“Super clean beach”

Clear Water Bay Second Beach
Ranked #198 of 880 things to do in Hong Kong
Attraction details
Reviewed 8 January 2017 via mobile

Went there on a Sunday in Jan. Temperature 76 F.

We took MTR to diamond hill station, had lunch and bought fruits/nicknacks at the Hollywood plaza which is connected to the station. Then took double decker bus no.91 from bus station right in front of the plaza (on the ground level under the building structure). Bus took about 50 minutes and ended at the second beach. Bus every 20 minutes. There are not that many steps but it can be a bit of a challenge if you have a stroller (we have climbed a lot more steps than these with a double stroller with our two kids when they were little).

Beach was one of the cleanest we have been anywhere in the world. Has nice shady area for people who get sun burn like me and also sunny area for those who prefer sun. Saw 3 janitors going up and down the beach picking up trash and combing sand. There are bathrooms at the bus stop and on the beach.

Swimming area is roped up. Practically no waves and shallow. Very safe for kids. Saw only 2 speed boats floating in the bay.

This beach exceeded our expectation.

We love going to this beach as it is very clean with nice sand. Only comment with young children is that there is a long flight of stairs going down to the beach and you might need to carry them.

Clear water bay has got 2 beaches first and second. Second beach is quite clean and famous excursion among locals and tourists as well. Nice place for weekend fun and you can have a nice swim. View is amazing especially during sunset. Took some red wine and had a great evening. Showers are provided so you don't need to worry about anything.

A good spot for families.

People flock to the Clear Water Bay Second Beach when the weather warms up to soak up the sun. There is another good reason to visit the beach: you can see the beautiful moon rise around the Mid-Autumn Festival.

As the name both English and Chinese already indicated it is a beach of clear water, it is totally true! The size is not big but just good with enough facilities of in door and out door showers, toilets, changing rooms and first aid room.

Life guards are available on the beach towers and also patrolling on the sea protecting public's life.

You can see different kind fish at the beach during good weather and therefore catching fish or playing with sand are the major activities of families with children.

Suggest you bring your own food and beverage as the kiosk are serving very simple snacks like fish balls, fry or cup noodles at very high price. One small bottle of Tsing Dao beer costs HKD 25. Actually it would be more fun to bring your food and drink and enjoy a family gathering.

If you do not mind to walk up stairs, the number 1 beach is small but the kiosk is much much bigger with tables and chairs serving ham and eggs noodles with vegetables and very tasty spicy sauce. It is not expensive @HKD35 and it's worth of the taste + good and friendly service.

Lockers and BBQ are available at the corner of the No 1 beach on first come first serve basis.

It takes 10-15 minutes to walk down to the beach from the main road. The No 1 beach has less people as no parking lots available, it is 1/3 of the size of No 2 but I would prefer this one if your kids are big enough to walk up and down.

No need to fly to Phuket or Maldives, we also have beautiful beaches in Hong Kong.
