Tung Ping Chau, Hong Kong
Info from Hong Kong's Great Outdoors
Island that’s as far from the rest of Hong Kong as you can get without needing your passport. Though just 2km long, and relatively flat, it makes for a rewarding day out. There’s a fine beach with coral heads just offshore (protected by a marine park); hamlets dot the island; trails include an easy circuit of the island.
