Kwun Yam Wan

Outlying Islands

East of the ferry pier and just south of Tung Wan beach is Kwun Yam Wan, a quiet spot popular with windsurfers. Go up the footpath and look for the sign to the Fa Peng Knoll. From the knoll you can walk down to signposted Don Bosco Rd; it leads due south to rocky Nam Tam Wan (aka 'Morning Beach'), where swimming is possible.
