Characteristics:
Tung Ping Chau is one of the most remote islands in Hong Kong. Lying northeast to Kowloon, the island has long white beaches of smooth sand scattered with seashells, starfish and spiked sea urchins. Multicoloured shale forms the base of the island and extends to the Mirs Bay water. The island is virtually a deserted village with cottages built of shale, stones and shingles.

Once being the centre of smuggling rackets to and from the mainland in the 1950s and 1960s, and the destination for "swimmers" (illegal immigrants) from the mainland. Despite this, Ping Chau attracts Hong Kong people to make a visit for its quiet beauty and reminiscences of a fishing village. The island is about half a square mile in area, so it is ease for sight-seeing around. A few ferries run from Ma Liu Shui to the island.
