Beautiful & Easy Coastline Walking Trail
Mar 2021
This was my favourite part of our day on Peng Chau Island. It is an easy and very scenic walking trail that stretches along the coastline on the north part of the island.
Highlights are the sweeping coastal views, a dramatic rock formation known as Old Fisherman’s Rock and several small but lovely beaches with clear water and clean sand. For much of the walk, you look across the water at Disneyland and the Tsing Ma Bridge.
The path is a combination of paving and boardwalk. There are gentle rises but, for the most part, it is a level stroll. Even small children with little legs will manage it easily. It ends at Old Fisherman’s Rock. Make sure you continue to this point because there is a great lookout point and pavilion sitting here with views over to Hong Kong Island and Kowloon. From here, you can either return the same way or continue on to join the much longer Family Trail which loops around the whole island in a 7km track.
Take water, sunscreen and hats with you as there is no opportunity to buy anything along the path.
Getting There – As you get off the ferry, turn left and follow the harbour around to Tai Lei island. There is a clear sign marking the start of the trail near the island and the Seven Sisters temple. Even if you intend to continue on and do the Family Trail, I’d recommend starting at the Peng Yu Path from this point. We did the walk in reverse starting from Finger Hill via Tung Wan beach and the signs were not as clear in this direction, making it tricker to find our way.

Great coastal walk on the northern end of Peng Chau Island
Oct 2020
The Peng Yu Path is a short coastal walk and one of the highlights of the greater Peng Chau Island Trail that circles the island. This path starts just north of the Seven Sisters Temple, following the coastline eastward to the old Fisherman's Rock landmark.

The path is around 800 to 900 metres, paved and very easy to walk. It includes several shelters and passes 4 cute, secluded beaches that are worth spending time to enjoy. At the end of the path, you'll find the very interesting geological pile of large boulders that form an island called Old Fisherman's Rock.

In the end, the Peng Yu Path is one of the most beautiful and interesting stretches of the Peng Chau Island Trail. It a photogenic area and a great place to enjoy rural seaside environs with small crowds.

7km of family-friendly hiking trails on Peng Chau
Feb 2020
The Peng Yu Trail is a relatively easy series of crisscrossing routes around the small island of Peng Chau, providing 7km of family friendly hiking on well paved and easy to follow trails. There are some minor ascends but the walk is relatively flat, taking 3.5 - 4 hours to complete if you want to cover each of the different segments in the north and south of the island.

There are installed information panels along the trail to help with identifying your location. In the north, the trail is a single path to follow. However, in the south, it splinters into a few different directions so you have to pick where you want to go at times. The information panels you will encounter often highlight heritage attractions, interesting rock formations and other geographical highlights you will see along the way.

What you can expect is to pass by nice coastal areas, deserted stretches of beach and a handful of pavilion lookouts. the trail passes through revitalised farmlands and wetland areas, through the main village between the pier area to the west and Tung Wan beach to the east and through hilly countryside, it takes in heritage locations including a handful of temples, old industry locations as well as island residential communities in the hilly areas to the south.

Overall, the Peng Yu Trail is a good opportunity to visit areas of Peng Chau beyond the main village and beach area at Tung Wan. You can do it all or just choose a few sections if you have limited time for hiking while on the island.

ncie walk
May 2016 • Friends
Ping Chau is not really a tourist attraction but a good experience to local life. Take Ferry from Central. convenient for eating and shopping in the town. there are some shortcut or side track along the main trail without any notice. but it is easy to walk back to the town. bring water and some snacks. view of top is very nice and a secret rest point on a side track.

Charming walk by the sea on Peng Chau island
Dec 2015 • Couples
My wife and I visited Peng Chau island on the ferry and took this walk. It was lovely, quiet and with super views of the surrounding sea and islands. There were several deserted beaches. Well worth seeking out to get away from the crowds.
