Repulse Bay: unwind at a beautiful beachfront retreat just a short trip from the bustling city

Written by South China Morning Post (Morning Studio)

For a change of pace, head to Repulse Bay — one of Hong Kong’s most exclusive residential areas — on the southern coast of Hong Kong Island, to enjoy a relaxing day out at the beautiful beach with attractions for the whole family. This stunning beachfront location, offering a wide range of al fresco dining options, is the perfect place to unwind — and just a short trip from the city centre. It was purportedly named after a British Royal Navy ship, HMS Repulse, while its apt Chinese name, Tsin Shui Wan means ‘shallow water bay’.

  • Repulse Bay Beach

    Stretching 292 metres, Repulse Bay Beach is known for its silky soft white sand. The water is clear, calm and especially inviting for taking a dip in the sea. In fact, Repulse Bay’s beautiful beach has been Hong Kong Island’s main swimming beach since the 19th century, with the island’s first public bus service launched to cater to both swimming and beach enthusiasts.

    Repulse Bay Beach is popular with local residents, especially during summer; if you prefer more serene surroundings, you should avoid visiting at weekends and on public holidays.

  • Kwun Yam Shrine

    Located in the southeastern part of Repulse Bay overlooking the sea, the shrines of two deities — Kwun Yam, the Goddess of Mercy, and Tin Hau, the Goddess of the Sea — stand guard, and will help visitors find peace of mind. While commanding in terms of sheer size, it is the colourful collection of other statues inside this Taoist temple compound that are most fascinating. These include three celestial rams meant to bring prosperity, and ‘a happy god in charge of love and matrimony’ around which couples often tie red strings with their names attached in the hope of living ‘happily ever after’.

  • The Pulse

    Seaview dining options are plentiful inside this mall. From fish tacos and fresh oysters, pizzas and pastas to Thai curries and satays (meat on skewers), there’s bound to be something for you, whatever your cravings may be. You can enjoy an ice cream afterwards, too, while your dogs are groomed and you pamper yourself at a hair spa. The pet-friendly mall is also home to a rooftop family member’s club, offering a stunning 180-degree view of the bay. The Pulse offers a wide range of food and beverage options, and there are vending machines near the main car park.

    Before going to Repulse Bay, remember to check out the event calendar of The Pulse, which organises regular activities for children and the whole family, such as games, workshops and weekend markets.

  • Seaview Promenade

    To savour Repulse Bay’s stunning environment from a distance, take a walk along Seaview Promenade — a flat, paved coastline track that’s perfect for families, running enthusiasts and dogs. The roughly 30-minute stroll along the promenade eventually leads to Deep Water Bay Beach, offering panoramic views of the Hong Kong Golf Club and its nine-hole course, the Middle Island with yachts anchored beside the Royal Hong Kong Yacht Club, and Ocean Park aquatic theme park, with its world-famous cable cars connecting the Waterfront and the Summit.
