Holidaymakers at Repulse Bay, Hong Kong

Repulse Bay, located in the southern part of Hong Kong Island, is the most spectacular bay in the region. Its name comes from a 19th century battle in which the British army repulsed attacking pirates. Today, the place is a luxurious residential area for dining, relaxation, and aquatic activities.

The beach stretches long with clear azure blue water gently lapping the seashore. Its sand is golden and soft. With water temperatures ranging from 16°C (60.8°F) to 26°C (80.6°F) year round, it is a mecca for locals and visitors alike to escape the heat.

Swimming is obviously popular and the Repulse 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 in Repulse Bay. 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.

As I know, no direct bus is available, you can take City Bus 99 and get off at Tunnel Toll Plaza, then walk north for about 400 yards to Wong Chuk Hang Road, take City Bus 6X and get off at chunghom kok station.
Actually, it’s not a long distance, so you can also take a taxi there, which may take 80-90 HKD.
