Fan Lau Country Trail Information


Fan Lau Country Trail takes you to many historic monuments and famous sights. Although only 2 km in length, it takes you back hundreds of years like a time tunnel.

Fan Lau is so named because it juts out into Lantau Channel where two contrasting currents meet: muddy water in the northwest and beryl clear water in the southeast. Where the currents merge a sinuous line can be seen.

Fan Lau Village covers three scenic bays. Tung Wan is exposed to surging waves and therefore has few villagers. Sai Wan has a calm beach and most villagers settled there. Fan Lau Miu Wan is the smallest but has a Tin Hau Temple by the sea that dates back to the Reign of Emperor Qian Long (1736-1795).

Atop the Fan Lau headland is the famous Fan Lau Fort. Earliest accounts of this military position are from the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644). The ruins belong to structures built by Emperor Kongxi in the latter years of his reign (1722). It is a rectangular structure that ceased operation in the 1900's. The Fan Lau Lighthouse standing atop the hill near the Stone Circle is a key navigation facility that guards the southwestern sea border of Hong Kong.
