PO TOI ISLAND
蒲台島

Located an hour south of Aberdeen (and just 30 minutes off Stanley), Po Toi manages simultaneously to be close and far away. Remote, yet
inhabited, the island is the perfect
Saturday getaway - offering a relatively easy but very scenic walk and some brilliant seafood.

To get it over and done with, we start the walk climbing past the island's now abandoned school. A bit of rock hopping follows and then we
scale Ngau Wu Teng which at 188 m is the highest point of the day. A pavillion at the top provides a little shade and seats for us to take in the
spectacular views over the southern headland (Ngong Chong) and some of the many islands nearby.

Descending Ngau Wu Teng involves tackling an awful lot of steps (1029 to be precise). Just before we reach sea-level once again we make a
little detour up to Tortoise Rock and then on to the old, and rather worn-looking, lighthouse perched precariously on a steep cliff side at the
southernmost point in Hong Kong.

From the lighthouse, we continue on a relatively flat concrete path along the coastline to Wan Tsai village, where we will stop for a (late) lunch
at the island's
seafood restaurant.

After lunch, there is still time for a visit to the Tin Hau temple and a look at the fish farms placed in the middle of bay.

Our
ferry back departs at 4:00 pm.
