Repulse Bay's Highlights

Repulse bay got its name from a British Warship called H.M.S. Repulse. Around 1910, a villa style hotel was built and the government added roads and housing for the project. The beach was open to the public in the early 20’s. Nowadays Repulse Bay has developed into a high-end residential area and a hot tourist spot.

The original Repulse Bay Hotel was turned into a shopping mall in 1982. Beside the beach, there are beach volley ball courts, a BBQ area and food kiosks. The beach was once closed due to water pollution but reopened after the government improved the water quality around the area.

Next to Repulse bay is a tourist town called Stanley. Its waterfront is filled with bars and restaurants and it offers clean and clear views to the South China Sea. The Stanley market is made up by an array of small shops and street vendors and is where you will find handicrafts and low-cost fashion articles from local artists.

Many beach goers choose to cool off in bars in Stanley after spending the afternoon on the beach as it is a great seaside town to shop and eat.
