Hong Kong, surrounded by water on three sides, possesses clear and beautiful coastlines.  Offering unique and varying vistas of the coasts in Sai Kung, the rocky Tai Tan Country Trail consists of shady hiking trail, footpaths near streams, and gravel paths.  It is a feast for the eyes as it is home to mangroves where hikers can get a close look at mudskippers and fiddler crabs and to a variety of species of butterflies, including Common Mime, Banded Tree Brown, and Plum Judy.  Moreover, visitors will never get bored as they can watch Sharp Peak, Ko Lau Wan, and Tap Mun in the distance along the trail.  The twisty path along the coast to Nam Fung Wan passes through Lan Lou Au and Hoi Ha Wan.  The good water quality, together with mild and gentle waves at the area, provides habitats for marine lives such as corals, coral reef fish, starfish, and jellyfish.  With a rich biodiversity, Hong Kong is a true gem which deserves love and protection.
