Silvermine Bay - Hong Kong
© Prosperity Horizons

Silvermine Bay is near the small town of Mui Wo on Lantau Island. The beach is long with golden sand, and it is pretty clean. It is easy to access from the town, and you can use it as a starting point for hikes, relax on the soft sand or rent kayaks or paddle boards to enjoy the water. You will find restaurants and other attractions nearby, including a waterfall and a cave.

Silvermine Cave was actually a silver mine at one time, which is how the spot got its name. Below the cave is a beautiful waterfall, where water flows down the rocks to a rock pool below. It is well worth seeing the waterfall and the cave, so be sure to set some time aside to hike. It’s an easy hike; in fact, it is one of the most accessible waterfalls in Hong Kong.

If you want to stay in the area, there are hotels and a resort right here. This is a great place to spend a few days taking in Silvermine Bay and the surrounds. Whether you want to relax on the beach in the warm golden sand or hike to see the local scenery, you can’t fail to be taken by this pretty beach nestled in between green hills.
