If you want your own space in the sand at Golden Beach, you will need to arrive pretty early on the weekends. As one of Hong Kong’s premiere and most popular beaches, it gets busy quickly. If you can visit during the week, you will find fewer people.
Golden Beach is one of Hong Kong’s longest beaches, stretching around Castle Peak Bay. There is a backdrop greenery including palm trees and beautiful flowers for much of the length of the beach, although the view to the high-rise blocks will remind you that you are in Hong Kong. The beach itself is actually made up of imported sand and there are lots of facilities including changing rooms, rest rooms, and showers. To the rear of the beach is a promenade and there are plenty of places to shopand eat close by.
People love Golden Beach, although it isn’t as popular for swimming as many of Hong Kong’s other beaches. People sit on the beach, go for walks, and walk through the shops along the promenade before dining. Luckily, if you forget anything, you will be able to get what you need from one of the shops near the beach.
It is easy to get to this beach, as it is just a 30-minute taxi ride from Central. You can also take a bus trip that is a bit longer. If you want to stay, there is a hotel there, and it even has a water park.
