Shouson Hill, on the south side of the island near the Aberdeen Tunnel, is a green and luxurious neighbourhood with many low-rise apartments and deluxe villas and townhouses which extend up the hill from Deep Water Bay. There are views of Aberdeen, tree-lined hillside and the South China Sea from many of the dwellings here. The location is perfect for a morning jog along the hilly road.
Access to the north side from here is very easy with the Aberdeen Tunnel and the Deep Water Bay Road providing quick routes. There are several bus routes that serve the area. Amenities are a little scarce here, but it is a short trip to the shops of Repulse Bay or to Hong Kong Parkview which has services.
Ocean Park, Hong Kong's theme park, lies just next door on the peninsula which forms Deep Water Bay's western side. The Hong Kong Golf Club and the Marina Club are also here, making the region a favourite to the country club crowd. Deep Water Bay's beach is reputed to be one of Hong Kong's nicest. The South Island School is also located here.
