Repulse Bay

Repulse Bay is in the southern part of Hong Kong Island. Its name comes from a 19th century battle in which the British army repulsed attacking pirates. Another theory holds that the bay was named after the HMS Repulse, which was stationed at the bay at one point. Today, Repulse Bay is a luxurious residential area for dining, relaxation, and aquatic activities.

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

In addition to the aquatic activities, there are extensive facilities for visitors. Barbecue pits are available under the shade near the beach. Hotels, supermarkets, and cafes dot the area. A lighthouse near the beach is a popular place to take photos. Watching the sunset is another popular activity 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.
