Fan Lau Stalagmite
Located at the southwestern end of Lantau Island, Fan Lau got its name because it offers clear views of the boundary between the estuary waters of the Pearl River and the sea waters of the Pacific Ocean. The name ‘Shek Sun’ has a long history and Fan Lau Tsuen was once called Shek Sun Village. Since it is situated on the principal fairway, a fort was installed there in the early 1800s and its surviving remnants can still be seen. To the north of the fort is a verdant woodland where an 8-metre rock juts out. The massive rock, formed by prolonged weathering, is actually two stones piling on each other, like bamboo shoots that stick out after rain.
