Repulse Bay Hong Kong
A beautiful beach on the south central shore of Hong Kong Island that is accessible by public transportation from the city.
It is a long curved sand beach with a promenade that makes for a lovely morning or evening stroll to watch the sun rise or set.
The apartments here are the most expensive on the island.
Is anyone interested in a sailboat race?
At the Eastern end of the beach is a large Taoist shrine to Kwum Yam and Tin Hau.
These two giant statues are covered in Mosaic tiles.
Tin Hau is the Goddess of the sea and is the protector of the sailors, fishermen, and people who live along the coast.
Legend says that every time you cross the Longevity Bridge, you will add 3 days to your life. The Old Man from the Moon – the God of Love & Matrimony is the one in white on the left. I don’t know why he is wrapped up in red plastic ribbon. It was the 2016 New Year celebration of the year of the monkey.
I’m guessing these horses are only replicas of the 1405 Ming Dynasty treasures.
