Big Wave Bay HK is the centre of the surfing scene, attracting crowds of up to 100 surfers as well as plenty of swimmers, since it is patrolled by lifeguards and shark-netted. Shifting peaks will break in any swell from N to E, and a strong NE typhoon will create some barrel sections providing it doesn’t get too near and close-out the bay over 6ft (2m). Dangers include rocks at either end, strong rips, pollution and too many bodies in the water!
