Stanley is on the South coast of Hong Kong Island. A world apart from the city near Central and Admirality, it feels a lot more Mediterranean - sort of like a cruise ship stop. Don't let the map mislead you. Once you're at the bus stop, things are close, since you can go through the shopping mall building and take the elevator.
There is a small temple here (Pai Tak), which you can check out. Along with the Murray House, Stanley Ma Hang park, and main street with restaurants and shops.
