Discovery Bay is a non-gazetted beach without lifeguard service.

Hong Kong has nearly 50 non-gazetted beaches that are not maintained by the government and, therefore, some may be unclean at times. They have no lifeguards on duty and are not equipped with shark nets.

Compared with last week’s markings, Cheung Chau Tung Wan Beach, Chung Hom Kok Beach, Trio Beach and Turtle Cove Beach have been upgraded from Grade 2 to Grade 1. 

Deep Water Bay Beach and Middle Bay Beach have been downgraded to Grade 2; and so have Big Wave Bay Beach, Butterfly Beach and Silver Mine Bay Beach to Grade 3.

“The changes are generally within the normal range of fluctuation of the bacteriological water quality of the beaches,” an EPD spokesman said.
    
Under the present system, beaches are classified into four grades according to the level of E. coli bacteria in the water from the five most recent samplings.

Still, the EPD spokesman reminded the public that water quality could also be temporarily affected by heavy rain. Bathers should avoid swimming at beaches for up to three days after a storm or heavy rainfall.
    
A summary of beach grades is published weekly before the weekend.  The latest beach grades based on the most current data may be obtained from the department's website on Beach Water Quality (www.epd.gov.hk/epd/beach) or the beach hotline, 2511 6666.
