On the south side of Hong Kong Island, you will find the quiet stretch of coast that is St Stephen’s Beach. It is about 15 minutes from Stanley Village, a hotspot for its small craft market, seafront promenade, and outdoor cafes. While Stanley Beach is busy and crowded, St Stephen’s is generally much quieter.

The beach itself is charming, with golden sands leading into the blue waters of Stanley Bay and a backdrop of greenery. The water quality is good most of the time, but less so after a monsoon. There are many trees surrounding the beach, which provide often-needed shade. You can find a spot to relax, but this beach is very popular for those who want to participate in water sports.

There is plenty to do, including rafts, windsurfing, kayaks, sailboats, and more. In addition, you will find a modest snack stand and barbeque pits where you can have lunch.

If you visit Stanley Village, St. Stephens Beach is a great place to escape the crowds. You can enjoy the best of both worlds when you add this secluded beach to your list of destinations. You can take a bus or a cab, or just walk to the beach. You will find access south of Stanley Village.
