Kat O Heritage Trail
Kat O is the biggest island in the northeast New Territories. Characterised by a curvy shape and deep bays, it is a natural shelter, reflected in its name, which means Lucky Harbour. Kat O takes pride in its long history and rich heritage, and there are many cultural heritage sites to explore. Once an economic hub in the Mirs Bay region, Kat O remains a scenic island with many sites of natural beauty. Indeed, it is celebrated as the “Pearl of Mirs Bay”.
The Kat O Heritage Trail is centred around Kat O Main Street and goes to various heritage sites on the island. The trail is generally level. The paths forms two branches, one leading to a lookout at Ko Tei Teng and another to Ko Pang Teng. The former offers distant vistas of Yantian, Shenzhen, and other regions in the north; the latter offers a view across the lyrical Double Haven in the south. There are 27 interpretation panels along Kat O Heritage Trail. Scan the QR code on the panel to listen to stories told by the villagers and geopark guides.
