Discovery Bay is located in the northeast of Lantau Island, forming a privately developed town in the Outlying Islands district. It covers several bays and is surrounded by continuous mountains, primarily developed for private residential purposes.
Originally a coastal village, Discovery Bay evolved into a resort housing development, integrating residences, hotels, recreational, and vacation facilities. Since the completion of Chek Lap Kok Airport, the government gradually connected Lantau Island to the urban areas, and Discovery Bay is now linked to Tsing Ma Bridge and the airport, significantly improving the transportation network.
Discovery Bay boasts picturesque scenery, exuding an exotic atmosphere, with buildings surrounding various bays. The living environment is comfortable, making it popular among expatriates. The area features amenities such as beach playgrounds, leisure gardens, community halls, recreational clubs, and a golf club, with nearby hiking trails.
There are also shopping complexes in the area, including DB Plaza, DB North Plaza, and DB Commercial Centre, offering various shops, restaurants, supermarkets, and department stores for convenient shopping. In terms of transportation, Discovery Bay provides ferry and bus services, transporting residents to and from urban areas such as Central and Sunny Bay.
