Stanley is a coastal town and a popular tourist attraction in Hong Kong. It is located on a peninsula on Hong Kong Island. It is east of Repulse Bay and west of Shek O, adjacent to Chung Hom Kok. Administratively, it is part of the Southern District. Stanley has many bars and restaurants on its waterfront along Stanley Main Street. To the west of Stanley Main Street, past the amphitheatre in Stanley Plaza is the Tin Hau Temple (Temple of the Queen of Heaven). Built by Cheung Po Tsai in 1767, it is one of the oldest temples in Hong Kong.

  • Apart from the pier, the scene doesn’t look too outstanding in this popular tourist location.
  • Visibility to the sunset is limited as view is blocked by the hill on the west, only early sunset is available.
  • There are multiple bus and minibus routes passing by Stanley, and you can also drive here or take taxi.
  • Usually a weekend crowd is present but still not difficult to find a place to take photo of sunset along the promenade.
