The southern shores of Hong Kong Island are home to a number of beaches just a short bus ride from the business district. Deep Water Bay is the first major beach on the bus route to Stanley. It has a large BBQ area overlooking the water.
There is a seaside promenade that links Deep Water Bay with the more popular Repulse Bay beach further south.
The crescent-shaped Repulse Bay beach is surrounded by expensive upscale residential buildings. It is well-equipped to handle visitors with changing rooms, showers, and shark prevention nets.
