It is perhaps it is not as spacious as the beach on Repulse Bay, the Stanley Beach has its unique charms.


At walking distance from other tourist attractions at Stanley, the beach is a great place to chill in the sea breeze. Swimmers can swim safely within netted areas; while surfers or rowers can hire the necessary equipment from the beach and explore the ocean.


At around June each year, more than 100 teams gather at Stanley to celebrate the Chinese Tuen Ng Festival (also known as the Dragon Boat festival) by competing for Dragon Boat Championships in different categories. It is an annual party of those who likes to row, cheer and have fun!
