Golden Beach is the largest public beach in Tuen Mun with a total area of 78,500 m² and a length of 545 metres. It is the first artificial beach in Hong Kong. It is classified as a Grade 2 beach, meaning that the water quality is fair. Tropical trees, like coconut, and flowers of various species are planted on both sides of a 480-metre long promenade running parallel to the beach. Refreshment kiosks, a hotel and a shopping mall are to be found adjacent to the beach.
