Ap Chau Geosite

Visitors can see extraordinary red breccia at Ap Chau which is rare in Hong Kong, and appreciate a diverse range of striking wave erosion landforms at close range, such as a sea cliff, wave-cut platform, wave-cut notch, sea arch and sea stack, plus the famous ‘Duck’s Eye’. Ap Chau once had a thriving fishing community but only a few villagers continue to live on the island today. Its rustic bucolic charm is still inviting.

 In order to conserve and promote precious heritages on the island, the villagers, the Agriculture, Fisheries and Conservation Department and the Lions Nature Education Foundation have teamed up to establish the Ap Chau Story Room and open for public in April 2018.
