Shouson Hill is a hill (approx 150 m high) on the coast of Deep Water Bay east of Wong Chuk Hang on Hong Kong Island in Hong Kong. It is also an upmarket residential area located just to the north of the hill. The area consists primarily of Shouson Hill Road, a loop off the main Wong Chuk Hang Road, together with a few side roads.
The hill is named after Chow Shouson, who was born in the village and became a senior official in the Qing Dynasty before the 1911 Revolution and then an active businessman and politician in Hong Kong.
In the early 20th century, the British military used the hill to bunker troops and as a sentry post overlooking Deep Water Bay, Ocean Park, and Aberdeen. The bunkers are now abandoned and run down. During World War II, locals were evacuated to the area to avoid Japanese air assault.
Shopping opportunities are limited to Shouson Place which includes a PARKnSHOP grocery store.
