This tiny, crescent-shaped island lies in Mirs Bay and holds the distinction as the easternmost part of Hong Kong. Small enough to circumnavigate in around an hour, Tung Ping Chau is a great place to get away from it all; even its sole village, Sha Tau, has been abandoned.
The draw for most adventurers are the rocky cliffs and shale formations along the western coast, the sandy beaches to the east, and the proximity to coral and other marine life offshore and in tide pools. There is a camping area, as well as a worn foot path around the circumference of the island, both of which see frequent action by weekenders. Take the ferry from Hong Kong on the weekend, which takes under 2 hours; otherwise, you'll need to find someone willing to bring you out here during the week.
