Po Toi Island video

Po Toi Island - Hong Kong Known as the 'South Pole of Hong Kong', Po Toi is Hong Kong’s southernmost island. Comprised almost entirely of easily weathered granite, the island boasts peculiar-looking rocks, which have been voted as the most beautiful in Hong Kong in public surveys. The island's seaweed is equally renowned, so be sure to try some seaweed soup and take home some dried seafood products.Aproaching the pier, you can catch a glimpse of the Conch Rock to your left. Go left from the pier and follow the trail to the right of the store.Walk across Cheung Shek Pai (a series of granitic rocks forming a natural track) and you will find yourself at the peak of the trail. Take a break at the pavilion to enjoy a boundless view of the South China SeaDescend until you are greeted by what seems to be a huge tortoise slowly making its way uphill and a slender monk on the other side bowing at passers-by.At one of the two southernmost capes of Hong Kong, enjoy the magnificent sea view under the No. 126 lighthouse. Continue down to Gold Panning Cliff, where the shore below abounds with seaweed and waves crash beneath your feet.On your way back to the pier from Nam Kok Tsui, find yourself in awe at the gigantic ‘palm of Buddha’, a hand-shaped feature carved into the face of a cliff by the elements, which is one of the most recognisable landmarks of Po Toi.Follow the path and walk down a flight of stairs to the shore to see 3,000-year-old rock carvings on a cliff in Nam Tum. A Declared Monument, these prehistoric totems have faded considerably and are currently protected by a fibre glass cover.//www.discoverhongkong.com
