The Environmental Protection Department (EPD) released the latest grading of water quality last week, with the majority of beaches across Lantau receiving a rating of ‘good’, apart from Pui O Beach.
Pui O Beach was one of four beaches across Hong Kong that were downgraded from ‘good’ to ‘fair’ based on latest readings.
Silvermine Bay Beach was not included in the latest figures, as it is currently deemed ‘unclassified’ due to its temporary closure for the Signature Project Scheme (Islands District).
