Tai Mei Tuk is located on a promontory of Plover Cove, which is encircled on three sides by mountains. In the 1960s the then Director of Water Supplies Department T.O. Morgan proposed linking Pak Sha Tau, Tai Mei Tuk with a 2-kilometre dam to cut off the cove from the sea, making it the world’s first reservoir in the ocean. To many, a stroll along the dam is almost a must-do activity, but at the same time the family walk here seems to have been forgotten. Tai Mei Tuk Family Walk is a one-kilometre circular walk that passes through four viewing points overlooking the reservoir, and looking out on the mountain range of Pat Sin Leng in North East New Territories, and Plover Cove and Ma Shi Chau in the south. There are also twelve columns representing the Chinese zodiac animal signs along the trail. They can only be found on this trail, so don’t forget to look for the one you were born under.
