Hac Sa Beach

Hac Sa Beach (Portuguese: Baía de Hác Sá) is a beach in Coloane, Macau, China. It is the largest natural beach in Macau.

Name[edit]

The name "Hac Sa", is a translation from Cantonese (Chinese: 黑沙; Cantonese Yale: Hāksā), literally means the famous black sand. However, to prevent the beach from disappearing due to erosion, Macau government has refilled the beach with yellow sand artificially. A stream that originates from Hac Sa Reservoir runs through the central area of the beach. [1]
