Tung Lung Island (Tung Lung Chau), formerly named as Nam Fat Tong, is an outlying island locating at the East of Hong Kong Island and South of Sai Kung Peninsular. It is the 9th largest island in Hong Kong.
It has an area of 2.42 km2 with only about 100 inhabitants. It is an ideal place for hiking, fishing, camping, stargazing, kite flying and rock climbing...
Taking ferry from Sai Wan Ho takes about 40 minutes
The island is famous for its beautiful scenery, rocks and waves. The campsite is located near the cliff, overseeing the scenic Fat Tong Mun, which is said to be the escape route of the last emperor of the Southern Song Dynasty in the 13th century. The teenage king jumped into the sea to end his life there.
Tung Lung Fort(1719) on the northeast of the island was constructed in the Qing Dynasty 300 years ago.
On the west is a historic rock carving of dragon measuring 1.8m by 2.4m. It is the largest ancient rock carving in Hong Kong. Both the fort and the stone carving are declared monuments.
Opposite to Tung Lung Chau is Hong Kong's biggest Tin Hau Temple(1266) on the Joss House Bay. A 13th century stone carving is found next to the Temple. The Temple is visited by thousands of fishermen, celebrating the birthday of the Goddess of Sea on 23rd of the third Chinese calendar month.Taking Leung Kee Kaito to Tung Lung Chau.
