Hong Kong Repulse Bay

Things to See in Repulse Bay

Travelers to Hong Kong are faced with a variety of activities from which to choose. From the museums to the restaurants and nightlife, the choices are many. Choosing destinations often depends on the mood and taste of each individual traveler. During the summer, some of the best places to head are the beaches. It makes a great place to relax and unwind.

Without a doubt, the most popular beach in Hong Kong is Repulse Bay. Both the locals and travelers frequent the beach, which is located on southern Hong Kong Island. The name 'Repulse' is unique, and comes from a time in the 19th century when the British repulsed attacks from pirates. The picturesque bay, with its gentle waters and golden sand belie the violent history of those pirate battles.

Today, Repulse Bay pulls tourists to the shore of that gorgeous lagoon. It is one of the best ways around to beat the heat. It is completely safe to swim in the lagoon, as it is outfitted with anti-shark netting, and lifeguards. The beach is also known for being very clean.

Besides all of the water activities that you can find in Repulse Bay, you will also be able to enjoy shopping in some of the plentiful stores and dining in one of the cafés or restaurants. The feel of the area is completely modern, but the area retains much of the colonial architecture for which it is known.

On the eastern side of the beach, you can find a temple to Tin Hau. At the temple are the statues of two goddesses, Tin Hau and Kwun Yum. This is an interesting area and you should be sure to take a few photos. Not many beaches in the world also have temples.

Those who are staying in Hong Kong and hoping to make a trip out to Repulse Bay will find that there are a number of different ways in which to get there. One can take a bus, a taxi, or (if you are staying in a hotel that is nearby) you can even walk. If you rented a car for your stay, you can drive there s there is some parking space available. You might also be able to find parking at the Repulse Bay Hotel.

If you are going to be staying in Hong Kong, you will want to find a hotel that has everything you need, and that doesn't break the bank. When searching, remember to visit to find the best deals on all the best hotels.
