Contrary to its image as a teeming urban metropolis, Hong Kong also boasts some lovely beaches. Middle Bay is the most popular gay beach, where oiled and muscled gay boys strut their stuff and catch the rays. Nudity is not permitted on the beach but it gets pretty cruisey, even if the action is fairly tame. Catch a bus to Repulse Bay, then walk ten minutes, to South Bay and look for the gay area in front of the 40-story Ruby Court Building.
Hung Shing Yeh Beach on Lamma Island is the most popular beach for the general public, with powdery fine sand and clear water. They have changing facilities, a barbecue area, and refreshment kiosk. Take the ferryboat from Central Pier to Yung Shue Wan, then it's a 20 minute walk to the beach - there are no buses or taxis.
On Lantau Island Cheung Sha Beach is more remote, and safer from intruders or police patrols, The best cruise area is between Upper and Lower Cheung Sha beaches, with nude sunbathers, gay couples, and busy evenings.
