As the name suggests Stanley Main Beach is the big beach located next to Stanley Village, a well-known tourist beachside town in one of the most affluent areas of Hong Kong. It is on the south side of Hong Kong between Repulse Bay and Shek O, which are two other favorite spots.

One of the most popular draws to the village is the Stanley Market, which features crafts, shops, and outdoor dining. This is a busy spot with lots of things to do. The beach itself is beautiful, long stretch of white sand which is safe for swimming. It has a promenade where you can go for a walk, and the sunset/sunrise views are impressive.

It is a short walk to the beach down from the market, and it is worth the trip. If you enjoy people watching, there will be plenty to see, as this is a very crowded beach.

If you are staying for a few days, you will find hiking trails and many different attractions. You can hike to rhino rock, a big rock shaped like a rhino. They even have the Ma Hang Park with the Pak Tai Temple inside, which was once a major temple in the Ma Hang village.
