Cheung Sha (Chinese: 長沙) is a rural area on the south coast of Lantau Island, New Territories, Hong Kong. Along the South Lantau Road, Cheung Sha is located between Tong Fuk (to the southwest) and San Shek Wan (to the northeast).
The most notable feature of the area is the Cheung Sha Beach, the longest beach in Hong Kong.
Cheung Sha is rural in character and largely undeveloped.
It is home to two small villages, namely Cheung Sha Ha Tsuen (長沙下村; 'Cheung Sha Lower Village') and Cheung Sha Sheung Tsuen (長沙上村; 'Cheung Sha Upper Village'). There are also a few low-density private housing developments. Cheung Sha Lower Village and Cheung Sha Upper Village are recognized villages under the New Territories Small House Policy.
The Cheung Sha Beach (長沙泳灘) is the longest beach in Hong Kong. It actually comprises two beaches separated by a rocky outcropping: Lower Cheung Sha Beach (下長沙泳灘) and Upper Cheung Sha Beach (上長沙泳灘). On its own, Upper Cheung Sha Beach is still the longest beach in Hong Kong.
In January 2016, the Lantau Development Advisory Committee (LanDAC) proposed to build spas, resort hotels, and a "wedding centre" at Cheung Sha. The suggestion was part of a wider proposal to undertake major development of Lantau Island, increasing its population from approximately 100,000 to one million.
