Lovers' Rock

Landmark in Wan Chai & Northeast Hong Kong Island

Lovers' Rock or Destiny’s Rock (Yan Yuen Sek) is a phallus-shaped boulder on a bluff at the end of a track above Bowen Rd. Adorned with incense and offerings, it’s a favourite pilgrimage site for women with relationship or fertility problems. It’s busy during the Maidens’ Festival, held on the seventh day of the seventh moon (mid-August).

The easiest way to reach here is to take green minibus 24A from the Admiralty bus station. Get off at the terminus (Shiu Fai Tce; 肇輝台) and walk up the path behind the housing complex.
