Located above Stanley, Chung Hom Kok is a low-rise area and offers beautiful views of Stanley to the East or west above Chung Hom Kok Beach to Lamma Island.
There is a height restriction on buildings in the area, and many of these low-rises are older style walk up buildings.
All of them are designed for families, from 3 bedroomed apartments to large residences. A few have facilities such as swimming pools or gardens. Chung Hom Kok doesn’t have a centre as such, but it does have a small commercial development next to the fire station which includes a Wellcome supermarket. A short drive or longer walk takes you down to Stanley, which offers you pretty much everything you would need.
Headland Road is an exclusive residential cul-de-sac (off Repulse Bay Road, just before Chung Hom Kok) dotted with large low rise apartments and town houses. One of the most prestigious addresses in Hong Kong, Headland Road offers some of the most spectacular views in Hong Kong.
Many buses including Citybus no. 6, NFW bus no. 973 plus minibuses will go through Chung Hom Kok from Stanley on route to Central, although most people that live in Chung Hom Kok would have a car. Taxis are plentiful enough.
Chung Hom Kok is one of the nicest beaches on the South side, perhaps because it is not as accessible as others, and has an attractive playground and a small kiosk at the beach.
