The School is a gated community set into the forested hills of the Tai Lam Country Park immediately behind it. The country park covers an area of 54 sq. km and it contains many trails for walking and picnic sites. There is direct access to the MacLehose Trail which, at over 100kms, is the longest trail in Hong Kong. From many parts of the campus, there are stunning views across the sea and towards the hills.
The local surrounding area of the School is called the Hong Kong Gold Coast. It contains residential development completed in the early 1990’s, a five-star hotel, a convention centre, a piazza including a shopping mall and numerous restaurants backing onto the Gold Coast Yacht and Country Club and marina, and the 545-metre long Golden Beach. This is the largest public beach in Tuen Mun and the first artificial beach in Hong Kong. Tropical trees and flowers are planted on both sides of a 480-metre long promenade running parallel to it.
