Discovery Bay (DB, Chinese: 愉景灣) is a mixed, primarily residential, development consisting of upmarket residential development and private and public recreational facilities in Hong Kong. It is situated on the north-eastern coast of Lantau Island. There are around 18,000 residents with a sizeable community of expatriates. DB is located 2 km west of Hong Kong Disneyland Resort and approximately 12 km west from the nearest point on Hong Kong Island.
DB currently consists of 14 residential development phases with properties ranging from garden houses to high-rise towers of up to 24 storeys. The development also features a 400-metre-long privately owned beach (accessible to the public but no lifeguards present), four private membership clubs including a golf club and a marina club and a public park (Siena Central Park).
Where to eat in Discovery Bay
One of the most common grumbles from Discovery Bay residents is that they are often held ransom to inflated prices and it’s a grumble that certainly holds true in the restaurants out here. Several are copy cat restaurants from Central but their prices are higher here – mostly because the locals can afford to dig a little deeper.
Luckily, most of the dining options outside the exclusive clubs are mid-range and the majority serve western food. This is not the best place to taste the local Cantonese cuisine.
