Hi there,

Would somebody please highlight where exactly is Oyster Bay Beach as there are quite a few locations with sandy beaches in the photo.  Anyway, according to GeoInfo Maps the approximate locate where fishing junks are seen in the photo above are called Tsau Wan (酒灣).  Modern day Tsau Wan is the small bay behind the causeway.

Also, the Kowloon side of Lei Yue Mun had been well known for granite quarries and stone works.

Best Regards,

T

HI T - it's the beach on the extreme right in the middle of the photo, adjacent to the rocks

Hi there,

Thanks for the update.  I have been to the neighbourhood a few years ago.   It is a bit litterred and part of the bay had a few buildings on it, right along the high water marks.  As far as I could recall the part close to the navigation beacon would be under water at high tide.

Here's two photos I took:

 Best Regards,
