Yacht watching and beach exclusivity
Middle Island may be small, but it's wonderfully easy to get to – it's only a two minute boat ride from Hong Kong. This island is home to the members-only Royal Hong Kong Yacht Club (RHKYC) but also features a quiet, sandy beach that is open to the public. You can get there by jumping on the RHKYC's free shuttle boat at Repulse Bay. Lie back on the serene, riff-raff-free sand and watch the club boats go past. Now that's the life.
Don't miss It's all about the tranquil, secluded beach.
Get there Take a bus (6A, 6X,73, 260, 973 and 65), minibus(40, 40X, 52) or taxi down Island Road. Going in the direction of Repulse Bay, get off at the second stop after Deepwater Bay Beach (52 Island Rd). You'll see a small set of stairs with a sign pointing to 'Middle Island'. Follow the steps down to the small pier on Seaview Promenade. RHKYC's free shuttle boat goes from the pier every few minutes, from 10am-10.30pm (Mon-Thu), 10am-11.30pm (Fri), 7.30am-11.30pm (Sat) and 7.30am-10.30pm (Sun and public holidays).
