Shaped like a crescent moon, the island is only 2km long with sandy beaches and low cliffs. At low tide you can see coral heads as you walk along the ferry pier. Several trails wind through hamlets and small forests dotted around the island. Head out for a tranquil afternoon, or stay overnight at one of the lodges or pitch a tent in the campsite.

GETTING THERE

Often confused with Peng Chau near Discovery Bay, Tung Ping Chau is located at the furthest north-eastern tip of Hong Kong. Ferries depart from Ma Liu Shui near University KCR station on Saturdays, Sundays and public holidays. The ferry takes an hour and a half and can be very busy as there are no public ferries during weekdays.
