Lantau Trail (Section 10) Shui Hau to Old Tung Chung Road
If you are like any city dwellers who always want a weekend getaway from the concrete jungle, then Section Ten is the place. Number of bays could be seen, this section, full of holiday-makers at weekends, begins at Shui Hau Village, which was once a large village on Lantau Island. The village is an ideal place for families to get close to nature – it is home to farms that produce such fruit as lychees and papayas; it has a long mudflat of high biodiversity because of the slow-flowing water from the natural sea bay facing the village. In particular, when the tide retreats, horseshoe crabs can be spotted and the sky is reflected off the water surface of the mudflat, forming ‘the mirror of the sky’. The second half of the section features some beautiful beaches in Tong Fuk and Cheung Sha, where a lot of pottery and stoneware were once unearthed. It is said that the area has been inhabited by people since the Ming Dynasty for its bumper fish harvest. You can also drop by Tin Hau Temples and Kwan Tai Temples of different sizes along the village and the coast.
