Lantau Trail (Section 11) Tung Chung Road to Pui O
As the easiest section of the Lantau Trail, Section 11 begins at a vehicular road that leads to the shaded footpath. Beyond the shaded path is a wide view of the bay, with Chi Ma Wan Peninsula and Shek Kwu Chau in the distance and Pui O Beach in the vicinity. Pui O, formerly referred to as Lo Pui O because the shape of its terrain resembles that of a conch, is one of the most popular local beaches, with clear turquoise water and soft pale sand. It is also a site of archeological interest, as neolithic artefacts, which bear testimony to ancient settlement, were once found there. This is actually echoed by “Yue Daji”, which keeps a record of events that took place in Guandong in the Ming dynasty. In addition to vacation rentals, a range of facilities are also available near Pui O Beach, including campsites, and barbecue pits. You will definitely want to spend the day in this short yet fulfilling footpath.
