PO TOI ISLAND

Want to get away and be unreachable? Po Toi Island is the perfect location for this. Known as the 'South Pole' of Hong Kong, it is an island located off of Stanley. Until the 1970s, it was home to around 1,000 people, most of whom have since left. Today, you can find many ruins, temples and an abandoned village school. The island is famous for its seaweed, seafood products and peculiar rock formations. We only planned to walk around the island and do a picnic lunch, but ended up doing a hike as well.
