Kowloon Bay (Chinese: 九龍灣; Cantonese Yale: Gáulùngwāan) is a station on the Hong Kong MTR Kwun Tong Line. It is between Choi Hung station and Ngau Tau Kok station in Kowloon East. The station was opened in 1979.

Kowloon Bay is one of the five MTR stations on the Kwun Tong Line located above ground level, and one of three to be elevated and open-air (the other two being Ngau Tau Kok and Kwun Tong. Due to difficulties in installing platform screen doors (PSDs) in above ground stations, the MTR decided not to install PSDs in this station, instead installing automatic platform gates (APGs) on the station's platforms in 2011.

The headquarters of the MTR Corporation and the depot for the Kwun Tong Line are both located at this station. Also, located above the depot is Telford Gardens, the first residential property to be developed by the MTR Corporation.
