The view south from the beach.

Across the water we see the sea-wall of a reclaimed area of land. Originally it housed oil storage tanks, but a few years after this photo was taken Mei Foo Housing Estate will be built there (Wikipedia says the Estate was built in phases from 1965 to 1978).

Above the reclamation on the right is Stonecutters Island, then in the far distance is Hong Kong island with The Peak on the right.
