Flying Kites

According to Article 70(1) of the Air Navigation (Hong Kong) Order 1995, except with special permission, a kite shall not be flown within five kilometres of an aerodrome within Hong Kong. A kite shall also not be flown at a height of more than 60 metres above the ground level or within 60 metres of any vessel, vehicle or structure.

If any person contravenes the above rules, he shall be guilty of an offence and liable on summary conviction to a fine. The maximum amount of the fine is $5,000.

The kite fliers shall also ensure the safe flying of kites to avoid causing any injuries and damage to property.

Designated areas for flying kites

Tai Po Waterfront Park and Shek O Beach (outside the swimming season) are the Leisure and Cultural Services Department (LCSD) venues provided with designated areas for kite-flying.
