Repulse Bay : Beach Hideout

Ever thought of a beach, perfect for strolling in the early morning with daytime sun soaking. Well,  Repulse Bay of Hong Kong offers exactly the same. 😀

This crescent-shaped stretch of sand is one of the most beautiful beaches in Hong Kong. Towering twin statues of the deities Kwun Yam and Tin Hau dominate the picturesque gardens that lead down to the beach. Most of its grounds were redeveloped into luxury apartments more than 20 years ago, and only the original arcade remains.:D

Always full of surprises, the lively bay offers excitement and peace for the families. Prominent in Hong Kong folklore as a historical hot spot of piracy, the area has today assumed a reputation for rest, relaxation and even romance. 😍😙

Guess what? 

The now-defunct Repulse Bay Hotel was a favored destination during colonial times, and featured prominently in the 1955 movie “Love Is a Many Splendored Thing”. 😀

The beach hosts a variety of activities, including the Hong Kong Beach 5s, and other sporting activities such as beach running, volleyball, swimming etc. 😍

One excellent feature of The Pulse is its wide selection of restaurants, from Western cafes such as The Coffee Academics, to Japanese eateries like the Shoku Japanese Binchotan Grill, and Cantonese favorites. 😋

It’s no wonder that Repulse Bay is a much-loved destination for tourists, and absolute gold dust for those who are lucky enough to live in the area. 😀
