Just indulge yourself for a real bbq on the beach, white sand and tranquility. Ask Lam Wan Beach to taxi driver.

It might not be the easiest beach to get to, but it's only about 5 mins taxi from repulse bay, and besides, Hong Kong is quite small, so nowhere is ever quite far. Silky sand, blue water, this is like a private beach on average weekday. It's got changing/shower facilities, and even an alfresco cafe. Price on a high side, but quality of food is not bad. Good place to have a getaway and quick escape from the city.

In HK working so checking beaches out for when my wife and kids join me in June. To get there 65 bus from Causeway bay or Northpoint cost $9.80 (98p in UK Money). Or you can take the MTR to Tseung Kwan O and catch the 65 bus as the bus terminus next to the MTR station. On the way you pass ocean park and deep water way as well. When you arrive at repulse bay (which looked nice but quite busy) you need to flag a cab down. Cab ride to South Bay was $35 HKD (£3.50), so generous soul that I am gave him a $50 HKD. Beach was not too busy lots of ex pats there with children and a few Chinese. There are also lifeguards during the daytime and showers on the beach to clean up at the end. The toilets are not directly on the beach but across the road. To get to the beach from the road a short 2 minute walk down some steps. I didn't see any ramps for wheelchair access. The grotty cafe referred to earlier, can't comment on the food I didn't have any. I went and bought two beers and a water on arrival cost $120 HKD (£12.0) so certainly overpriced. I set off back at around 4:30PM. Flagged a cab down (lots of them around on Sunday, don't know if it the same on a weekday). Noticed the bus stops were getting quite rammed so told the driver to take me to Ocean Park MTR $100 HKD (£10.0). Then a quick 1 stop ride on the MTR and you are at Admiralty on the island line.

No public transport accessible to South Bay. That was why I like South Bay so much to avoid the tourists crowds.
