Introduction

Repulse Bay is one of the best resorts to spend you holiday in Hong Kong. The wide and wave-lapped beach is popular with locals and visitors alike and great for sandy strolls early morning or at sunset when all is at peace. As well as sun, sea and sand, there are plenty of diversions nearby. The former colonial style Repulse Bay Hotel and the ornate Life Guard Club built in traditional Chinese style are all there for you to explore.

Primarily an upmarket residential area, sun-drenched Repulse Bay has a relaxed resort-like atmosphere. This crescent-shaped stretch of sand is one of the most beautiful beaches in Hong Kong.

History

Repulse Bay is a fine harbor for small ships because the inlet in narrow and is guarded by small islands that protect it. The water isn't very deep. It is said that pirates based their boats in the bay until the British took control. In the last few decades, it has become one of Hong Kong's favorite beaches. Transportation to nearby Central District is easy. Central District is Hong Kong's government district and is the main business district.
