    Easily accessible nice relaxing beach
    Even though it seems far from the city center, this beach is easily accessible as there’s lots of buses going to it. We decided to take the mtr to Ocean Park and walk by the coastal road pass Deep Water Bay before we reach Repulse Bay. It’s a very easy beautiful walk that takes around an hour or so. Repulse Bay is located quite urban and yet has that secluded beach feel. It has a maintained beach toilet for cleaning up after your swim in the beach. There’s restaurants by the beach and an arcade where you can buy water or sundries to eat by the beach. It’s family friendly too.

    Great place to unwind
    Great beach to unwind. The sunset during autumn months is spectacular. The nearby Tin Has temple is also beautiful. There are great food options near the beach and the sanitation facilities are also good.

    Too Crowded with thousands of people... How about trying something new and nature?
    Repulse Bay is a public beach with restaurant, shop, toilet facilities nearby, kind of convenient, but always crowded with people, especially recently there are tour operator taking hundred of people to "visit" this beach. If you're looking for enjoying a different holiday, nature, quite island, I would recommend going to a little island just 8 minutes boat-distance away from repulse bay by taking a speedboat. You can go snorkelling, enjoy a even more crystal clear water there.

20 min drive by taxi from Kowloon, Hong Kong, Repulse-beach is a small haven after spending a few days in the hectic city of HK.

I spent half a day with my teenager son on the golden sand admiring a picteresque arcipelago-scenery. It was a Monday and the 300-meter-beach-front was practically empty. I went jogging bear feet and enjoyed the long sandy coast under my feet. My son liked it too. The food in the Thai restaurant was delicious. There is a nice selection of other restaurants too. This beach is really worth visiting.

Repulse Bay is definitely one of the most well-known attractions in Hong Kong. The white, pleasant beach is already too famous for any further illustration. Locals and tourists alike flock to the area every weekend. Even for non-swimmers, the waterfront view is amazing.

The Beach at Repulse Bay is probably one of the best we have in Hong Kong in terms of beach size, sand quality, access to public transportation and area restaurants and shopping. This is a nearly 300 metre long stretch of seaside nuzzled up against the southern shores of Hong Kong Island. It is one of a series of beaches including Deep Water Bay Beach (to the northwest), Middle Bay Beach and South Bay Beach (to the southeast) and by far the most interesting.

You can visit Repulse Bay beach by public bus or taxi or by foot walking the Seaview Promenade from Deep Water Bay. You'll find promenade and pier areas on both ends of the beach with park benches. Alongside the beach there is a shopping arcade called the pulse, where there are a handful of alfresco restaurants, coffee shop, ice-cream as well as s sports gear and other retailers.

The beach itself is pretty good. In addition to the nice sand quality, there are several rows of trees towards the back of the beach providing a bit of shade on sunny days. You'll find expected range of facilities including public toilets, changing stations and life guard stations, BBQ pits (unavailable during the pandemic). Swimming is good at Repulse Bay Beach with normal sea conditions and views are nice with favourable visibility.

Do note that Repulse Bay Beach can be very crowded during warmer weather weekends and public holidays during non-pandemic times. As such, you may find it more favourable to opt for a second beach like nearby Deep Water Bay Beach if there are too many people here. Otherwise, this is a very good beach to spend time with friends or family on Hong Kong Island.

Repulse Bay is a well-known, popular beach and is easily accessible from central Hong Kong. It’s a long, sandy stretch of soft sand with a strip of shady trees. It’s a lovely swimming beach but don’t expect a surf beach. It’s more of a sunbathe and paddle beach. The water is calm, with gently lapping waves. There can sometimes be some green weed but apart from this, it is a nice, clean beach.
Facilities include lifeguards, shark nets, toilets and change rooms and a small-scale mall, called The Pulse. Along the beachfront, you’ll find a string of smart restaurants, cafes and bars, like Fratellis, Amalfitana and Limewood (although on a nice weekend, it’s best to book ahead or are else be prepared to wait for a seat).
Aside from the beach itself, there are 2 other often overlooked points of interest:
i) Seaview Promenade is a very scenic and easy 40 min walk along the coast, linking Repulse Bay with Deep Water Bay beach.
ii) the wonderfully colourful Tin Hau and Kwun Yam temple complex is hidden away at the very far south end of the beach. It’s free and definitely worth a look.
GETTING THERE: 6A, 6X and 260 buses from Central run frequently. The trip takes about 20 min and the ride at the top of the double-decker bus is very scenic.

We went on a late afternoon on a Sunday. And for a weekend it was surprisingly not as crowded as we thought it would be and everyone seemed to be still well civilized upon visiting the area amidst the whole situation with tbe vius going on. Majority seems to comply well with rules and regulations though some are still risk takers keeping their masks off completely for the whole of their stay whilst other make sure to coverup when not going for a swim or eating and drinking. Overall we had a good time, truly a god place to be with friends and family to relax on a day which is not on the peak of overcrowding.

Easy access to Repulse Bay either by minibus or bus no.63 from North Point. The beach is beautiful. I always swim there.
