Gateway to the campsite and all the beautiful spots on the island.

This is the Main campsite but you can set-up your tent pretty much any where you like.  

To know a little bit about the history of the island, you must try and visit this re-constructed exhibit house (Free of charge).

Another historical spot on the island. under this roofed historical spot, you will have to use your imagination and see what it was like during the "Dynasty's Era".

In this location, you will encounter some rock climbers from below, the cave, the Clearwater Bay Country Club and on a clear day, you will see the Kwo Chau Kwan To (Nine Pin Group).

Along the way, this is the best spot to take a little dip. 

A novice hiking trail but you may come across this rock carving  on your way to the campsite.

(Note: Be sure not to enter this premises because of the radiations in this facility, though it looks abandon, it has a CCTV camera installed to prevent trespassers and vandalism).  

There are 2 helicopter landing area in this island and 1 of them is this, so that if any of the island hoppers get into trouble...they could be air-lifted (but not to easy to get up here).

Around 232 meters above sea level, Tung Lung Island Summit has a very fun and slightly challenging trail if you start at the campsite. Very good trail for the intermediate and as well as novice hiker.

Kill Nothing But Time, Take Nothing But Picture & Leave Nothing But Footprints

Enjoy The Island!
