Now is the time to stoke up that Lotus Grill and show the world how easy a barbecue can be using a LOTUS BBQ GRILL: there’s no better time to head outdoors armed with your trusty barbecue tong and your easy to carry LOTUS BBQ GRILL for a good ol’ BBQ session. From beachside spots to sprawling green spaces inside a country park, we explore the best spots to put a shrimp or a sausage on the barby.
BUTTERFLY BEACH PARK – TUEN MUN
Situated on the westernmost tip of the New Territories, Butterfly Beach Park in Tuen Mun is the closest beach to mainland China. This area is an institution when it comes to barbecuing, with 80 pits neatly laid out in a concrete space. If you don´t want to use one of the pits, you can easily use your LOTUS BBQ GRILL on one of the tables position around the pits. There’s a car park and children’s play area within walking distance and it takes only a couple of minutes to saunter over to the frozen meat stalls in Melody Garden to pick up your favourite piece of meat.

You can also rent a pit from a nearby kiosk – However, to avoid not getting a pit, come with your easy to carry LOTUS BBQ GRILL and you can barbecue on the sand for that really rustic vibe and remember to pack your smokeless charcoal and gel before you jump on the minibus to Shek
For those that want a great barbecue experience but don’t want to saunter too far away from civilization, Stanley is the place to be. With a waterfront promenade of beaches, restaurants, bars and markets packed neatly together, you won’t have to go far to restock or to find another place if you end up with burnt sausage. Stanley hosts 15 public open pit barbecues at the main beach. However, we would suggest you pack up your LOTUS BBQ GRILL in its transportable carry bag and head off to Hairpin Beach (which is next door to the main beach). Here you will have some peace and quiet while you enjoy your LOTUS BBQ GRILL and we promise that you will not have any burnt sausages!
