Lai Chi Chong Geosite

Western shore of Lai Chi Chong pier showcases rare volcanic sedimentary rocks and a wide variety of sedimentary structures, such as rhythmic bedding, graded bedding, convolute structure and slump structures. Visitors should take extra care when treading on loose rocks, and wet and slippery surfaces. Outcropped rocks are more visible at low tide, so the tidal information should be checked before setting off.
