Silverstrand Beach - A Small Beach in Sai Kung, Hong Kong

Silverstrand Beach - Sai Kung, Hong KongSilverstrand Beach is small narrow beach located in the Clear Water Bay Peninsula in Sai Kung, Hong Kong. It is a gazetted beach managed by the Leisure and Cultural Services Department and has wide range of facilities available, including ample parking, refreshment kiosks, barbecue pits, changing rooms,  showers and shark nets. Life guards are also on duty and first aid services are also available.

As of January 2013, the Environmental Protection Department has rated the water quality of Silverstrand Beach as Grade 1 or "Good", an upgrade from its previous Grade 2 status.

Despite several fatal shark attacks reported at the Silverstrand Beach in the 1990s, the beach remains a popular destination among locals and tourists. It is always crowded on weekends, especially during the summer months. The multi-million dollar shark nets that were installed in Silverstrand and other gazzeted beaches proved to be effective in keeping swimmers safe from the sharks.

Signs were also set up in various parts of the beach warning visitors to swim in caution. Visitors are also advised to stay out of the water when the shark warning flag and red flag (warning against dangerous water conditions such as big waves or poor water quality) are hoisted.

Silvertrand Beach can be reached by taking the MTR to Choi Hung, then Bus 92 or a taxi to Silverstrand.
