The Beach & Piazza
Here is part three of our recent 3-day weekend: the beach & Piazza! Hong Kong has a lot of coastline (733 km), but not many long beaches. A lot of the coastline is rock, or harbour, and often has very little sand. Many of the beaches are small coves, which don't lend themselves to walking along for hours as we Brits are used to. The beach at the Gold Coast was the longest beach I've seen here to date!

Another thing that made The Gold Coast unique was the piazza just around the corner from the hotel. We discovered it on our first night as we were wandering around the beautiful gardens. Behind the hotel is also the Gold Coast Yacht and Country Club.
