Nim Wan (Chinese: 稔灣) was a bay between Tsang Tsui (Chinese: 曾咀) and Ha Pak Nai (Chinese: 下白坭) in Tuen Mun District, New Territories, Hong Kong.[1] It approaches Deep Bay with Shekou, Shenzhen at its opposite.

The bay was reclaimed to become a landfill site, "West New Territories Landfill" (Chinese: 新界西堆填區). The landfill site covers the area of 110 hectares. It can handle more than 6,500 tonnes of waste per day and is expected to be used for 25 years.[2][3]
