This is a small and exclusive area off Repulse Bay Road and includes South Bay Road and South Bay Close. It is quieter than Repulse Bay because South Bay Road is a no-through road with only one minibus route. This makes the beaches quieter and thus cleaner. Middle Bay Beach and South Bay Beach are among the best on Hong Kong Island.
Accommodation comprises mostly low rises and town houses, with some high rises, among them Ruby Court, Belgravia, Grand Garden and South Bay Towers towards the end of South Bay Road. All of the bigger developments offer extensive facilities.
There are some newer and older town houses, and some of these are walking distance to the amenities of The Repulse Bay and Repulse Bay Beach, including it’s excellent shopping centre. While there are a few smaller size apartments, with 1 or 2 bedrooms, they are predominately larger family sized residences.
Hong Kong International School is located on South Bay Close.
The beaches are a big draw to South Bay, with all three beaches, Repulse Bay Beach, Middle Bay Beach and South Bay Beach very accessible. The shops and amenities of The Repulse Bay and Repulse Bay Beach are within walking distance.
Many of the developments do offer a shuttle bus service to Repulse Bay and often further, and there is a minibus 44J, and of course taxis. Repulse Bay is well connected to HK island, although most people living in South Bay will have a car.
