East Coast Park

East Coast Park Promenade

The pier and promenade of East Coast Park in Causeway Bay are among the most beautiful spots overlooking the Hong Kong skyline.

Choose the best accommodation with a view of Hong Kong

The 100-metre-long pier has many benches and at the end of it is a ventilation shaft from a road tunnel, which is a work of art and a photogenic spot in itself.

Access to the pier is available 24/7 and is free of charge.

360° view of Victoria Harbour

Thanks to the outcropping in the form of a pier, you can enjoy a great and virtually 360° view of the entire bay.

To the left you'll see the breathtaking skyline of central Hong Kong with its dozens of skyscrapers, while to the right the high-rises of Kowloon rise skyward.

Looking eastwards on the other side, you'll see the tall apartment blocks of Kowloon City and Kai Tak.

Enjoy the Symphony of Lights

East Coast Park is, in our opinion, the best place to watch Hong Kong's famous Symphony of Lights.

While there are no speakers installed with accompanying music, you can listen to it on your phone by downloading the current music track via the "A Symphony of Lights" mobile app (Google Play / App Store).

Unlike the promenades of Tsim Sha Tsui or Bauhinia Square, from here you can see all the skyscrapers involved in the light show, albeit from a greater distance.

How to get there?

The nearest metro station is Fortress Hill on the blue "Island Line". The distance to the promenade is about 750 metres.

There is also a tram line running along the main street by the tube station.
