Bay is a peninsula on the southeastern tip of the New Territories. Mostly given over to a country park, it is an ideal spot for anyone looking to quickly get away from the city and enjoy the serenity and beauty of nature.

Clear Water Bay First Beach is the smaller of two beaches joined together by a path. Backed by the trees of the park, the beach is made up of coarse sand and you will descend a large flight of steps to reach it. There are summer lifeguards and shark nets so the beach is safe for swimming. They have changing rooms, showers, toilets and barbeque areas. This beach is a little more secluded than the neighbouring Second Beach, which has more activities.

Clear Water Bay Country Park is unspoiled with forested hills and a rugged coastline. You will enjoy the picturesque scenery around you as you sit on the beach and relax. Because you can choose between two different beaches, you can find the experience that you are looking for.

You can easily move between the two beaches over the trail and you will find plenty to do when you aren’t at the beach. There is a skatepark, horse stables, and hiking trails and you will have no trouble finding restaurants where you can eat.
