Kiu Tau – Tombolo from Sharp Island – HK National Geopark

Kiu Tau (橋頭) is a small island connected to Sharp Island (Kiu Tsui) by a tombolo. The fun thing about this tombolo is that it’s only visible when the water is low, only letting you pass through to Kiu Tau during low tide. If you catch the right moment, you can walk across and it would seem as though you’re walking on water.

Here, have a look :
