Deep Water Bay Beach
Set in a bay at the foot of Violet Hill, Deep Water Bay beach is one of the closest swimming beaches to the city. Not only this but the backdrop of verdant green hillsides feels far removed from the hustle and bustle of down town.
You will find that it is popular among locals with many prominent Chinese businessmen living here alongside Hong Kong celebrities. It has a Seaview Promenade that connects two beaches which you can walk or jog along and take in the stunning scenery.
There are plenty of facilities at Deep Water Bay beach including showers, changing rooms, and even a nine-hole golf course. You will also find beachside restaurants or you can use the barbeque grills to make your own picnic. There are lifeguards on duty in the summer and you should be mindful of the flags that they raise when conditions are unsafe.
Although this is one of the most beautiful beaches in Hong Kong, it does become very crowded because of its location. If you get here early, you can enjoy the stretches of sand that melt into the blue waters and the green hills behind the beach; it is hard to believe that you are anywhere near the skyscrapers of Hong Kong city.
You can take the bus to the Deep Water Bay bus stop so it is very easy to get to this beach.
