Hong Kong Repulse Bay Beach

5 September 2011

Repulse Bay...yes

After a lengthy walk (not really, and I was never really that lost, but I like to exaggerate), I found the train, and caught it back to a different location where I know you can get the right bus to the beach.
After a few seconds the bus came along, and we went up the extremely picturesque road, also the bus was full of people in beach clothes.
The road over the top of Hong Kong island is fantastic, I wish I could have taken photos out the bus window but you only ever get a glimpse through the trees.

Arriving at Repulse Bay, theres some impressive looking apartments, including this building with a hole through it.
That is however all there is as far as buildings go, theres no shops or restaurants (besides a pizza hut). A new beachside complex that will house many shops and restaurants is nearing construction completion.

Before stripping off, I took notice of the e-coli levels in the ocean. They seemed to have machines out there treating the water too, probably trying to chlorinate the ocean.

The beach is picturesque, with the outlying islands and lots of big ships going past. The sand is not soft, its like the sand in Chennai, densely packed with lots of gravelly stuff through it. I am not 100% sure it is natural or if they transported it there to make a beach.

At the end of the beach is a buddhist temple / ice cream shop. You cant really see from the photos but all thats inside the building is an ice cream shop. It didnt stop the tour groups from mainland china stopping to offer prayer to hagen dagz though.

I had the place pretty much to myself, the only people bathing were fat bald men in tiny speedo style bathers. Not to be out done I pulled my rio undies as high as they could go and joined them parading around the sand scaring away any females that might dare set foot on the sand.
This may be the only time I am the fittest guy at the beach.

Now that I am a toned and bronzed beach going muscle man, I thought I better have a salad for lunch. This was back in Wan Chai, near the future home of the Mclaren dealership (according to a sign on a rolls royce dealers window).
