Repulse Bay Review

The tranquil area is home to a landmark apartment building with a hole in it. Following the principles of feng shui, the opening was incorporated into the design so the dragon that lives in the mountains behind can readily drink from the bay. The popular restaurant The Verandah is a great place for a meal with majestic bay views. The beach is large and wide, but be warned: it's the first stop for most Southside visitors. Huge statues of Tin Hau—Goddess of the Sea and Goddess of Mercy—at the east end of the beach border on gaudy. In the 1970s, when worshippers were planning to erect just one statue, they worried she'd be lonely, so an additional statue was created to keep her company. To get here, take Bus 6, 6A, 6X, 66, 64, or 260 from Exchange Square Bus Terminus in Central.
