The beach is very beautiful with all the big rocks in the sand, when the sun goes down it collors all the rocks in gold, it has a lot of plants in the back behind the sand, many shells to be found here. Unfortunately the water is not clean, due to the boat traffic, I suppose.

Being classified as one of the best beaches in Hong Kong, I was more than disappointed by that beach. I have never seen such a polluted beach in Hong Kong, you could not even make your way into the water due to all the plastic. Unbelievably that people let their little children play in the water... do not go!

Is a nice quiet beach with nice place to eat and drink. Easy to get there and there are activities available, however you find water dirty and lots of rubbish around now a days.... Used to be better ....

Lantau's south-facing beach is usually a visitor's sub-tropical delight but recent events have turned this beach into a dangerous and ugly eyesore. Huge amounts of plastic and medical waste had washed up on to the beach creating an apocalypse that we didn't expect to see in cosmopolitan Hong Kong. The former British colony has degenerated into using third-world practices by... More

Very pleasant beach, water was great, facilities were very clean and there's a public bus pick up just behind the bathhouses. Only small complaint was the trashy water, which is a problem all over HK.Lifeguards were on duty while we were there, but the surf is very gentle and pleasant (YRMV)

Cheung Sha Beach (aka Long Beach) offers a long expanse of sandy beach with a building on site that offers toilets, showers, and changing rooms, as well as a couple of very small shops that offer swim suits, beach toys, soft drinks and a few snacks. Not much parking area. Certainly looks like a place you'd want to come pretty... More

Coming from Queensland Australia it is hard to please me when it comes to beaches. I have been to other places throughout the world which have wowed me but Lower Cheung Beach failed to excite.
