Encyclopedia > Po Toi Islands

The Poi To islands (蒲苔群島) are a small group of sparsely inhabited islands (a population of around 200) located south-east of Hong Kong Island, off Stanley, Hong Kong.


The islands are notable for interesting rock formations, and open air seafood restaurants. One of the islands has a haunted house, and some rock carvings supposed to be the epitaph of an emperor who died on or near Po Toi.


Po Toi Islands include:

  • Beaufort Island (螺洲)
  • Po Toi Island (蒲苔島) - 3.69 km
  • Sung Kong (宋崗)
  • Waglan Island (橫瀾島)

Transportation

The islands are accessible mostly by private ferry or water taxi. Some scheduled ferries connect Po Toi island with Aberdeen Harbour, Stanley, North Point and Kwun Tong.
