Clear Water Bay, Hong Kong - Neighbourhood Watch & Luxury Home Features
Most people who visit Hong Kong or even local residents only know Hong Kong Island and maybe Kowloon relatively well, but what about the whole other large region of Hong Kong that we call “The New Territories”?
The New Territories is a hidden gem that not many people really talk about for a few reasons. First of all, it’s far from the city center where all the action takes place. Second, it’s seen as part of the Outlying Islands of Hong Kong where people don’t often venture out to. For those of you who do not know the New Territories, it is one of the three main regions of Hong Kong and makes up 86.2% of Hong Kong’s entire territory and homes around half of the population of Hong Kong. Many people view Hong Kong as the epitome of a concrete jungle, full of towering skyscrapers and nothing else. Actually, more than half of Hong Kong is beautiful nature with soaring mountains, fantastic hiking trails, long expanses of sandy beaches and glistening blue waters.
Clear Water Bay is a magnificently beautiful area in Hong Kong that houses a lot of luxury homes, which will be our focus in this article’s Neighbourhood Watch. For those of you who are seeking more serenity, tranquil lifestyle, natural surroundings and resort-vibes - Clear Water Bay may just be the location that will steal your heart away. Clear Water Bay is one of the most gorgeous bays on the eastern shore of Clear Water Bay Peninsula of Hong Kong, located within Clear Water Bay Country Park. There are two lovely beaches in Clear Water Bay, efficiently dubbed as “Clear Water Bay First Beach” and “Clear Water Bay Second Beach”. Clear Water Bay is known for its beaches and Hong Kong dwellers love to frequent this area to go on hikes, relax on the beaches and take their super-yachts out. The beaches here are even more beautiful during the summer and almost feels like you are taken away from Hong Kong to tropical paradise.

Expats especially find this area to be very desirable, even more so the ones with families.

Clear Water Bay is so interesting in the midst of Hong Kong real estate because of its relatively unspoiled areas with nature, hills, country parks and long stretches of stunning coastline.
