Tai Tau Chau - Rock Climbing Paradise

This place is one of the famous spots of rock climbing in Hong Kong.
It is located on a small island that is isolated by tombolo.
Visitors must walk over a small bridge to cross the tombolo and then reach the island.

Suffered from the northeast monsoon and tide for millions of years, this island is full of rugged granites and rocky cliffs.
The coastal mountain cliffs with its huge stones attract a large number of rock climbers to go here each year.

Apart from the mountain cliffs, there is also a footpath that leads to the top of the hills on the island.
The footpath will lead you to a great lookout point.
At the lookout point, visitors can enjoy the panoramic views of the sea and the nearby islands.

To get there, you can take the MTR to the Shau Kei Wan MTR Station and leave at Exit A3.
Then, take bus No.9 at Shau Kei Wan Bus Terminus and get off at Shek O Bus Terminus.
Alternatively, you can take Red Minibus at Shau Kei Wan MTR Station Exit A3 and get off at Shek O Beach.

Afterwards, walk along Shek O Road to get to Shek O Village Road.
Proceed along Shek O Village Road until you reach the dead end of the Shek O Headland Road.

Keep walking and there is a staircase at the left side that leads to the small bridge.
