Lots of nice beaches to enjoy in Hong Kong. One nice option is you’re visiting the Stanley area in southern Hong Kong island is St. Stephen’s Beach, about 10 minutes walk from the more crowded main Stanley beach. It offers clear sand, decent water, and the charming Stanley scenery and central HK island in the background.
