Marine Life in Tung Ping Chau Marine Park
Tung Ping Chau has the youngest rocks in Hong Kong which are only 55 million years old. These sedimentary rocks are thinly layered siltstones, which look like a delicious “Layer Cake”. The Ping Chau Country Trail is equipped with interpretation signs to introduce the various geological features and coastal landforms, such as a wave-cut platform, sea cliff and sea stacks. Also, Tung Ping Chau Marine Park has a rich and valuable coastal ecosystem, including stony corals, reef-associated fish species, marine invertebrates and algae beds. Famous scenic wonders include Kang Lau Shek, Lan Kwo Shui, Lung Lok Shui and Cham Keng Chau.
