Lush, green landscape, interesting layered rock formations, and picturesque abandoned houses on a gentle walk circling the island. The line of people trying to get on the ferry at Ma Liu Shui may be long, so arrive at least an hour or so before departure time to be sure to get a seat, and bring breakfast to eat while waiting in line.

Hard to believe there are unknown locations to visit on the UNESCO Global Geopark island of Tung Ping Chau. However, this sort of applies to the dramatic seaside cliffs found at stop #6 on the HK Global Geopark trail map for Tung Ping Chau. What you find here are several hundred metres of incredible seaside cliffs made up of endless layers of colourful sedimentary layers. The cliffs run alongside the sea and are very photogenic. Much of the walk along the cliffs is simple and easy, you encounter loads of rock pools nearer to the sea, many with crabs, sea urchin, sea hares and fish. These are just as fun to see as those at more popular places around the island. As you walk further northwest along the cliffs, they at times become more challenging, particularly if tide is up, presenting more exciting clambering along the cliff sides, until you reach the impassable sea cave called Hoi Lo Tung(海螺穴) where the route is then cut off. To access the sea cliffs there is a splinter trail that you take on the west side of the island in the Chau Pui area. After a short 20 metres or so, you see the opening in the trees and the trail which scales down a section of accessible cliffside that can be navigated down to the sea level where the cliffs can be seen and enjoyed. Interestingly, there are usually a handful of other people here but far fewer than what you will find at the most popular geological highlights around the island. At times, these places can be very crowded. By comparison, we have been at the Chau Pui seaside cliffs by ourselves, being able to enjoy the remarkable sedimentary cliff formations while taking as many unobstructed photos as we like. At times, it is hard to believe so many many visitors miss this location when spending their days at Tung Ping Chau. It is one of our very favourite places on the island.

A very peaceful outlying island at the far northeastern territory of Hong Kong, opposite to Shenzhen Yantian. Only accessible by chartered ferries on weekends. The island is featured with marvelous geological landscape comprising of sediments rocks, which is a good attraction for sight-seeing as well as for education. Small restaurants & dormitories are available to visitors during holidays.

...to the far NE of Hong Kong’s territory, much closer to the Mainland. The walk around the island trail is pleasant enough but it’s the coastline that is really the draw: spectacular rock formations. And the local speciality, sea urchin, is also definitely worth trying!

Tung Ping Chau is the farthest and wildest of Hong Kong outlying islands, being just 2 km off the mainland Chinese coast and Mirs Bay and around 27 km away by ferry from the Ma Liu Shui Pier near University MTR Station. This is a small crescent shaped island less than 1.2 sq. km yet it is one of Hong Kong's finest marine and geological locations, the reason most visit here today. In the distant past the island had up to 3000 people and over 100 junk boats supporting a thriving fishing community. There were a handful of island villages with numerous hamlets some of which are several centuries old. By the 1970s, the villagers had mostly deserted their homes and migrated to the city (Hong Kong). Now these are little more than ghost towns, with hamlet ruins slowing being taken over by nature. Today, most come to the island as weekend day-trippers from the city, eager to hike the 6.5 km loop trail and enjoy the remarkable geological land and rock formations seen along the coastline. The trail passes through some of the abandoned villages mentioned above. It includes stretches through grassy hillsides, at times with heavy vegetation, wooded sections and even a couple of bamboo forests. There are viewpoints and numerous stops to see the beaches and geological highlights along the way. Highlights include the iron rock formations at A-Ma Wan Beach, the ancient Tin Hau Temple, the remarkable sedimentary towers (sea stacks) and wave-cut patterns lining the coastline at Lung Lok Shui. The shores of Pak Lap Wan and Chau Wei Kok offer more of these layered sedimentary formations. Another highlight is the fully formed sea abrasion canyon that you can walk through at Cam Keng Chau. These are rare geological features that form dramatic and beautiful scenery. Visitors will find numerous places to take rest or have a picnic around the island. There are several public toilets on the east side of the island as well as in the village cafes setup around 500 metres from the Tung Ping Chau Pier, which links the island with the civilised world of Hong Kong. You will find signs, trail markers and information panels provided at each of the highlight stops. Note : Public ferry service to Tung Ping Chau is available from Ma Liu Shui Pier near University MTR Station on Saturday (9am and 3pm) and Sunday (9am). It takes around 1.5 hours to travel the 27km distance to Tung Ping Chau. The ferry then returns from Tung Ping Chau to Ma Liu Shui Pier at 5.15pm (Sat and Sun). There are no daily sailings to Tung Ping Chau during weekdays.
