No public transport accessible

No public transport accessible to South Bay. That was why I like South Bay so much to avoid the tourists crowds.

Still my favourite beach in Hong Kong. Easter Saturday and there's more lifeguards than the four beach goers here. Meanwhile Repulse Bay is choc a bloc full of bussed-in tourists.

Much quieter than a lot of the other beaches in Hong Kong. It's a bit of a walk from Repulse Bay but worth the trek. There's a bar and a great view out to Ocean Park. Definitely worth visiting to see the sun set.

A smaller beach compared to Repulse Bay beach but a lot more quiet. I swam at this beach the other day and the water was calm. Nice beach to watch the sun setting at South Bay.

South Bay is a beautiful and quiet alternative to Repulse Bay. It has the same view but without the chaotic hustle and bustle. It is not the most convenient to get to (15~20 minute walk after getting off the bus at Repulse Bay. It is off a dead-street so taxis only come by when someone call for one) but that... More

While Repulse Bay is flocked with tourists, South Bay offers an excellent alternative to the crowded tourist scene. Plenty of metered parking if you arrive before 10am on Saturday and Sunday. Also plenty of illegal parking spaces (not that I encourage anyone to do so). There used to be a restaurant but it's recently closed. Bring your own food should... More
