Nine beaches to reopen
Attention TV/radio announcers:

Please broadcast the following as soon as possible:

     Here is an item of interest to swimmers.

     The Leisure and Cultural Services Department (LCSD) announced today (October 12) that nine beaches will reopen on the following dates:

To reopen on October 13 (Saturday)

Tuen Mun District:
Butterfly Beach
Castle Peak Beach
Kadoorie Beach
Cafeteria Old Beach
Cafeteria New Beach
Golden Beach

Tsuen Wan District:
Hoi Mei Wan Beach
Approach Beach

To reopen on October 16 (Tuesday)

Southern District:
Repulse Bay Beach

     These beaches were temporarily closed earlier for clearance of debris and fallen trees as well as repairs of shark prevention nets and beach facilities after the typhoon.

     Meanwhile, other gazetted beaches in Southern, Tsuen Wan, Islands and Sai Kung Districts, including Deep Water Bay Beach which is normally open all year round, will remain closed until further notice as much longer time is needed for repairing beach facilities and damaged shark prevention nets or clearing debris due to the severe damage brought about by the typhoon earlier. Red flags have been hoisted at these beaches.

     The LCSD reminds members of the public not to go to the beaches that are temporarily closed, and not to swim or participate in other activities at those beaches for the sake of safety.
