Heading out from the Clearwater Bay Country Park after doing the circular Clearwater Bay Tree Walk,  we proceeded to the Lung Ha Wan Country Trail with scenic views of Clearwater Bay in all directions from a 290m peak – Tai Leng Tung. If you still think Hong Kong’s about skyscrapers and urban insanity then this following set of photos might help convince you that there’s a different side to Hong Kong – one of isolated islands and clear waters with crescent beaches and breath-taking natural scenery. On a clear day in Hong Kong, personally – nature doesn’t get much better than this.

HK Walkers introduces :

Lung Ha Wan Country Trail extends from Tai Hang Tun to Lung Ha Wan, passing through a scenic region of Clearwater Bay Country Park. There is a public carpark near the entrance in Tai Hang Tun, and a sizeable barbecue area where a kiosk, the Clearwater Bay Visitor Centre and Clearwater Bay Tree Walk are located. Before setting off, you may visit the Visitor Centre to familiarize yourself with nearby recreation facilities, scenic spots and flora diversity.

Adjacent to Tai Hang Tun carpark, the trail entrance is a flight of steps. It takes about half an hour to reach the 291m rounded summit of Tai Leng Tung. Like blunt arrows, the capes juts out into the sea on the eastern shore of Clearwater Bay.

Further up the trail, there is a lookout at a high point where the indented coasts and archipelagos of Clearwater Bay come into full view. In the near distance are Port Shelter and the Ninepins. If you have binoculars handy, you can observe the sea caves on nearby islands. Sculpted by waves, they are masterpieces of nature.

In the past, Lung Ha Wan was a famous tourist spot, popular not only with picnickers but the local film industry, for it was the shooting location for many movies.
