TUNG PING CHAU
Situated far out in Mirs Bay, Tung Ping Chau, the easternmost island in Hong Kong, is listed in UNESCO’s Global Geoparks Network owing to its rugged geography – colourful wave-cut formations of sedimentary rock.
The entire island is demarcated as a country park; the six-kilometre Ping Chau country trail follows the rocky, ragged cliffs of the western shore to the crystal-clear waters and beaches of the eastern shore. The island is also famous among local snorkelling and diving enthusiasts as it boasts some of the city’s clearest waters, as well as stunning coral formations and marine life.
Getting there Take the ferry from Ma Liu Shui pier. (Runs primarily on Saturdays and Sundays, select times only).
