In view of the latest COVID-19 situation, the Leisure & Cultural Services Department today announced that all gazetted beaches under the department will reopen on November 3.
Deep Water Bay, Clear Water Bay Second, Silverstrand and Golden beaches will provide lifeguard services daily from 8am to 5pm after reopening until March.
Repulse Bay, Middle Bay, Stanley Main, Big Wave Bay and Silver Mine Bay beaches will reopen with lifeguard services from 8am to 5pm daily until November 30.
Lifeguard services at the remaining 29 beaches will be suspended after reopening until March 31, 2021.
To ensure an appropriate distance between users of shower facilities and shower heads which are not within individual cubicles, such showers will be open but spaced at 1.5 metres apart.
The department emphasised that it will also step up cleaning work at the reopened beach facilities.
Barbecue sites within gazetted beaches will remain closed.
