This curious, dumbbell shaped island was originally a fishing haven, ever since the Ming Dynasty. The influx of merchants catering to the fishermen slowly turned it into commercial hub. In the evening, the port is awash with the soft light of the setting sun. Wherever you look, day or night, it’s beautiful. Perhaps that’s why some figured it was a really good spot for suicide. A string of suicides 2000 onwards bestowed the name Death Island to the place. Thankfully, brief plans of commercializing this macabre piece of history were quickly ridiculed and shot down. The island is peaceful and moves calmly through each day, providing tourists a pleasant place to escape from the hustle and bustle of city-life. Check out the temples, the beaches and a cave reputed to once have been the hidey-hole of a pirate.

Well worth the trip from Hong Kong for a relaxing day away from the hustle and bustle of the city. There are some lovely temples and nice beaches. Plenty of places to eat and drink.
We loved this island from the beautiful ferry trip (go slow ferry and return via the fast ferry) to the entrance into Cheung Chau Harbour. Really good tour.
