Repulse Bay Tips (10)

If it wasn't the rain...

Favorite thing I know that three days in Hong Kong would leave not much time for the beach, but I always thought that, at least one hour would be found to a quick swim. Repulse bay was the previous choice.

No! The weather didn't allow it, and we used the saved time (would you believe?)... shopping.

South shore of Hong Kong Island 1965

Favorite thing --

From the top of the Peak Tram I also walked down the other side of Hong Kong.

As I wrote in one of my letters:

Down the other side to the South China Sea and along the road to Aberdeen, where tens of thousands of Chinese live in the harbour in junks -- a veritable floating slum. And a ways down the road from Aberdeen towards Repulse Bay there's a stretch of wooded, windblown coast that is completely uninhabited, like the north shore of Lake Superior. And then Repulse Bay itself with its gleaming hotels and sandy beaches.

Movie Star at Repulse Bay

Favorite thing I just had to share this. When we were in Hong Kong my son was about eight years old, with blond hair and blue eyes. Although this is not rare to see in Hong Kong, the day we spent at Repulse Bay, you would have thought he was a movie star. There were some business men dressed up in suits down on the beach taking a look around. They did not speak English. They motioned for Dakota to build them a sand castle, and while he did this they were filming him! It was cute to watch them make different motions to him to get him to turn toward the camera. During our trip to Hong Kong and Beijing, Dakota was a little nervous at first because he had a lot of people wanting to touch his hair. We made a game up of pretending that he could be some famous movie star and that seemed to calm him down, and then it didn't bother him so much to stop and pose for pictures, and let people feel his hair.

Repulse Bay

Favorite thing Repulse Bay is well known area for home of Hongkong Movie star such Jackie Chan. In fact this is the only area with man made beach. They did is in such a organise and tidy beach, and I respect that. They did their best to maintain a great man made beach to compare some countries with natural beach but dirty and abandoned.

Repulse Bay...

Favorite thing This is Repulse's a beach with stones rather than sand... ;) Repulse Bay is on the southern side of Hong Kong Island...we got there by bus (a pretty interesting trip over the hills).

This place can get very busy in the summer months...although it was quite when we were there.

Repulse Bay

Favorite thing I've seen this very cutie baby riding the half moon style fish statue in the Repulse Bay and thought of sharing this to you. There are lotsa' statues in there and you can take pictures of all. I've seen people who are there takes pictures with the statues with them.

Fondest memory HongKong has some pretty beaches and Repulse Bay is one of them. The sand is a crescent strand shaped that makes the beach more lovely.

Take a walk from Deep Water...

Favorite thing Take a walk from Deep Water Bay to Repulse Bay.

Repulse Bay is the most famous beach in Hong Kong and most visitors will pay it a visit on their way to Stanley Market. Consider get off the bus a bit early at Deep Water Bay and to experience these nice beaches in a slighly different way.

Facing the sea and walk towards the left end of the beach. There is a pavement connecting to a paved path to Repulse Bay.

It is a quiet easy walk. On your way you will see some of the finest residence in town, some locals walking their dogs. And try to schedule your walk around sunset. The view is just unbelievably tranquill and beautiful.
