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.
