HK beaches to reopen Nov 3 but with Covid-19 safety measures

28 October 2020

Repulse Bay beach will be among the 9 that will have lifeguards on duty

All of Hong Kong’s beaches managed by the Leisure and Cultural Services Department that had been closed for months will reopen on Nov 3, but subject to strict anti-virus measures.

The announcement was made as the city recorded no new local infections today, Oct 28, for the third straight day. The two new Covid-19 cases involved an Indonesian domestic worker who tested positive while in quarantine, and a returnee from India.

In a statement issued yesterday, Oct 27,  the LCSD said that the barbecue sites within the beaches will remain off-limits. Also, regulations governing group gathering and the wearing of mask to combat the spread of coronavirus will be strictly enforced.

There will also be limited lifeguard services at the reopened beaches. Those where lifeguards will be in place, which means swimming will be allowed, are as follows:


 * Deep Water Bay Beach, Clear Water Bay Second Beach, Silverstrand Beach and Golden Beach will provide lifeguard services daily from 8am to 5pm after reopening.

* Repulse Bay Beach, Middle Bay Beach, Stanley Main Beach, Big Wave Bay Beach and Silver Mine Bay Beach will reopen with lifeguard services from 8am to 5pm daily until Nov 30. Lifeguard services will be suspended from Dec 1, 2020 to Feb 28, 2021.

Despite being reopened, the remaining 29 beaches will have no lifeguards until Mar 31, 2021, so everyone is advised not to go into the water in these places. Picnics, sunbathing and other activities that do not involve swimming or gathering for a barbecue are allowed.

The red flag is hoisted to indicate that no lifeguard services are available, so the public must stay out of the water.


Beach users are also reminded to comply with the Prevention and Control of Disease (Prohibition on Group Gathering) Regulation, which limits group gathering to not more than 4 persons per group. Masks must be worn at all times, except when swimming.

To ensure appropriate distance between users of shower facilities, shower heads that are not inside individual cubicles will be open but will be at 1.5 meters apart.
