Middle Bay Beach, Hong Kong Overview

The Middle Bay beach of Hong Kong is a serene and secluded stretch of golden yellow sand situated just a stone throw away from the more popular Repulse Bay Beach. This location of South Bay Road can also be described as a small inlet in between its grander cousins i.e. Repulse Bay Beach and the South Bay Beach, hence the name. The scenic Middle Bay Beach offers a natural view and hours of fun for the avid beach goers.

Due to its inaccessibility, the beach is the place to be for people hoping to spend some quiet time. The Middle Bay Beach is designated as the unofficial LGBTQ beach in Hong Kong at present. It is also a great place to relax in the sun while the kids are free to run around without having to encounter any dangers. The Environmental Protection Department of Hong Kong has pronounced the water at Middle Bay Beach as Grade I making it completely safe for swimming and bathing.
