It was a close call, but the people’s choice for best beach is Clearwater Bay Second Beach!
A lot easier to get to than the runner up (and last year’s winner) Tai Long Wan, visit on any sunny Sunday to see it brings in the numbers.
The largest of Clearwater Bay’s two beaches has plenty of space for stretching out a towel or digging a hole (save the ballgames for winter, when the lifeguards aren’t looking). Favoured for its convenience and facilities, including a lifeguard service, shark nets, diving platforms, beach umbrella rental and a shop selling cold drinks and ice creams, it’s a popular option for families.
There’s a carpark, but it fills up quickly on hot weekends: we recommend a cab or bus 91 from Clearwater Bay Road. To beat the crowds, go mid-week or in early morning as the sun comes up over the South China Sea.
