Repulse Bay's beach has become one of Hong Kong's most popular beaches because it is close to the city on Hong Kong Island and because it is relatively clean, cozy, and has good public facilities.
Repulse Bay is a free public beach, one of about 40 such beaches in Hong Kong. Swimming is popular with both locals and visitors.
Part of the reason Repulse Bay is so popular is because the water is clean. The bay is on Hong Kong Island's southern coast and so out of the way of pollution from China. The Pearl River in Guangdong Province is highly polluted and affects the water quality on many beaches. Many of Hong Kong's beaches are somewhat polluted.
Lifeguards are on duty from March through November, and the facilities like the showers and bathrooms are good and free for the public to use.
The facilities include a light refreshment kiosk, changing rooms, showers, bathrooms, a playground, barbecue grills and a beach volleyball area. There is a raft that people can swim out to.
There are also two activity rooms for groups or organizations. People should schedule to use them. There is a public parking lot that requires a fee for parking.
In addition, it is easy to find restaurants, cafés and hotels near the beach.
On the eastern side of the beach are two large and colorful Taoist gods called Tin Hau and Kwun Yum. Some people say that Kwun Yum was an actual person who lived in China. Fishermen and sailors worship it. Many Chinese worship these gods.
