Tung Ping Chau resources

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.

Ferry from Ma Liu Shui, less than 10 minutes’ walk from KCR East Rail University Station; ferries depart Ma Liu Shui at 9am and 3.30pm on Saturdays and 9am Sundays and public holidays, with return ferries at 5.15pm on Saturdays, Sundays and public holidays.

Ngong Ping resources

Ngong Ping, Lantau

Info from Hong Kong's Great Outdoors

Ngong Ping is a plateau on the west slopes of Lantau Peak, best known as the site of the Big Buddha, which faces the far older Po Lin Monastery. There’s an easy stroll through the Tea Gardens, to a superb vantage for admiring southwest Lantau – and Lantau Peak, which you can climb via a steep trail.

Sunset Peak resources

Sunset Peak

Info from Hong Kong's Great Outdoors

A mountain of contrasts, Sunset Peak is rather heavy-set to the south, crossed by the Lantau Trail (you can turn off this to climb the grassy slopes to the summit). But to the north, it’s cut by a gorge with a series of waterfalls; a tough but rewarding place to explore.

One route up Sunset Peak starts at Nam Shan, just above Mui Wo – which you can reach on foot, or by bus if you want to save energy.

Chi Ma Wan resources

Chi Ma Wan Peninsula

Info from Hong Kong's Great Outdoors

A mountain biking and hiking trail circuits this hilly, relatively remote peninsula in southeast Lantau. Pleasant walk along the quiet road from Chi Ma Wan pier to Pui O.

Ferry from Outlying Islands pier, Central, to Mui Wo, then cycle (or walk); or less frequent ferry from Cheung Chau or Mui Wo.
