Repulse Bay, located in the southern part of Hong Kong Island, is the most spectacular bay in the region. Its name comes from a 19th century battle in which the British army repulsed attacking pirates. Today, the place is a luxurious residential area for dining, relaxation, and aquatic activities.The beach stretches long with clear azure blue water gently lapping the seashore. Its sand is golden and soft. With water temperatures ranging from 16ºC (60.8ºF) to 26ºC (80.6ºF) year round, it is a mecca for locals and visitors alike to escape the heat.

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.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.

This curved building in the background of Repulse Bay is known as “The Lily”. The building, a multi-housing project, is indeed a modern architecture masterpiece and it offers a new kind of luxury residence in Hong Kong and offers the chance to escape the city and relax in comfort and style.
