Big Wave Bay Beach - Ideal Beach for Surfing

Encased between tall mountains and thick jungles, this beach is one of the most peaceful beaches in Hong Kong.

The beach is equipped with showers, washrooms, changing rooms, barbecue areas and shark prevention nets.

Lifeguard services are available during summer season.
There are also some kiosks which serve snacks and drinks.

Besides, the rock carving located on the headland above the beach is one of the prehistoric rock carvings in Hong Kong.

Aside from sunbathing and swimming, other water sport activities such as surfing can also be enjoyed there.
The beach is called "Big Wave Bay" and it has another name called "Tai Long Wan".
However, the surf in the beach is only really up during typhoon season, but it is still an ideal location for surfing.

To get there, you can take the MTR to the Shau Kei Wan MTR Station and leave at Exit A3.
Then, take bus No.9 at Shau Kei Wan Bus Terminus and get off at Big Wave Bay Bus Stop.
