Tong Fuk - A quiet beach paradise on Lantau Island, Hong Kong

Tong Fuk village is a quiet area on southern Lantau Island in Hong Kong. It can be reached through the South Lantau Road but most tourists simply pass through the area, without exploring its idyllic beauty, on their way to more popular destinations such as the Tian Tan Buddha at Ngong Ping.

For the locals, Tong Fuk is a popular place for holiday unwinding and recreation. Nearby is a beautiful beach where visitors can rent village houses for a weekend of leisure. Tong Fuk Beach has very good water quality and it has maintained its "Good" annual ranking since 1988. There are also changing rooms, shower, and toilet facilities in the beach which is quite busy during summer (April to October). Lifeguards are also on duty to ensure the safety of beachcombers during peak season, from 9am - 6pm. Despite these facilities and amenities, there are no nearby hotels in the area making Tong Fuk beach one of the lesser known beaches in Hong Kong, especially among tourists.

Aside from the beach, Tong Fuk is also brimming with amazing nature views of mountains and verdant landscapes. There are also several rivers and streams running across Tong Fuk making the area a perfect area for agriculture.

At the east end of the bay is the Tong Fuk Miu or Tong Fuk Temple. Beside the temple is Tong Fuk Submarine Cable Station and South Lantau Submarine Cable Station, where telecommunication cable links various destinations across South China Sea. Tong Fuk is also known as the location of the former Ma Po Ping Prison which is located at nearby Ma Po Ping.

Tong Fuk is on South Lantau Road. Bus routes from Ngong Ping and Tai O at the west to Mui Wo and Tung Chung at the east pass through Tong Fuk.
