Middle Bay Beach

Middle Bay Beach - Hong Kong
© T1NH0

Located on a small bay next to the popular Repulse Bay Beach, you will find Middle Bay Beach, the most popular (unofficial) gay/LGBT beach in Hong Kong for tourists as well as locals. This is a fairly small and cosy stretch of sand with tree covered cliffs sheltering the cove. This is a place to relax and offers more privacy than some of the busier beaches nearby.

There are plenty of facilities here including showers, food stands, barbeque pits, toilets, and paddleboard rentals. Despite its proximity to some of Hong Kong’s busiest beaches it is a fairly secluded spot and during the week, you might even have the place to yourself.

Middle Bay is fairly sheltered and the sea is generally calm. The water quality is rated high although it can be cloudy during typhoon season in July or August. There is an enclosed swimming area where you can swim. 

Getting to Middle Bay is not difficult - you can walk or take a taxi round from Repulse Bay. It is relatively empty during the week and you will find mostly small groups and couples enjoying quiet time on the golden sands nestled in this beautiful location.
