Why Repulse Bay is special ?

Primarily an upmarket residential area, sun-drenched Repulse Bay has a relaxed resort-like feel to it. Its wide, wave-lapped beach is popular with both locals and visitors and is great for strolls in the early morning, daytime sun soaking when the bathers are out in force, or lingering at sunset when all has turned mellow.


This crescent-shaped stretch of sand is one of the most beautiful beaches in Hong Kong. The Hong Kong Life Saving Society clubhouse is built in traditional Chinese style, with a ceiling decorated with magnificent swirling dragons. Towering twin statues of the deities Kwun Yam and Tin Hau dominate the picturesque gardens that lead down to the beach.


What to explore at Repulse Bay?

Swimming is obviously popular and the bay is outfitted for safety with shark prevention nets and floating platforms. During the summer, lifeguards are on duty.

Besides aquatic activities, there are extensive facilities for visitors. Barbecue racks are available under the shade near the beach. In addition, the area is dotted with hotels, supermarkets, and cafes.

A lighthouse near the beach is a popular place to take photos. Watching the sunset is another popular pastime for visitors. The Zhenhai Tower Park, built in the traditional Chinese style, is located near the beach. Huge statues of the Queen of Heaven and the God of Mercy (Kwan-yin) sit in front of the park.

The Repulse Bay Tower was rebuilt on the site of the Repulse Bay Hotel. Now, it's a building for residence. In its front is the Repulse Bay Shopping Plaza. In it, many restaurants and shops can be found.

At the Exchange Square, there are buses running there, including Buses No.6, 6A, 6X and 260. The bus ticket costs around HK$7.9. As the bus driver doesn't give you change, you'd better prepare some small money before getting on the bus

Some of my family live in the Repulse Bay area so I visit the beach alot when I travel to HK. This beach is very large and has some trees if you need shade. Shark nets all round and a few pontoons you can swim out too. At one end of the beach is a pavillion and the other end is a chinese shrine - worth a walk to see. Some cafes, shops and supermarkets near the beach if you need lunch, water refills, snacks, ice cream - you name it!
