Owner description: Perfectly framed by mountains and surrounded by the beautiful South China Sea, Discovery Bay, a serene resort development on the northeastern coast of Lantau Island, is a peaceful oasis away from hectic Hong Kong. The destination offers a wide selection of dining options and leisure activities. D'Deck, the renowned oceanfront alfresco dining hotspot boasts 20 restaurants with most commanding spectacular views of the sea and Disneyland fireworks. The 400-metre-long beach, hiking and walking trails, waterfront boardwalk, horse-drawn carriage, and the deluxe resort hotel Auberge Discovery Bay Hong Kong, present a total resort experience for leisure and getaway, yet it is just a step away from downtown Central, the Hong Kong International Airport, nearby attractions such as Hong Kong Disneyland, Ngong Ping 360, Po Lin Monastery, Giant Buddha and Wisdom Path. Take the ferry from Central Pier 3, or shuttle bus from the Airport, Tung Chung and Sunny Bay MTR stations.

“A very quiet clean place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 13, 2014

If want to escape the hustle and bustle of the busy downtown of Hong Kong then here is the place to go! It is very quiet and peaceful, most people there are foreigners so it kinda seemed liked another place! Lots of dogs around and there is a man-made beach, a nice bunch of restaurants and lots of road to go for hiking and cycling.

“Beach fun”

Take the ferry from Central to Discovery bay and you are transported from City of glass to beach fun. Nice sandy stretch of beach for a nice walk or chill in any if the numerous bar for a refreshing break.

“'DB' - Dogs and Babies”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 25, 2014

Discovery Bay is a very pleasant and attractive community based on Lantau island which is accessible by 30 minute ferry from Central Ferry pier 3.

It offers a pretty beach, a number of shops and vast array of cafes/restaurants to eat in.

DB is a pleasant place to live if you have young children or dogs and need a very safe, open and friendly environment but you wouldn't especially look to visit for a day trip unless you intend to sit on the beach the whole time.

Sadly, we visited on a monster hangover and found the incessant screeming and running around of little kids a bit too much for our delicate heads and it somewhat ruined the visit. So... visit for the beach and restaurants but prepare for noise.

“Soulless”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 24, 2014 via mobile

If you are into culture of any sort then this is not the place for you!! It is absolutely soulless and boring except if passing through to somewhere else on Lantau.

Maybe OK for those with a family who want sun and surf etcbut otherwise give it a miss or visit purely for the sake of interest.

“Dinner @ D'Deck”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 30, 2014

Perfect place off the main island, away from the hustle and bustle of city life. Its a good place for those looking to bathe in the sun and do some light activities at the beach there. I forgot to bring my frisbee along, otherwise I could have spend a good hour playing catch! After that, head down to D'Deck for a wonder dinner. Well its pretty romantic style with candles and the setting in the open. I chose the Berliner (German cuisine) and spent about 30 bucks for a good German super sized meal and a pint of german beer. Really good food and its recommended to go somewhere when the weather is cool, I went around late October so the cold breeze was just right. Not too cold. Oh Discovery Bay has really nice villas and it seems really nice (but expensive) to live there.
