E. About Discovery Bay, Hong Kong
Perfectly framed by mountains and surrounded by the beautiful South China Sea, Discovery Bay, a serene resort development on the northeastern coast of Lantau Island, is a peaceful oasis away from hectic Hong Kong. Offering vast green landscape, spectacular sea views and stunning views of Disneyland’s nightly fireworks, Discovery Bay presents a resort lifestyle and an exceptional destination. The multicultural community, unique European-styled architecture and the lively culture create a pleasing ambience for a relaxing getaway.
Discovery Bay is only a step away from downtown Central. It is just a 25-minute ferry ride from Central Pier 3, while shuttle bus rides from Sunny Bay or Tung Chung MTR Stations take only 15-20 minutes. In addition to ferry and bus services, urban and Lantau taxis also provide convenient access to and from Discovery Bay North area through Discovery Bay Tunnel.
Situated next to Discovery Bay Pier, D’Deck is the renowned oceanfront alfresco dining destination with numerous thematic restaurants along the promenade beside Tai Pak Beach. With spectacular 180° sea views and nightly Disney fireworks, D’Deck offers a wide selection of international cuisine at First Korean Restaurant (Korean), Kiraku Tei Japanese Restaurant (Japanese) and Koh Tomyums (Thai) for Asian cuisine; Solera (Spanish), Café Duvet (Bar), Berliner (German), Figos (Casual Western) and McSorley’s Ale House (Irish Pub & Indian) for European tastes; and Coyote Mexican Cantina (Mexican) and Hemingway’s by the Bay (Caribbean) for a flavour of Central America.

DB North Plaza, spread over 186,000 sq. ft. at the Yi Pak Bay area, was opened in 2010. It is a retail mall serving as the second social hub for Discovery Bay residents and visitors. Offering two shopping arcades, two office buildings and an open piazza, DB North Plaza is adjacent to Auberge Discovery Bay Hong Kong, the deluxe resort hotel opened in Spring 2013. This seaside mall not only serves Discovery Bay residents, but also hotel guests and visitors from neighbouring districts with great selection of shopping and dining establishments.
