Tung Lung Chau

Time Out says

Rough, rugged and wild, Tung Lung Chau is the craggy cousin of Hong Kong’s island family. It’s regarded as the best place for rock climbing in the territory, with multiple routes of varying difficulty. There’s a campsite on the northeast of the island, about a 20 minutes’ walk from the ferry pier. Close to the campsite is what now remains of Tung Lung Chau Fort. Built between 1662 and 1722, it used to defend the island from pirates.

There’s one main paved trail on the island, which loops from the pier to the top of a hill, offering great views. This trail passes by the largest and oldest rock carving in Hong Kong – measuring 1.8m by 2.4m, it’s (apparently) a depiction of a dragon and is said to be over 5,000 years old. 

How to get there: 
Take the public ferry to Tung Lung Chau from Sam Ka Tsuen Public Pier, Yau Tong.
