Skip Navigation LinksHong Kong Island > Southern District > Repulse Bay



Repulse Bay is one of the most popular beaches in Hong Kong, it is always packed with swimmers in summer.

Apart from swimming and sunbathing, there are some restaurants and barbeque sites at the back of the beach, very relaxing.

The clear sparkling water and fine white sand are the labels of Repulse Bay. In addition to these, "The Repulse Bay" (Right) , "The Repulse Bay Centre" right in front of "The Repulse Bay", and 129 Repulse Bay (Left) are the landmarks of Repulse Bay as well.

"The Repulse Bay" is a residential apartment nowadays, and it was built on a former hotel site. "The Repulse Bay Centre" in front of it is a very elegant, beautiful European building built during the colonial era. This building is not easily spotted, as you need to walk up the stairs after you get off the buses or minibuses (Stanley bound). It has a few restaurants and some shops, and this place was filmed in a popular Hong Kong movie as well. This is certainly another place to go besides the beautiful beach.

Expected to be completed this year, 129 Repulse Bay looks like an opening white lily. According to some news articles, 129 Repulse Bay was originally built as residential apartment. However, plans might have changed and it may become a luxury hotel, and hopefully it will match the "Burj Al Arab" of Dubai!

Pictured left are the goddess sculptures that were prayed to by many, especially the fishermen during the old days as they wished for safe journeys on the sea. These traditional sculptures are located on the east side of the beach.

On the west of the Repulse Bay, there is a Seaview Promenade connecting to Deep Water Bay. It takes around 20 minutes to reach Deep Water Bay. This is another popular beach, however Repulse Bay is more attractive and more beautiful.
