Diving into Repulse Bay

Beautiful sea views, miles of soft white sand and a plethora of beachside restaurants have made Repulse Bay into one of the most popular neighbourhoods to play and live in Hong Kong. Residents can enjoy the beach right at their doorstep, with plenty of kids’ playground and play areas nearby. The scenic and relaxed environment offer a great escape from the hustle and bustle of the city but is still within a 20-minute train ride from the city centre of Central. It has become a neighbourhood that lives up to its idyllic image.
